Richard Castellano

d. November 20, 2019

Richard Castellano, age 52, returned to the Loving Arms of the Lord, suddenly on Wednesday, November 20, 2019. He was born in Arecibo, Puerto Rico; son of Aracelia Castellano and the late Jose E. Castellano: Richard loved dancing, DJing and was a huge comic fanatic. He enjoyed watching movies with his family and yet his family enjoyed watching him become emotional during those scenes where tears were merited. At times the nickname of Cry baby (given by his children) simply described the amazing heart he had for each and every one of his family and friends and loved nothing more than to love them with his entire being. He enjoyed becoming "Dace" and rapped himself right out of a record contract every single time. He was always the life of the party, but most of all he loved his family beyond the moments, beyond the miles and always put them first in his life. He will be forever missed by all. In addition to his mother, Richard is survived by his wife Yahaira Castellano. He is the loving father of Kacie Castellano, Corinna Castellano, Steven Castellano, Richard Castellano, Jr., and Anastasia Castellano; the adoring grandfather of Omar Contreras and Luna Torres; and the caring brother of Eddie Castellano and Alex Castellano.
