On Monday, January 4, 2021, Luis Omar Castano, loving husband, father, abuelo and friend, passed away at the age of 67 at High Point Regional Hospital.
Luis was born on July 4, 1953 in Medellin, Colombia to Luis Eduardo and Mariela Castano. He graduated from East Side High School in Newark, New Jersey. On December 15, 1973 he married the love of his life Fabiola. They just celebrated their 47th wedding anniversary, a true testament of his faith, love and commitment. Together they raised their two children Diana and Luis Carlos.
Luis enjoyed all things food, sports, family and faith. He rooted for the underdogs - his Mets & Jets! He loved Colombian cumbia, family vacations, Tom Jones and most especially his grandchildren. He was known for standing up for what he believed in, saying what he thought, his laugh, and his big heart and compassionate spirit.
Luis was preceded in death by his father Luis Eduardo, and his mother, Mariela. He is survived by his wife Fabiola, his two children, Diana and Carlos, his five grandchildren Diego, Darious, Samantha, Sarah and Daniella, and several brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and cousins.
To continue his legacy and his belief in higher education, a contribution can be made to the Luis Castano College Memorial Fund, 3908 Lake Meadow Dr. Jamestown, NC 27282.
