Our beloved Robert Castillo passed away on September 4th, 2023. Robert was a son, godfather, nephew, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend. If you were a friend, then you were Roberts family. He left behind countless loved ones from all walks of his life, and his people meant the world to him. Robert grew up in Dos Palos, California, and spent most of his adult life living in Merced, California. He made a life for himself, all by himself. When Robert walked into a room, others would gravitate toward him, he had this effect on so many people. Robert could light an entire room when he entered it, and he knew how to make an entrance. The loss of Robert is a huge loss, this world quickly became a darker place the moment he left it. As a high school graduate and Class of “97,” he enjoyed being a part of the Drama class and played his roles phenomenally. This is where he fell in love with theatre and Robert was most fond of his role in the school play, Grease. He attended Merced City College, which led to his career in education. After his college years, Robert began working at a school called Saint Lukes Episcopal Church and School, where he would go on to direct his own school plays like the ones he was in, during his high school years. Here, Robert would go on to cast his own rendition of Grease, along with other plays. While working at St. Lukes, Robert loved his job. He was in the classroom, as well as around campus. Robert also was a big part of the after-school program known as K.O.C., Kids on Campus. After St. Lukes closed, Robert went on to work at Target where he was the Executive Team Leader. Here, he developed more friendships, and connections with so many that would last a lifetime, like all those dear to him. Robert did not just make friends, he made connections. Robert was a natural-born leader, and he did it fabulously. He was a self-made person; his personality was bigger than this world. Being the life of the Party came easy. Robert made friends everywhere he went, he did this by traveling and building bonds as he soared through life. He captivated people everywhere he went. Robert lived every stage of his life to the fullest! He is a true living legend, his legacy will live on, and as Robert would say, “Till the Wheels Fall Off!
