Jose Castillo

August 20, 2021


On August 20, 2021 Jose Rafael Castillo peacefully passed away surrounded by his loved ones. He was 82 years old.


Our father was soft-spoken, caring, and had tremendous love for his family.  He was a generous man who did not think twice about helping others, had a never-ending drive to provide a better life for his family and enjoyed seeing his children, grand-children and everyone around him prosper.  In addition, our father instilled in his children the value of education, despite not having a formal education himself.


We ask that in lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to The Mariposa DR Foundation in our father’s honor (see link below). Thanks in advance for your support! 

Jose Rafael is survived by his wife Carmen Castillo, children: Miguelina Alvarez, Luisa Bernal,  Ruddy Castillo and Yuderca Castillo. His youngest brother Alberto Ventura. Son-in-laws Fermin Alvarez, Geuris Bernal and Thomas Wilson. Daughter-in-law Gloria Ramirez Castillo. Grand-children Gissel and Fermin Alvarez Jr., Karina and Kayla Bernal, Emma and Victoria Castillo, Jayden Jose and Anandi Wilson.
