Thinking of you and your family during this sad time. Our thoughts are with you and we want you to know we send our love and heartfelt sympathy. We carry the memory of Tom with us always and what a wonderful person he was. Hoping as the days go by you will be comforted by all the happy memories.

Tom was such a Loving Devoted Family Man. I will never forget ALL the Love he showed his Beautiful wife Pearl. He also was such a Gentleman. He was So proud of his children and Grandchildren. He would always beam with pride and a Great big smile when he spoke of them.

While it has been a life-time since I saw the Castro's, I am very sorry to hear of Mr. Castro's passing. Susan and I were best friends at Laurel Elementary along with Jeannie Motta and Francine Silva. I remember spending time after school at their house, playing on weekends and spending the night. I remember being very impressed when I saw Mr. Castro in his uniform the first time. He and Mrs Castro had strong morales, ethics and values and built a strong and kind family on that base. They...

I only met Chief Castro a couple of times early in my career. Back in my days with the San Lorenzo FD and then the Eden Consolidated FD, I can say that he was held in high regard by the Chief Officers in those departments. My sympathy to the Castro family and the younger Tom I worked with later in my career.

Our prayers and thoughts are with the Castro family at this time. Stay strong and God bless.

My sincerest condolences to the Castro family. I met the Chief in 1978, while working for Eden Fire. Throughout the years the Chief remained kind and supportive. I'll never forget his great smile and how lucky I was to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
