Don and Ida were our neighbors and friends for over 50 years. I helped teach Don golf & got Don & Ida to take up skiing. One of our largest arguments was over the wording of the FIGS. We are sorry to loose a dear friend. Cliff & Diane Morton

I don't have the words. Don was my friend and I knew he was a person who really loved and cared about his family and friends. If I needed something I could always count on Don's support. Our sympathy to Ida and family.
Don & Ida have been a part of our lives for about 45 years with the Jaycees, the Deli, crab feeds and card games. He is loved and will be missed by many.

truly be missed. The Banuelos Family
To this day, I am proud of my association with the Castro family and C&C Deli. Such a loving family, and always treated me as one of their own. I will be eternally grateful to Don for being a father figure to me, and for showing me what a real man, and a real gentleman, is. I will always love you, Ghoomba!
Don you gave this 15 year old a job working at the deli. I really appreciated everything you have done for me and my brother Tom. You were always there for your employees through thick and thin. You will be missed , and always remembered for your kind work you have done for the youth in Pinole. I thank God for Don Castro, and now you can rest with The Lord. And you can teach him a few of the golf swings you have. Love you Keith
Mr. Castro was the example of a fine family man and a friend to all! Most of all a gentlemen !
You are already so missed and what great memories the town of Pinole will hold with each of us . God bless

He was a true part of Pinole's history. Everyone who went into C&C felt that he was a friend because he treated you that way. His passing is a really hard thing for his friends and family to endure, and my heart is with them all.
You will always be in my heart, memories from the Jaycees and C&C for wonderful food. May you rest in peace and say hi to my dad for me.
You were more like a Dad to me than a uncle. You will always be in my thoughts. missing you
Dad & I will miss you dearly. So blessed to have had you in our lives, you are loved so much. May you be at peace now.
I will always think of him as Uncle Don. My mom (and the rest of the family) sure enjoyed visiting the whole family and the deli. Don, Ida, Jeannie and Tony will always be an important part of my childhood memories.
It was a pleasure being around you. Thank you for treating me and my family as part of your own. May you rest in paradise. Gone but never forgotten
