Manuel Castillo Vaglienty

December 25, 1952July 18, 2020

Manuel Castillo Vaglienty was born December 25, 1952 in the small town of Villa Juarez Mexico to Francisco and Gregoria Vaglienty. Manuel met the love of his life, Delia Villa, in 1969 in Anaheim, California. They married in 1971. In 48 years of marriage, they proudly raised 3 boys: Jose Manuel, Juan Carlos and Freddy Vaglienty. He was a grandfather to 9 beautiful grandchildren: Jose Armando, Jacob Alexander, Alison Kate, Elise Rien, Charlie Cooper, Abigail June, and Quinn Rose Vaglienty, Ariatna Yamile, and Andrick Yazael Vaglienty. He was also a great-grandfather to 5 beautiful great-grandchildren; Helena Sofia, Hayden Santiago, Relena Grace, Ivy Renee and Waverly Hermione Vaglienty. Father-in-law to Stacey Marie and Adrianne Lynn Vaglienty. Manuel was the youngest boy of 9 siblings. Because of this, they called him “El Coyote”. He is survived by his siblings, Moses, Irma, Ruben, Jose, Jesus, Coco, and Lula Vaglienty. He is preceded in death by his sister Paca and both parents, Francisco and Gregoria Vaglienty. In the 67 years of his beautiful life, Manuel was known for many things. In addition to being a devoted husband and loving father, more importantly, Manuel served our heavenly father, Jehovah, for over 30 years. Manuel was a carpenter by trade, and many said he was an “artist” with his woodwork craft. Carpentry is a family trade he learned from his brother Moses. He would often recall how his brother Moses taught him how to use and read a tape measure, which led to a long and successful career that supported his family and brought him great joy. At this time, we would like to reflect on the great man that Manuel was and reflect on the relationships he had with so many that respected and loved him. His impact on others is well known in his congregation, his co-workers, friends and family. With his wit, humor, and willingness to always do for others, we know his impact will continue to be felt for years to come. Javier Castillo, co-worker, mentee, friend recalled how Manuel would always give him advice. He talked to him for an hour after each workday and told him how proud he was of his sons. Charlie, for his leadership and career in education and the difference he makes in the lives of students and educators each day, and, Freddy, for the successful career and reputation he has built within his industry. He was proud for the men they grew up to be. In addition, he was also a proud grandfather to his two oldest grandsons, Baby Jose and Jacob, for the great young men and fathers they have become. Freddy, youngest son, “My father always told me no matter if we were talking about work, doing work around the house, or being a husband and father; he would always say, “Haga las cosas bien” Do the right thing, Do it right."" Many people would say that he never came to their door empty-handed. He always had a fruit of their liking. His granddaughter, Abigail, loved cantaloupe, and he made sure she always had some! Alison loves mangoes, and he would drop them off, just to see her smile. One of the most important things dad taught us was how to treat people. He would always go out of his way to help anyone he could. It didn’t matter if they were family, friends, neighbors or someone he just met. If he could help them in any way, he would. Charlie, middle son, " My daddy was small in stature, but a giant of a man when it came to loving his family and taking care of his boys. Whether it was doing projects with us or hiding his grandkids shoes, Dad always made time for us., always had time to take a call and answer a question. Even though we were older, he always called us, checked on us, and visited us, like we were still his little children. I knew my Dad's love was never ending; he proved that everyday. He was always sacrificing himself for the betterment of us and others.I was blessed to have been his son for 42 wonderful years. Without his love and support, we would not be who we are and where we are today. We love you Manuelini.”
