AUBURN | Carl R. Castiglione “Cast Iron,” 77, of Auburn, went to be with his Lord and Savior, Sunday, May 17, 2020, at 1:27 a.m. due to a serious illness.
He was born on Dec. 30, 1942, to John and Christine (Iacovino) Castiglione. Carl began his career as an apprentice plumber with his father’s business Casty’s Plumbing and Heating. He then went on to become a master plumber with the Local 73 Plumbers and Pipefitters Union in Oswego and worked 30 years until his retirement. He then worked as a Code Plumbing Inspector for the city of Auburn for 14 years before retiring in 2018. Carl married his grade school sweetheart, Marilyn (Amoia) Castiglione, and would have celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary in July.
