Alejandro Francisco Castro, also known as Alex or Sondor passed away on July 29, 2020 at Seasons Nursing Home in Stow due to Colon Cancer. Alex was born February 19, 1963 in Ravenna, Ohio to Alejo Castro Sierra and Helen Demchak. He is survived by his sister Mary Helen Castro of Madison, Wisconsin and his godmother/cousin Johnna Dreher of Elk Grove, California. Alex resided in Portage County since birth. He suffered from Schizophrenia during his adult life. He was fortunate to have received significant support and understanding both from formal organizations and from numerous individuals, who provided him with friendship and transportation. Memorial services are suspended until the pandemic has passed and it is safe to gather in large groups. Alex will be laid to rest next to his maternal grandmother or nagymama, Mary Medvig Demchak at Fairview Cemetery in Hiram. A memorial service at the Shrine of the Weeping Madonna of Mariapoch in Burton is planned for a date to be announced. Instead of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to Coleman Professional Services, Shine of the Weeping Madonna of Mariapoch or the Cancer Research Institute. Arrangements are by the Green Family Funeral Home & Crematory Service in Mantua where condolences and memories may be viewed at www.greenfamilyfuneralhome.com.
