Jose Marcelino Castillo Pacheco

September 29, 1987 ~ July 10, 2021 (age 33)


Jose Marcelino Castillo-Pacheco was born on September 29, 1987 in Dzan, Mexico and died on July 10, 2021 during a camping trip to Oxbow Park in Oregon. Marcel, as he went by, was known for his energetic zest for life, loved spending time with Michele and their son Knud, gardening, skateboarding, laughing with friends, and trying new adventures.  He moved from Dzan, Mexico to make a better life for himself and worked hard to help support his family. Whether it was spending time at the Oregon Coast with his mom and his son, or trying out new plant seedlings for his ever-growing garden, Marcel always put full effort into it. When Marcel found out he was going to be a father, he beamed with pride and told everyone around him. His son shares his birthday - September 29th. Watching Knud and Marcel together was like watching two best buddies who speak their own language. Knud loved every minute he was able to hang out with his dad.

Marcel will forever be in everyone's heart. Marcel estará siempre en el corazón de todos.

Marcel is survived by his mother Sofia Pacheco, brothers Elmer, Antonio and Oscar, his 8-year old son Knud and loving wife Michele Smith.
