My sons and I would like to extend our sympathy to the family of Ray. We knew him when he worked at Sears in East St. Louis. My sons' father worked for him. He was very kind to our family. We thought a lot of him. He will be missed.

To all the Castello family, we are so sorry for the loss of your Uncle Ray. We only met him a time or two, however it seemed like he never knew a stranger. What a very kind sole. I know he will be truly missed. Terry and Teresa....our hearts break for you. He was truly blessed as viseversa, with you, in his life.

The family get togethers and big dinners are not going to be the same without you, Ray. Your smile, your laughter and of course your great stories are going to be missed…… not to mention your ‘stuffed onions'!
We're certain that the Gates of Glory were wide open to welcome you. May you rest in peace.
Stand at ease now, soldier. It is time for others to take the watch in your stead.

Words cannot express how much Uncle Ray will be missed. He was such a wonderful man who everyone loved being around. We will always treasure the memories we have of all the special times spent together. We are so happy he was able to share in the lives of our boys and that they were able to know such a special person. We love you and miss you dearly. Watch over us all and take care of Colton.

Always in our hearts,
Brandon, Kim, Chase, and Caden

Uncle Ray, a brilliant, intelligent, and loving Man who not only gave everything in his heart to anyone but also sacrificed himself to fight for this country during the War. He is an exceptional person, one that I am so grateful to have grown up around and then had the privilege to introduce my two boys to. He always brought joy to any occasion and had such a strong passion for life and the people around him.

He will be missed dearly here on earth and things won't be the same but Heaven has gained a new Angel. He will now watch over us in a new way.

We salute you Veteran. Thank You for your Service and being such an important part of our lives.

Love You and Miss You
Ryan, Kim, Cole, & Drew Castello
