Daniel Casey Bliven Daniel Casey Bliven, 32, of Grantsville, Utah was involved in a tragic car accident that took his life in the early morning of Friday, February 26, 2021. Casey, as we all called him, was born on August 18, 1988 to Daniel and Jill Bliven in Salt Lake City, Utah and grew up in Tooele, Utah. Casey was a cowboy, he enjoyed all things country; riding horses, riding bulls, fishing, hunting, country music, drinking beers with his buddies by a fire.. if it was country, Casey loved it! As a child Casey was groomed to live the lifestyle of a country boy. A true cowboy at heart. It all started I'm sure because his mom would dress him up in the cutest little Wranglers and cowboy boots.. not to mention he was rocking a bad ass mullet very early in life. As he grew up he was influenced by his uncles and his cousins who also shared a love of all things country. Casey had such a passion for rodeo, for the rodeo lifestyle, for the cowboy lifestyle so when that little cowboy with the blonde mullet grew up that is exactly what he did! Casey found peace when he was riding a bull. He found comfort in the challenge of staying on for 8 seconds and the thrill of the ride that came afterward. Just as he had that passion for rodeo, he had that same passion for life. Many that knew Casey, knew that he had his struggles in life. He had his fair share of dark moments, but just as he did with rodeo, he would fall off and get right back on. Never waivering in trying to be the best cowboy he could. Anyone that thinks of Casey will remember him as a true blue cowboy. A person with the kindest heart, that would give the shirt off of his back, that was always there to lend an ear or offer advice. They will remember him as someone with strength to persevere, with grit and guts through the hard times. Someone who was daring, bold and courageous. Most importantly someone who had a kind and gentle soul. Someone that will be missed greatly. A cowboy that will live on through his children, family, friends and all the lives that he has touched. Preceded in death by his parents. Casey leaves behind his fiance, Acacia Wanlass who is currently expecting his third child. He also leaves behind a little cowboy, Hayes Bliven and a little cowgirl Lainey Bliven. As well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and even many second cousins. He was a son, a fiance, a father, a nephew, a cousin and found out later in his life, that he was also a brother, but most importantly Casey was a friend to so many and in so many ways. Growing up as an only child, family was very important to him and he treated everyone he knew like family. To him family was more than just blood; they were his childhood friends, his rodeo pals, his buddies from the rig and to him his family was large and he will be missed greatly by that family.
