Salomon Castro Jr
Salomon Castro Jr., age 89, passed away peacefully on May 16th, 2023. Sal is preceded in death by his daughter, Linda Marquardt and survived by his wife, Mildred Castro, Daughters Diana Miller and Susan Asselin and grandchildren, Charlotte Parker, Gillian Zeile, Jason Marquardt and Julie Parker.
Sal was a man who lived his life to the fullest, always. He moved to Goleta in 1969, taking a position with Raytheon where he remained until his retirement in 1996. Throughout his life, he enjoyed bicycling, ping pong, woodworking, and always had a variety of projects in the works. He was generous with his handiwork, and I’m certain that his beautiful creations are in homes all over the state. He loved to see people appreciate his pieces and took so much pride in all he built.
Sal was a loving husband, wonderful father and exceptional grandfather. He loved his entire extended family so deeply. He spoke often and warmly of his brothers & sisters, their children, and of his beloved mother until the end. He was a good man. He will be missed.
