He also enjoyed tractor and side by side rides with his grandchildren whom he loved dearly. He was also attended the Faith Assembly of God. 

He is survived by his wife of 43 years Jeannette Baker Casto; sons Estel Casto and David Casto (Kelsey); Grandchildren David “Hemi” Casto, Shelly Casto, Joey Casto, and Levi Casto. He is also survived by several extended family members and friends
