Help lay Johnny Castillo to rest

On August 27th, a beloved husband, father, brother, uncle and friend was taken too soon due to a tragic accident. He was born and raised in Los Banos, CA where he married Brandy Hitchcock on March 17, 1996 after being together almost a decade. They had 6 beautiful children Daniel, Jonathon, Joey, Jennifer, Jasmine and Jordan. His family has always meant everything to Johnny, especially his children. 

Tragedy struck them early on, when heaven called for their youngest at the time; Joey Castillo when he was just 3 years old. They made it through that incredibly tough time, together, as a family. 

He worked hard for his family and loved his job with the California Department of Fish and Game. He loved his work and didn’t miss a day. They bought their family home in Los Banos and raised their family in it and are still in the same home to this day. 

A few years ago, Johnny got a back injury on the job and was told by the doctors that he unfortunately needed to stop working. Throwing their whole world upside down. Around the same time, Brandy was also injured and unable to work and they have been on disability. Due to this financial hardship we are trying to seek help to bury him and to get his family in a place without worry. He was an amazing man and an even better father and husband. We are trying to do what he would do for anyone. He was the type to give the shirt off his back to a stranger. 

Thank you and we would appreciate all the prayers and well thoughts that we can get!
