Richard “Park” Casto, age 34, passed away at home unexpectedly, on Aug 2, 2019, due to complications of Epilepsy.  He was born April 27, 1985 in Great Falls, Montana, to Melody (Dan) Sutter and Richard E. Casto Jr.  Park wore many hats, both literally and figuratively.  Of all of the hats that he was known to wear, the only one more precious than his plaid hat was his “dad hat.”  Park was a fun-loving, caring, wonderful father to his two beautiful daughters, Emma Pierce, and Danica Mutchler.  Park was called “Bubba” by his nieces who he affectionately nicknamed Melody “Gabby” Casto and Gwendolyn “GoGo” Clark. They will miss him dearly.  In addition to his children and nieces he is survived by his parents and siblings, Jennifer (Rob) Casto, Robin (Bob) Casto, Amorette (James) Holmes, Krystal (Dan) Snead, Anna McClain, Jeff (Annie) Sutter, Andrew and Thaddeous Sutter, along with close friends, Dan Negus and Corey Slama.  He was proceeded in death by his grandparents, Robert and Olive Moore and his uncle, Calvin Phillips.  Park was employed as a cook at Mario’s Mexican Restaurant in Adrian.  When he wasn’t working he enjoyed disc golf, making tacos, and taking all his girls to play Pokeman’ Go. Park loved spending time with his family. He was always up for a trip to Cedar Point, or anything that involved getting the family together for some fun.  A Memorial Visitation will take place at J. Gilbert Purse Funeral Home, 2959 N. Adrian Hwy, Adrian MI on  Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 from 12:00 PM -3:00 PM.  A luncheon will follow at the Adrian Eagles 2570 W. Beecher St., Adrian, MI 49221.
