I found out today that Capt. Eddie Castellin has not been in a good way lately.
Apparently he went in to have some heart surgery (a stent put in) about a month ago, and shortly thereafter they discovered a large tumor in his brain. A blood clot caused some complications and it’s still a bit touch-and-go.
His daughter has set up a facebook page for him to track his progress if anyone’s interested
Yeah, the big guy has been a constant in my life since I started turning, and even before I got my lathe. I was always impressed that he took the time out to reply to my emails when I had silly questions and didn’t understand what was going on in the videos.
