Carlos R. Castro (Carluchi) passed away on December 25, 2017 at the age of 67. The Lord graced him to enter this world on Easter Sunday April 9, 1950 and called on him to rest Christmas morning December 25, 2017. Carluchi grew up in San Pedro, CA until his family moved to Wilmington, CA. He then attended Phineas Banning High School and graduated on June 14, 1968. Carluchi was a Real Estate Agent for Century 21 in San Pedro, CA and he later became an ILWU Local 13 Longshoreman. He was versed in history and could provide excellent facts to those who were interested. Carluchi enjoyed listening to the likes of Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and Mel Tormé with his Father. His love for the Pacific Ocean included spending time at LA and Orange County beaches along with trips to Catalina Island well into his retirement. Catalina Island was a special destination for him; one that was nostalgic in holding memories of his parents. Carluchi’s engaging personality, warmth, and sense of humor sealed the deal. Wherever Carluchi went he knew someone and if people didn’t know him when he arrived they did when he left. Who can forget him? Not a single one. He was and still is very much loved by his family and friends. Carluchi was preceded in death by his Mother Beatriz R. Gonzalez, Father Carlos T. Castro Sr., Aunt Guadalupe Morales (Tia), Sister Aida Gonzalez, Brothers Raul Gonzalez and Carlos Gonzalez (Charlie), Nephews Raul Gonzalez Jr., Vincent Medina and Mario Medina who were also ILWU Local 13 Longshoreman. He is survived by Sisters Helen Saldaña, Vida Milla, Aida Morales, Brother Manuel Amaro (Manny), and four generations of Nieces and Nephews who reside in CA, IL, MA, OK, TX, and WV. Carluchi was laid to rest at Green Hills Memorial Park in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA.
