Remembering Julius Luis Castillo

Julius Luis Castillo was a bright, compassionate, and driven young man who brought joy and laughter to everyone he encountered. He was the best son, brother, grandson, nephew, & friend anyone could ever ask for. He loved being a brother and guided his siblings Joey, Jazelle, Richie, Jesse, Jacob, and Josiah with a keen eye and a hand to hold. He was the most loving and affectionate son to his mother Andrea -always her "little man" when she needed him. Julius had a strong work ethic instilled in him by his father Joe and his grandfather Alan. His Uncle John loved taking him to skate spots and sharing a passion for skateboarding and music with Julius. He was always ready to accompany his Grandma Andrea to church and his Lola Connie to bingo. Ever since he was a toddler, he loved play-sparring with his Uncle Johnny - setting the groundwork for his boxing skills he would later refine as a teenager. Julius was a true gentleman and would always hold the door open for his aunts Sylvia, Ashley, and Rosie on their lunch dates. He enjoyed playing videogames, boxing, working out, and skateboarding with his friends. Julius was talented in his work in welding and landscaping. He knew every word to "I am the Walrus" by The Beatles and would sing the song with joy. 

Julius will forever be missed dearly. We are asking for donations for the funeral & memorial costs so that we can honor him in the same bright light that he shined on all of our lives. 

I will be posting updates with details about memorial services for anyone who would like to attend.
