Christopher Casteel
Christopher Dale Casteel, 46, of Neotsu, Ore., died Dec. 16, 2012 at his home.

He was born March 10, 1966 to Diane (Justesen) Brown and Marshall Q. Casteel in Newport, Ore. He received his GED and was most proud to graduate from the Elite Truck Driving School in 2009. He was a truck driver for Dan Kauffman Excavation and drove confidently and with the utmost pride. Prior to his truck driving, Chris had been a sawyer and plant manager for the Truss Companies of Salem.

Chris was a friend to everyone – he really never met a stranger. He was very generous, and he told the best jokes and stories that would get everyone’s attention. His smile was contagious.

He was preceded in death by his dad, Marshall Casteel; paternal grandparents, Raymond and Dorrise Casteel; and maternal grandmother, Pauline (Krajeski) Flores.

He is survived by his son, Nicholas Casteel of Albany, Ore.; sister, Kelly (Pat) Monroe of Gresham; brothers, Darin (Skeeter) Brown of Youngsville, N.C. and Russell Reed of Sweet Home; grandfather, Marlen Justesen; three nephews; and one niece.

There will be a celebration of Chris’s life from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, at the Eventuary Center, 560 SW Fleet Ave. in Lincoln City.

Pacific View Memorial Chapel is handling arrangements.
