José Serrato Castillo, de 86 años de edad, fue a casa de nuestro Señor, el 28 de marzo de 2022, en Conroe, Texas. Nació en General Zaragoza, Nuevo León, México. A finales de los años 70, se mudó de California a Pharr, luego a San Juan antes de establecerse en Conroe. Era un amoroso esposo, padre, abuelo, bisabuelo, hermano y amigo. Fue un caballero honesto, trabajador y noble que nunca se le olvidaba llevarle flores a su pareja. Disfrutaba de la caza, la pesca, el juego de barajas y siempre estaba listo para un juego de Chalupa. Era conocido por su alma gentil y, aunque era de voz suave, tenía un ingenioso sentido del humor. Amaba el aire libre y desarrolló un amor por el dibujo. Le preceden en la muerte sus dos hermanos, Pedro Castillo y Alejandro Castillo, sus tres hermanas, María Castillo De La Rosa, Vicenta Castillo Arreazola y Tomasa Castillo. A José le sobreviven su devota y amorosa esposa de 64 años, Josefina Pedraza Castillo; hijas, Dora (+Oscar) Cárdenas de Conroe; Julia (Edgar) Pérez de Conroe; su hijo Jaime Castillo (Patty) de New Braunfels; 4 nietos; Christina (Roy) Taylor de Colorado, Jessica (Marco) Barbato de The Woodlands, Amanda Pérez de Austin, Johann Castillo de New Braunfels; 6 bisnietos: Magdalena, River, Titus y Ofelia Taylor; Ardriana y Valentina Barbato y sus dos hermanas, Trinidad Vargas de Crosby y Severa Castillo de México.
