Arturo “Art” Castillo’s family will celebrate his life of 67 years at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 5, 2020, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. Seating is limited to 65 seats, face coverings are mandatory, and the staff will enforce social distancing in compliance with state regulations. These precautions are to ensure that the family and our community are safe. The service will be live-streamed on this page, where you are encouraged to sign the virtual guestbook and share memories and expressions of sympathy. In honor of Mr. Castillo’s wishes, he will not be available for visitors.On June 30, 1953, Arturo was born to Ramon and Isidra Castillo in Harlingen, Texas. He married Helen Lucero Castillo on April 5, 1975, in Hereford, Texas. His hobbies and interests included: Model airplanes, motorcycles, beekeeping, hosting barbeques, travel (he rode his motorcycle in 49 out of the 50 United States, only missing Alaska). He accomplished two Iron Butt, (1,000 miles in less than 24 hours), motorcycle rides. He was a pilot in his younger years. The majority of his career was spent in aviation. He worked for Southwestern Public Service and Bell Helicopter in Amarillo, where the Osprey is built. He ended his career at the FAA field office in Lubbock, Texas, serving in multiple capacities (most recently as the Operations Unit Supervisor). His work life was dedicated to saving the lives of others. His home life was dedicated to the same in that he sought out opportunities to “save lives” in both literal and metaphorical capacities. He loved others first and, therefore, was loved by many in return. He encouraged those he came into contact with and met life with a positive attitude. He was a very loving husband, father, friend, and mentor to many.Survivors include his wife, Helen Castillo; their children, Arthur (Krysten) Castillo and Jonathan (Jessica) Castillo; grandchildren, Jonah and Jacob Castillo; and siblings, Ramon Castillo, and Maria Lopez.
