Reynaldo Castro was born on October 13, 1929, in Mission, Texas to Gregorio and Hortencia Cantu Castro. He married the love of his life Francisca (Frances) Castillo in Donna, Texas. Reynaldo and Frances were blessed with eight children in their marriage. Reynaldo shared his faith in God with family and friends. He learned early in life the value of working hard for himself and others. Along with the love and devotion to his family, Reynaldo had many wonderful friendships, a lot gained through his great love of baseball. He began playing at an early age in leagues in the Rio Grande Valley. When he moved with his family up north to Bryan, he became a member of the LULAC Council 229 Baseball Team. He was an outstanding first baseman. Many many family friendships grew through those great years. As he came along in his later years, some of life’s memories may have faded for him but never the days he spent playing baseball. Those were memories he loved to share with anyone who was there to listen. We loved to see how it lit up his face.
Reynaldo is preceded in death by his wife, Frances Castro; his sons Reynaldo Castro Jr., Joaquin Castro; his grandsons, Louis Don Garcia and Jeremy R. Rodriguez, and his beautiful granddaughter Sarah-Frances Danielle Hernandez; his sisters, Rebecca Castro – Hernandez Cardona, Oralia Castro Garcia, Raquel Castro Gonzalez, Juanita Castro Zuniga; and brother, Gregorio Castro.
His life legacy continues through his children, Angel Castro and wife Delicia of Round Rock, Anita and husband Roy Garcia of Chicago, Irene Moreno of Dallas, Edward Castro and wife Laura of Chicago, Corina and husband John Cavazos of San Antonio, Stella and husband Danny Hernandez of San Antonio; his brother, Ruben Castro; his sister, Ortencia Castro Falcon; his 28 grandchildren, 50 great-grandchildren, and 9 great-great-grandchildren.
