David A. Castro

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the death of David A. Castro Bosbach on November 8, 2022, at the age of 43, leaving to mourn family and friends. David was born on July 27th, 1979, to Dolores Bosbach-Castro and Ernesto Castro in San Salvador, El Salvador.

David and his family moved to Kansas in 1981, later settling in Wisconsin where he graduated from Brookfield Central High School.  He began his college education at the University of Wisconsin – Madison later earning his Bachelor’s degree in Human Resource Management from Upper Iowa University in 2019.  While attending UW-Madison, David was very involved with his fraternity, Delta Theta Sigma holding positions as its President and the President of the Interfraternity Council.  He stayed involved as an alumnus, and eventually became the National Fraternity President.

While working on his studies, David worked in retail, and in 2008 began working evenings at UPS as a part time package handler at the Oak Creek facility.  He would say it was better to be earning money working out as a UPS loader than paying a gym.  From there, he started moving upward until he became a Human Resource Area Supervisor in 2016. Earlier this year he took a position in Orlando, FL where he was realizing one of his dreams to be near the ocean and enjoy the Florida outdoors.

David once wrote in his career paper: “I enjoy every aspect of my job from mentoring employees, interacting with customers, and making the tough decisions…I decided not only to say this was my career; I was going to be the very best at what I do.” His dedication to his career showed all the way to the end.  He passed away in his office from a pulmonary embolism after recovering from a muscle injury.

David was creative and had many passions including his love for the Denver Broncos, Magic the Gathering, 80’s & 90s’ comedy shows, movies, politics, Real-Time Strategy video games, Star Wars, Tae Kwon Do and stocks.  As an Ape, he was a proud stock owner of AMC Theatres.  His passion for cards drove him to start his own business called Card Cow Gaming.  He worked his day job and would come home and work on his business incorporating a medieval story with his star character Remi.  Including his love for animals, he enjoyed the beaches and the great outdoors.  He was full of dreams, enjoying life, and working hard to fulfill his goals.

What defined David was that he cared about people.  He wanted his co-workers and the people that he had hired to succeed and took every opportunity he had to mentor them. He brought that same positive attitude to family and friends, always encouraging others to achieve their goals.  David’s optimism and lust for life brought joy to everyone around him.   He never forgot his origins.  After El Salvador was struck by a hurricane and struggling through Covid, he donated to those less fortunate.

He leaves to cherish his memory: his spouse, Joe Allen; his parents, Dolores and Ernesto; two brothers, Frank Castro, Robert and wife Anna Castro; and many other family members and friends who he held very dear to his heart.

We welcome all to his funeral services and visitation this Saturday November 19th at Holy Apostles Catholic Church (16000 W National Ave New Berlin, WI 53151).  Visitation will be held at 11:30 a.m. central time followed by Mass of Christian Burial at 1:00 pm central time.   The service will be live streamed by Holy Apostles.  A luncheon will be held following the funeral services in the basement of the church for those who wish to attend.  Burial to be held at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers please consider donating in his name to Save The Children.

    Mi corazon esta roto en mil pedacitos con su partida pero segura que esta feliz descansando en los brazos del Señor y satisfecho del legado que dejo aqui en la tierra.
    Que Dios le conceda a mis hermanos Dolores y Neto y mis sobrinos Roberto y Frank el consuelo y fortaleza para mitigar su dolor

    Titi y Loli, las palabras no son suficiente consuelo para mitigar su dolor por la partida de David, pero si puedo decirles que los recuerdos son una gran ayuda para aminorar un poco ese dolor. Les mando todo mi amor, lamentando mucho no poder estar físicamente con ustedes.

    I agree with the words of Carmen Aida, there are no words of comfort to mitigate this strong pain suffered by the family. I pray to God to give my uncles (Neto and Loly) and cousins ​​(Roberto and Frank) resignation and strength. I wish I could have been with you physically but I was with my heart. A big hug to everyone

    We waited until he left the office the day before his birthday and decorated his office for which he was surprised when he showed up the next morning. After lunch we sang him happy birthday and got him a cake. He recorded it and its on his link in page. He stated that it was the 1st time he celebrated his birthday this way at work.

    We also celebrated many other 1st including him having chick-fil-A for the 1st time two weekends ago.. We surprise him at his booth during pride and purchase some of the items he crecated under Mad Cow Gaming.

    We had many conversations during that day and he stated that he enjoyed the Team he currently works. He was also very excited about MegaCon. I said good night to him and he said ‘ see you tomorrow”

    David was a great Supervisor, caring, hard working and Smart..

    As we celebrate his extraordinary life, he will remain in our Hearts and prayers.

    Se apagó una estrella en la vida familiar para encenderse en la eterna presencia del Señor. Le dedicamos una plegaria y que su dulce recuerdo nos acompañe siempre.
