Kasey Spoon Obituary

Kasey Alexander Spoon of Arcata died October 22, 2023, just five days short of his 53rd birthday. Kasey lived an astonishing life filled with creativity and love.

He has passed into the next life leaving behind countless friends and devoted family members. He is survived by Kalex Sweetfire Spoon, his son, and his parents John S. Spoon and Nomi Sweetfire. His brothers Brother John, Sunni Paul, and William Trent, as well as his sister Jodi Ann Spoon-Sadlon, honor his passing as he joins their brothers; Clayton Dean, Rolland Neil (Butch), and Anthony Scot in the hereafter.

Kasey was a rebel, a fighter, but he was always known as a brother. Growing up in the Santa Clarita Valley, the “seventh son” began an unconventional path of exploration and experience that led him to many places and relationships… Saugus, Encinitas, San Juan Capistrano, Dana Point, and Smith River, all were places he lived but, he found his home (and his people) in the small historic town of Arcata in Humboldt County amongst the mighty redwoods he loved.

Kasey’s legacy includes many years of thought-provoking artwork; free verse poems, hand-painted canvasses and murals, tattoos, as well as mixed media, and most recently amazing works in the digital realm. Accomplished as he was, his greatest work was being a good father and raising his son to know the importance of serving others and helping those around you. He organized many charitable efforts in his hometown, including sock drives for the homeless.

His son, Kalex Sweetfire-Spoon, has initiated and directed a film project about Kasey’s life story and ultimate battle with ALS, as well as his poetry and artwork. The crowd-funded film “Falling Apart Is Fine Art” due for release in the near future.
