Jimmy Castillo, Managing Director

Jimmy Castillo has been in the funeral business since the young age 14. A life long resident of New Braunfels he aspired to enter funeral service during his years in school to better prepare himself for this endeavor. Upon graduating from New Braunfels High School he entered mortuary school in San Antonio and earned his Associates Degree in Mortuary Science. He worked during college for a couple of very well established funeral homes and learned from some of the best funeral directors and embalmers in the industry. After working for two local family owned firms in New Braunfels he chose to open a monument business and named it Heritage Memorials. Upon meeting Rick Robles from Del Rio, Texas around 2004 they both embarked on the possiblility of providing funeral services in New Braunfels. In December of 2015 Sunset Memorial Oaks Funeral Home was opened and Jimmy has been the managing director of the Sunset location here in New Braunfels. An active member of Holy Family Catholic Church, Jimmy feels honored to serve the New Braunfels and surrounding community. He and his wife Dolores plan to remain in New Braunfels to take care of the needs of his beloved New Braunfels.

Her love of service is what drives her to do funeral pre planning.
“There is something really sweet about sitting down with someone as they contemplate their final days. Most of the people I meet with want to leave a pre-paid plan in place for their children so the kids don’t have to worry or stress about what mom or dad wanted for their funeral services. Pre planning your funeral is the final gift of love we can give to our families”.
Anita is the happy Mom to 4 grown children, 19 grandchildren and soon to be a great Grandma! Come see her to visit about pre planning your services!
