Abele James Castillo- Rinaldi blessed this world with his light on July 8, 2014. His short but purposeful journey came to a peaceful end on March 24, 2021. Abele endured a rare condition called Infantile Neuroaxonal Dystrophy. He is proceeded in Death by his big sister Racquelle, who passed from the same condition five years ago. Though the ailments he suffered were crippling, he had this bright, strong and spicy personality. A personality that was like a magnet, pulling everyone in, leaving you with a piece of his light.
Abele loved music, the warm sun, bubbles, giraffes, firetrucks, basketball, rolling his eyes and anything with sugar. He was very social and liked everyone he met. His unique, fun sense of humor was hard to hide, with his old man belly chuckle, that was contagious and will be missed greatly.
Abele(6) is survived by his parents Heather, Terry and Tamiqua, his siblings Gabriel (15) and Michael (10) Matthew(15) Kara(13) and Kayden(12); Grandparents John and Susan Rinaldi of Bernalillo, NM; Grandparents Richard and Karrie Guzman of Albuquerque, NM; Great Grandmother, Doris Karpa of Alberta, Canada; Grandfather Gary Stowell and Great Grandmother Anna Maria Stowell of Huntington Beach, CA; Grandmother Tammy Price and Great grandmother Marquitta Wall Hudson of Logan, NM. His very large loving family and friends will all miss him dearly.
