Obituary of Freddie Eugene Castle
Freddie Eugene Castle, 89, of Louisa Kentucky, went peacefully to be with the Lord on Saturday, March 26, 2022 at Kings Daughters Medical Center. He is survived by his wife, Frances Miller Castle; two daughters: Angela (Paul) Hayes and Anita (Vernon) Evans; four grandchildren: Josh Cantrell, Daniel Cantrell, Benjamin Hayes, and Andrew Hayes; and countless friends and neighbors.
He is preceded in death by his parents Fred and Virgie Hannah Castle as well as seven siblings, Carmie Hayes, Dorothy Moore, Daisy Castle, Hesie Dean Castle, Edford Cassell, Elcannah Castle, and Elwood Castle.
Freddie was born August 2, 1932. He said “I do” to the love of his life 66 years ago on Christmas Eve, 1955. Freddie became a member of Belles Chapel Freewill Baptist Church 71 years ago in July of 1950, and maintained perfect Sunday School attendance for 26 years from 1941-1967. He and his wife attended Charley Freewill Baptist Church until his disability. Freddie was a long-standing member of the Lawrence County Kentucky Farm Bureau and served as a director for over 50 years. In 1959, Freddie became a member of the Chandlersville Masonic Lodge #858, serving for 63 years.
In his younger years, Freddie was a farmer and sold milk from his dairy barn. Later in life, he worked for the Kentucky/West Virginia Gas Company, then eventually retired from the Kentucky May Coal Company. After retirement, Freddie continued his love for raising animals and farming until the day of his death. Two of his favorite animals predeceased him: his dog Rex and lifelong horse Charlie. Freddie famously told Charlie “the only thing that will separate us is death.” There was nothing Freddie liked more than driving his tractor and staring at his cattle for hours.
Freddie will be missed by his family, friends, and the entire community.
