  • Obituary
  • Guestbook
Henry R. Castilleja, 87, of Lubbock, Texas passed away Tuesday, October 19, 2021. He was born to Alfonso and Ojenia Castilleja in Rosebud, Texas on July 15, 1934. Henry married Rebecca (Campos) Castilleja in Lubbock, Texas. He was a farmer by trade all his life, and also worked as a ground’s supervisor for Texas Tech for 15 years before retiring. Henry was a true go-getter, getting him to sit still for even five minutes was impossible. He loved old trucks and was an avid Texas Tech Red raiders fan.

Those left to cherish his memory include his wife, Rebecca; children, Rickie Castilleja, Anita C. Renteria, Robert Castilleja, Jimmy Castilleja, all of Lubbock, and Christopher Castilleja of El Paso; siblings, Paul Castilleja of Hallsberg, Texas, Emma Vigil, Robert Castilleja, and Isabel Perez, all of Waco, Texas, Joe Castilleja of Lufkin, Texas, Rudy Castilleja, and Janie Ramirez, both of Hearne, Texas.

Henry was preceded in death by his parents; one daughter, Mary Jane Ayala; one son, Ramon Castilleja; brother, Alfonso Castilleja, Jr.; sister, Gloria Gonzales; and one grandson, Jimmy Ayala.

Visitation will begin at 2:00 p.m. with rosary to be cited at 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 24, 2021 at the Venue on Broadway. Mass of Christian Burial will be 10:00 a.m., Monday, October 25, 2021, at Our Lady of Guadalupe with burial to follow at City of Lubbock Cemetery.
