Lloyd L. Casteel, 87, passed away peacefully on March 11, 2020 at Spurgeon Manor, Dallas Center, IA where he had lived since June, 2019. Memorial services are pending.

Lloyd Lester Casteel was born September 12, 1932 in Dubuque, IA to Kenneth and Bernice (Clemons) Casteel. After graduation from high school in Omaha, NE, he honorably served his country as a U.S. Marine during the Korean Conflict, discharging in 1954 with the rank of sergeant and a Purple Heart. While in the service he met Maine native, Bernice Clemen, in Washington, D.C., and they were married on June 25, 1953.

After the service, Lloyd and Bernice made their home in Omaha then later Missouri Valley, IA. Lloyd completed refrigeration technical school, and worked as a steamfitter for Steamfitters Local 464, retiring after many years at Grunwald Mechanical Contractors and Engineers in Omaha.

Proudly, Lloyd built the family home in Missouri Valley and enjoyed working on continual improvements. He was a hunter, avid gun collector and member of the NRA. He liked music and will be remembered for his quick humor and determined nature.

As a devoted family man, Lloyd’s memory will be treasured by his wife of 66 years, Rose; three children, Denise (Terry) Anderson of Waukee, Dennis (Sue) Casteel of Upperco, MD and Tim (Sally) Casteel of Missouri Valley; daughter-in-law, Teressa Casteel of Stroudsburg, PA; three grandsons, Ross (Ashley) Casteel and Donnie and Kenny Anderson; great grandson, Caleb Casteel; and brother, Duane Casteel. He was preceded in death by his parents and his son, Brian.
