Diego Castillo, a resident of Lemitar, passed peacefully in his sleep on Oct. 30, 2020, at the age of 86.
He spent most of his time with family, friends, and his two cutting horses. Diego was always happy to lend a hand to anyone who needed help, and those who knew him would say that he always had a smile on his face.
He was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Sofia Castillo.
Diego is survived by his three children, a son-in-law, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Diego will be laid to rest next to his beloved wife, Sofia, in the Santa Fe National Cemetery at a later date. Please sign Diego’s online tribute at www. romerofuneralhomenm.com Romero Funeral Home, 609 N. Main St., Belen, N.M.
