Louis Castronova Obituary

Louis Castronova, 66, of Ossining, NY, died after a long courageous 20 year battle with cancer on February 20th, 2024. A man full of life, who loved his family, community, sports, coaching, and so much more. He was a man of conviction, determination, and relentless positivity.

Lou was born in New York City in 1957 to Felix and Patricia Castronova, who raised two strong and loving children including Lou’s sister Dory. Despite their age difference Lou and Dory were best friends and always helped each other navigate through life’s challenges. He attended high school in Palisades Park, New Jersey where he established strong roots and friendships before joining the United States Navy in 1979. 

After an honorable discharge from the Navy, Lou turned his passion for cars and people into a career in automotive sales and management. Lou managed car dealerships for many years in both Westchester County and New York City before retiring due to illness.

Lou met the love of his life, Robin in 1983 at her sister’s birthday party and they were inseparable ever since. Excited to start their lives together, the two were married on October 11th, 1987 and started their family shortly after. Lou’s son Jared and daughter Leah gave him purpose and joy. He was truly meant to be a father, attending every sports game, coaching them through all moments big and small, and instilling that same values and determination he embodied.

Though he loved being a husband, father, and coach, Lou’s favorite role of all was becoming a grandparent. He treasured every moment he shared with his grandson Noah and loved being his Papa, never failing to make him laugh or share a big bowl of pasta together.

A pillar in our local community, Lou was an active member of the American Legion, devoted much of his time and energy to improving policy in our town, and played an active role in local youth sports for much of his adult life. Lou also loved to help others and through his experience with illness always strived to help those in similar situations. He was active in support groups and extended that support to others in our community as well. 

Everyone who knew Lou knew how much he loved his beloved Mets and we would be remiss if we didn't recall the many amazing memories that the game of baseball brought him, from attending the ‘86 World Series, to countless games with friends and family. A day at the ball field was always a day well spent and to Lou nothing could be better.

Lou will always be remembered for his infectious personality and the way that he made everyone in his life feel loved and supported. We couldn’t have asked for a better husband, father, brother, uncle, or grandfather and will miss him every day. Lou was one of a kind. He had an unforgettable smile and spirit that will live on in the hearts of all who loved him.

Louis is survived by his wife Robin, children Jared and Leah, grandson Noah, sister Dory, nephew Ford, son in law Matthew, daughter in law Ashley, and his beloved four-legged companion Scooby.
