I love and miss you so much Josh. You were more than my friend, you were my roommate and one of my absolute best friends...you were a son to me. I always looked forward to you coming home every day after work. You were a light in my life...you were my son, Jacob's best friend, you were best friends with Brandon Chandler and Nick Mora, too. They were your band mates. They will miss you deeply. The DFW music scene mourns for you. You were loved and now missed by so many...Thank you for your love, friendship and musical talent you left for the world to hear. My goal is to help the guys get your music put out. You deserve that at the very least. I never wanted you to stop being my roommate, I never wanted you to move away...I will always love you, miss you and hope to see you again one day... Rest in Peace my sweet friend.
This is how I remember Joshua Castilleja; owning the stage with passion and enthusiasm in his eyes, free, without a care in the world. I'm grateful to have shared the stage with him countless times over the years and to have had the opportunity to play with him one last time, two days before his untimely passing. An amazing guitarist, full of talent, and simply an all-around great guy with a good sense of humor and a heart of gold, his presence will be dearly missed.
