Our beloved Cason Wesley Hines born December 4th, 2009, along with twin brother Gunner, to Nathan and Keeli Hines in Lubbock, Texas surrounded by so many family members (already loving him) that we did not fit in the room. Cason went into the arms of Jesus on August 7th, 2023. He was starting 8th grade at Ira ISD where he was a member of the football, basketball, and track teams. Science was his favorite subject where he got to learn about the universe, the world we live in and the animals, reptiles, and amphibians he chased every day. Cason was an amazing, smart and witty 13 year old who had so many nicknames including Pessles, Catfish, JJ, Tate, Cator, Wesley, GunCase, Tasons and Bubba. Cason accepted Jesus and was baptized October 1st, 2017. He served others by teaching Sunday school with his family and prepared meals with his mom, dad, brother and MIMI at the Freeway Ministry at Calvary Baptist Church.
