Lee Roy Castillo of Arlington, TX passed away on Thanksgiving evening at the age of 76. Originally from Konawa, OK he relocated to Arlington, TX after high school in 1958 and met the love of his life, Geraldine (Jerrie) Nivens of Dallas, TX. They married in 1961. Lee Roy was drafted into the Army in 1963, serving his country until being honorably discharged in 1965. He returned to Arlington, became a butcher, and built his life around his family. Lee Roy was a very fun and loving man who enjoyed working with his hands either in the meat department, wood working shop, or just around the house. He had a passion for collecting knives, watches, and eagle figurines. You could always count on his smile and chuckle to brighten up your day. Lee Roy is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jerrie; his children, Kim Acosta and Lee Roy Castillo Jr.; his grandchildren, Gabriel, Alexis, Adriana, and Ginny; and many friends. He joins his daughter, Annette Castillo, in heaven.
