As well as being a famous voice on the radio, Casey could also be heard providing the voice for Shaggy in various incarnations of Scooby Doo.
In 2013 Kasem was diagnosed with an aggressive form of dementia - Lewy Body dementia - and was quickly unable to speak.  During his illness his wife Jean removed him from the nursing home in which he had been staying, and an investigation was launched into his whereabouts, due to the fact that his children from his first marriage had not been allowed to see him for several months.
A committed vegan, Casey resigned from performing the voice of Shaggy in Scooby-Doo when he was asked to voice him in a commercial for Burger King.  He returned to the show after negotiating that Shaggy's character became a vegetarian.
