Emilio Castro, 23

Emilio Castro, 23, of West Bend, was born to eternal life Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017. He was born on April 2, 1994, in 29 Palms MCAS, California, the dear son of Julio G. Castro and Maria Miller (nee Stockfish). Emilio graduated from West Bend East in 2012. Emilio loved being outside, spending time in the U.P. with his family, fishing with his grandpa, snowboarding and ATVing. He especially enjoyed playing disc golf with his friends. No matter what the situation or who he was talking to, Emilio could put a smile on anyone’s face at any time. He was the most loving and caring person and he will never be forgotten.

Those Emilio leaves behind to cherish his memory include his parents, Maria (Jim) Miller and Julio G. Castro; brother, Julio Cesar Castro; maternal grandparents, Vern and Donna Stockfish; his paternal nana, Maria DeJesus Castro of Nogales, Arizona; his uncles, Brian Stockfish of California, Luis (Flaco) Castro, and Javier (Gordo) Castro; his tia, Anna Fernandez; and his niece, Lilliana Marie Castro. He is further survived by other relatives and friends. Emilio was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Julio Castro Duron.
