Longtime owner of Pasco bakery dies

The founder of Castilleja's Bakery, a long-standing Mexican bakery in Pasco, died this week.

Sebastian "Ramiro" Castilleja, 80, started the family business with his wife, Concepcion Hernandez, in 1972.

He was born in Doctor Arroyo, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, and moved in 1970 to the Tri-Cities, where they raised four children.

Castilleja was part of the group that started the Tri-Cities' first incorporated Hispanic Chamber of Commerce in 1992, according to Herald archives.

Mueller's Greenlee Funeral Home in Pasco is in charge of the funeral arrangements.
