Allen Case, a founder of Case-Mason Inc. in Joppa, collapsed and died Dec. 15 as he was leaving his office to pursue one of his favorite pastimes -- goose-hunting on the Eastern Shore.
Mr. Case, 64, of Warren Manor Court in Cockeysville drove himself to Fallston General Hospital complaining of a headache and was taken to the Maryland Shock Trauma Center, where he died of a brain aneurysm.
As an organ donor, Mr. Case helped three other patients.
A native of Quincy, Mass., Mr. Case was a 1945 graduate of the St. Paul's School for Boys and then attended the Johns Hopkins University, where he joined the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. He left for two years in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Newfoundland.
Mr. Case worked for 22 years for the Barr-Stalfort Co., becoming vice president of sales for the aerosol manufacturing and filling business until it closed.
In 1974, Mr. Case and a partner bought some of its equipment and founded Case-Mason, a manufacturing and contract packaging business in Joppa.
He was a member of the Baltimore Country Club and the Paint and Powder Club.
Mr. Case also served on the board of directors of the St. Paul's alumni association and the Saints and Sinners Club.
An avid fisherman and waterfowl hunter, he belonged to the T. F. Lodge, a hunting and fishing club in Centreville.
Mr. Case is survived by his wife of 41 years, the former Margaret Sherman; a daughter, Margaret Gugerty of Bel Air; a son, Allen Case Jr. of Timonium; and four grandchildren.
Services were held Dec. 18 at the Church of the Redeemer, with burial in Green Mount Cemetery.
