Acushnet landmark Pop Casey’s to close its doors after filling locals’ bellies and warming hearts for decades


UPDATE: Our deepest condolences to the Baker Family. Lynn Irene Baker, 64, lost her battle with cancer and passed away one day before her birthday this Sunday. Lynne and husband Douglas satisfied bellies and hearts for decades with their beloved Pop Casey’s, a restaurant they inherited from Lynne’s grandfather and father who opened its doors in 1947.

A recent post on Pop Casey’s Facebook page broke the sad news about proprietor Lynn Baker’s health. Pop Casey’s has been serving their delicious fare to countless customers for decades – filling bellies, putting smiles on people’s faces at an affordable price. We wish Lynn and family the best of health and luck!

We sure will miss them!

“To our loyal customers, family and friends,

It is with my deepest regret to inform you all that Pop Casey’s will be not be reopening after our vacation. It has been a very difficult decision for my family and I to come to this conclusion, the most difficult decision I have ever had to make.

As most of you are aware, I have been battling Cancer for two years now. In April of 2019 I was told my cancer has metastasized to my liver and that is was not curable only treatable. I decided to embark on a journey to heal myself naturally with the help of my family. It is an extremely regimented and time-consuming protocol, called Gerson Therapy. My most recent scan on August 1st showed very positive and encouraging results, the cancer has stopped spreading and numerous tumors are shrinking!! I am determined to beat this horrible disease, but it is going to be a long road ahead.

I would like to thank everyone of you personally for the positive thoughts, support and prayers during the difficult time. We plan on taking a few months to make some many needed changes and hope to be back serving you all soon. Your understanding during this temporary challenge is much appreciated by myself and my entire family.

Kindest regards,

Lynn Baker
Pop Casey’s.”
