Mr. Gustavo Castillo, 56, passed away Tuesday, August 16, 2022, in Laredo, Texas. Gus, was larger than life.  If you were his friend, you knew what it felt like to laugh until it hurt.   A loving brother to Jerry and Rick, a wonderful son to Sonny and Alicia, and most of all, a proud father to Matthew, and Jakob. Gus, for all his “wild ways” as a young man, always believed in our Lord Jesus Christ, because he adored his mother.  He was fond of saying “The Lord works in mysterious ways “.  Please join us, as we say “Goodbye, to our Gus”.

He is preceded in death by maternal-grandparents Faustino and Andreita Reyes and paternal-grandparents Susano, Sr. and Juanita Z. Castillo.

Mr. Castillo is survived by his beloved kiddos Matty and Jakeers, parents Susano and Alicia Castillo and his brothers Gerardo R. “Jerry” Castillo and Ricardo “Rick” (Edith) Castillo.  He is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

  3. My brother!! I’m still lost for words!
    I always thought we would get old and grey and listing to the Grease Soundtrack over some beers. I’m very certain that I will see you on the other side, just make sure you have some peanut butter and jelly sandwiches covered in pancake syrup ready when I get there.
    My love and deepest condolences to the Castillo family, relatives and all of the Retama 1&2 friends!

  4. I send my condolences to the family. To the parents of Gus, you and God have created a beautiful person who I fell in love with. I am happy he got to spend his months with you.
    To Gerry and Rick he was so proud of you both and he loved you both very much. To Mat and Jakob you had an incredible dad, he loved you both unconditional. His love we carry with us always…He took your love for him with him to heaven. P.S. he will be telling the Angels in heaven jokes..cracking them up.
