Eluterio Castor

February 20, 1941 — July 14, 2018

Mr. Eluterio Fernandez Castor , 77, of Killeen was born Feb. 20, 1941 in Johnson City, Texas to Roberto R. Castor and Cruz Fernandez. He married Guadalupe Jimenez on Feb 7, 1959 in Caldwell, Texas and lived in Killeen Texas . They met at a dance and were blessed with 7 children, 10 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren.

His love of working with his hands on all things mechanical led him to a career as an automotive mechanic. He worked at several dealerships in Killeen before opening his own Garage. Lutie entered the Federal Active Service on 30 November 1972 and retired on the 30 November 2007 after 35 years of dedicated service. He served as a Mobile Equipment Mechanic, Directorate of Logistics, Garrison Command, Ft. Hood, Texas. His awards and decorations included numerous Performance Awards for outstanding service and U.S. patents.

His retirement years were spent enjoying time with his wife, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and his dog Penny. As a young man, he played baseball in the Pan American League. He enjoyed coaching his sons in Little League and following the fighting Killeen Kangaroos football team. He never met anyone he didn't consider a friend and was always willing to give a helping hand. He enjoyed meeting people and striking up a conversation. Give him a cup of McDonald's coffee and have a sit and the time would fly by. He could tell you stories of how Killeen had grown and of traveling in his trusty car on country roads with the window rolled down and branches touching your arm, where highways now run. His childhood friends were lifelong. He was known and loved by many and will be missed.
