On a summer weekend, the Cascios are expecting their son Paulie to arrive at their beach house with a guest. In he strides with…15 friends? "Mom, Mom," he says, "how could we choose?", his mother, Janet, recalled.
Mr. Cascio usually elected not to choose: his preference was to open his arms wide and rush at the world, sweeping up his younger brother Evan and as many friends as he could. Happily spending every penny he earned, Mr. Carpe Diem, a proud denizen of lower Manhattan,went diving in Fiji and skiing wherever the air smelled of snow. A friend would mention a half-idea for an adventure and Mr. Cascio, 23, a secret hard worker who had just been named a vice president of Euro Brokers, would reply, "Done! We’re doing it!"
His enthusiasm was undimmed. Every weekend was "incredible!" But fun only became more so if he could share it: "We’re having the best time, you’ve got to get down here!"
On occasion, Mr. Cascio did choose. When he was visiting from college, a first stop was always his three little cousins. Friends would telephone and Mr. Cascio, on the floor with the children, would reply: "I can’t see you now, I’m busy!"
