Gabriel A. Castillo Memorial Fund

March 17, 2018 is a day that will forever cause a unimaginably deep scar in all those that knew and loved Gabriel Castillo.  His passing was incredibly sudden and unexpected and has left the community searching for answers. A recent graduate of the  very first Aviation Maintenance program at Eastern Florida State College here in Brevard County, FL and just 48 hours away from his first day at Apex Executive Jet Center in Melbourne. He was dedicated in all that he did and our family was so excited and hopeful for this new journey he was about to begin. We are now left to pick up the pieces of our new life without him and learning to move forward. 

As his sister, I am creating this Gofundme to help ease the costs for his funeral service this coming weekend. A tragedy that no one plans for leaves not only an emotional strain but a financial one in order to cover the expenses for a proper burial for my brother.  The immediate Castillo family will be handling the funds and ensuring they are dispersed appropriately. 

The funeral service will be at the Life Event Center at Florida Memorial in Rockledge, FL. The services are as follows: 
Visitation from 1:00 to 2:00 pm
Funeral Service from 2:00 to 3:00pm
Graveside Service from 3:00 to 3:00 pm

5950 South U.S. Highway 1
Rockledge, FL 32955

All those who loved and knew Gaby are welcome to join us to celebrate his life.
