DJ Joey Casio shared his passion for performing in a 2012 9th Floor Radio interview. "I've always wanted to strive to create something new," he said.

Friend Calvin Johnson says he did. "Joey is a visionary in terms of music," he said. "He really knew where he was going and he experimented with that and he pushed those boundaries."

Johnson says Casio, whose given name was Joseph Matlock, was a well known DJ who initially made his mark in Olympia, Wa. where he released music on the record label K.

A friend shared video of him performing in Davis. Everyone was dancing. "That's one of the first things I noticed about his shows," said Johnson. "That right away he just had people going."

Johnson told ABC7 News that off stage Casio was gentle and tender. "He's still fresh in all our minds," said Johnson.

Peter Wadsworth is fresh in the minds of those who knew him as well. His former Lower Haight roommate describes him as having a quirky intelligence and always looking out for others. She says when she traveled to Boston, he made sure she had emergency numbers and knew all the good restaurants.

Wadsworth, a local consultant, had previously studied in Boston at Harvard University. At the time of the fire, Wadsworth was living at the Ghost Ship warehouse.

Friends are also grieving couple Wolfgang Renner and Michele Sylvan who attended the party together.
