Frank Timothy Castro died suddenly the morning of January 1, 2021 in Spring, TX.

Tim, as he was known by his family and friends, was born in Clear Lake on January 22, 1977, to Frank and Debbie Castro, lifelong residents of the South Belt community.

He graduated from Dobie High School in 1995 and continued his education at the University of Houston-Clear Lake where he earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology and sociology.

Shortly after completing his studies at UH-Clear Lake, Tim moved to Spring, TX where he began working in the insurance business as an insurance agent with the American Automobile Association (AAA) then moved to an agent position with SIG/F&M Insurance Group in The Woodlands.

Tim had a unique way of forming relationships and never met a stranger who didn’t soon become a friend. He was able to make anyone laugh with his creative sense of humor and his ability to turn any moment into fun. He enjoyed good conversation along with hosting his family and friends for holidays and other celebrations. He was the ‘glue’ for his family.

Tim also enjoyed playing tennis and other indoor/outdoor games, including cornhole. He was very competitive, even though most of the games he played were “family friendly.” Outside of his spare time spent with family and friends, Tim also volunteered to work events for Spectrum, a catering, concession, and special events service company. Events he volunteered to work include the Houston Open, Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, and KAABOO Del Mar, to name a few. He loved music, and it was a challenge to play Song Quiz against him because he was unbeatable. For that matter, he was amazing at any trivia game.

His two sons were the joy of his life. Tim took great pride in their accomplishments. He enjoyed their childhood athletic endeavors even serving as their coach in flag football and soccer. He was very involved with ensuring they achieved academic success and was not afraid to push them to excel in their endeavors.

Looking forward to wed in April, 2021, Tim is survived by his fiancé and soon to be stepson, Christina Lopez and Braeden Lopez; his two sons Coby and Cameron Castro and their mother Andrea Castro; his parents Frank and Debbie Castro; his brother Joseph Castro, wife Rachel, and their children Garrett and Vivienne; his brother Daniel Castro and wife Joanne; and his brother Toby Castro. Tim is preceded in death by his grandparents Frank and Hilda Castro of Pasadena and James and Joyce Koplin of South Belt.

Big Tim was a great guy!
He lived a few houses down from me growing up and it was fun to be around him.
His dad Frankie was our baseball coach,
We never won any games but we had a blast doing it!
Big Tim and his little brother Joey were two of my favorite friends to hang out with back in the days on SouthPort Dr.
One of my favorite memories of Big Tim is when we hit the Louisiana casinos.
May God Bless Big Tim’s family during theses rough times. The Castro’s are Good People!

My deepest condolences to the Castro family and fiancé Christina. I met Timoteo in 2009 and I knew immediately we were going to be friends from day one! He had the biggest personality and heart! He was the joy in our office, our days didn’t start till Tim came in, if there came a day where he didn’t work we all complained how boring work was without his presence! He filled up every room with laughter! So many memories I have of you my friend! You will be greatly missed and never forgotten! Psalms 55:22

Tim was so genuine, funny, passionate, loved his family, sports, was wildly inquisitive & always ready to learn something new. He was also contagiously charismatic too... just writing that made me smile. I met Tim in 1998 & enjoyed working with him at Helzberg Diamonds. I admired his competitive drive to be his absolute best... and he was. But he was not only focused on excelling it was very important to him that you had a lot of fun along the way. AND with Tim he made sure there was a lot of fun! While we didn't get as much time together in recent years I looked forward to calls and the times we were able to grab dinner to catch up on family, work and what he was learning about. I always enjoyed both and that didn't happen near often enough. I will be praying for blessing, His peace & a flood of beautiful memories for the family as you walk through these days. Tim will be missed, but he will not be forgotten by this man.

My deepest condolences to Christina, her family, to the boys Cody and Cameron and to The Castro Family. My thoughts and prayers will be for All in this difficult time. Timothy, Tim, or Timoteo is what I like to call him. Tim was a genuine, kind-hearted man, best person to give his honest opinion about anything. Good music and dancing is what Tim loved to do! You'll be Missed but never forgotten. It's not goodbye, it's will see you later.

Remembering Tim will be easy because of his larger than life personality, his giving heart, and the way that he made one of my dearest friends so very happy. Tim you will forever be in the hearts of many and missed tremendously. May God’s love, understanding, grace and comfort cover the entire family during this time.

What an awesome man has been sent home to be with the lord, Tim was a gentle giant he had a comfort about him that made you immediately feel welcome, a personality that was addictive. I remember like it was yesterday us all sitting on the patio of that high rise in San Juan, laughing so hard we were crying, then laughing harder the next day. You left too soon but you left great impressions on my family and our hearts. You will for ever be remembered Tim. May the lord feel blessed to have such a great soul.
