Tom Castiglia Memorial Fund

On January 26, 2019 Tom Castiglia of Scripps Ranch was hiking with friends in Lakeside in San Diego County. He told friends he was experiencing shortness of breath. Members of the hiking group navigated their way into an area with cell phone coverage and called for help. When they returned Tom was missing. Working with the San Diego County Sheriff and Search and Rescue, Tom’s body was located overnight and identified Sunday. 


Tom leaves behind his wife Martha and his son Ben, a freshman at Arizona State University. 

Funds will be used for funeral related expenses of our beloved Tom. 

The Castiglia family appreciates all the outpouring of concern and love regarding their loss.  It is wonderful to know Tom was so loved.  At this time, the family asks for a few days of privacy while all family members are notified and arrangements made.  They will provide service information soon.

We invite you to remember all the great times you had together, the times he was there for you, and the love that he shared. 

Please help by sharing this link on social media. Let’s do what we can to help the Castiglia family during this difficult time.
