Felix E. Castillo passed away at St. Mary’s Hospital on May 1, 2009. Felix was born to Juan and Felicitas Castillo in El Paso, Texas on November 13, 1948. On April 15, 1974, he married Estela Mendoza.
Felix worked in the construction business as a concrete worker for most of his life. He loved to sit outside in the sun and play with his grandchildren. When someone needed a place to stay and a good home cooked meal, Felix would open up his home until they could get back on their feet.
Felix had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke. He was much loved by Estela, his wife of 35 years and all of his family. Felix has resided in Mesa County for over 20 years and will be missed by all who knew him. He was a great Dallas Cowboys fan and his favorite quarterback of all time was Roger Staubach.
