Gretna

Mario Rene Castillo entered into eternal rest peacefully on Monday, June 19, 2023 surrounded by his family after a battle with Alzheimer's. He was 73 years old and resident of Terryown, LA. He was preceded in death by his Mother (Emerita), Father (Jorge), and younger brother (Tavo). He is survived by his beloved wife of 47 years, Debbie Dykes Castillo, and his 3 daughters, Amy (Severan), Lisa (Shane), and Lacey (Mitch). He is also survived by his brother Jorge Castillo, and his Grandchildren: Carsey, Bella, Cheryl, Liam, Alanah, Ahna, Natalie, Elizabeth, Kaleb, and Marina. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Grace Hannah, Brother-in-law Ricky Dykes (Sherry), a godson Rene Linares, and his bonus son Christian Ricks (Ginger). In addition to an abundance of nieces, nephews, cousins, and long time friends he considered brothers. He moved from La Ceiba, Honduras to New Orleans in 1960 and graduated from Redemptorist High School in 1970. He was a long time employee of Advance Electric of New Orleans, Kass Bros Inc in Westwego and Beverly Industries in Bridge City. Mario was proud of his 3 daughters, and talked about them constantly. He took a lot of joy in working in his yard and listening to his Spanish and Golden Oldies music. He was a lover of action movies, especially Bruce Lee. He was a die hard Saints fan. He lived to cheer on his black and gold, and LSU as well. One of his many pleasures was food, he enjoyed New Orleans food from Cajun dishes to boiled seafood.
