Shayne Bruce Castellani

God decided He needed another angel in his garden. He looked down upon the Earth to find a special, wonderful, faithful person to be his next chosen angel. Shayne Castellani was God's choice to join Him in heaven on Sunday, June 12, 2011. Shayne was born in Hawthorne, Nev., on Oct. 3, 1948. He was 62 years old.

Shayne honorably served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War. Shayne was a roofer for many years. He then switched careers and worked as an operations technician for the Mineral Park Mine located in Kingman for six years.

Shayne loved his home, his family and his five cats and dog. His favorite hobby was working in his beautiful flower gardens.

His father, Peter Joseph Castellani, his grandmother, Madelon Tackett, and stepdaughter, Tammy Lee McCart, preceded Shayne in death.

He leaves behind his wife, soulmate and best friend of 23 years, Jackie Faye Castellani; son, Peter Shayne Castellani; his daughter-in-law, Maggie Castellani; his daughter, Sharyn Marie McDermaid; son-in-law, Todd McDermaid; his mother, Madelon Blumlien, his twin sister, Sharyn Lou Parillo; brother, Byron Castellani; and stepsons, Frankie Ronald Sutter and Robert Allen Cota. He also leaves grandsons Adam McKeehan, Alec McKeehan, Tyler Castellani, Zachary Castellani, Sam McQueen, Josh McDermaid, Frank Sutter Jr. and Justin Angel McCart; granddaughters, Hayley Cota, Eioleen Marisa Rodriguez, Lindsey Gonzales, Ashly Sutter and Chelsea O'Neil; great-grandson, Merrick Gonzales; aunt, Patty Lou Duncan; nieces, Paula, Mattie, Gina, Kendra and Nickki; and many cousins and friends. All who met Shayne and got to know him loved him. He will be greatly missed.

Memorial services will be at noon Saturday, June 25, at Trinity Episcopal Church, 424 E. Spring St., in downtown Kingman.
