Adrian Barragan Castellanos
Adrian Barragan Castellanos, 17, of Port Arthur, died Friday, August 13, 2021. He was born on August 18, 2003, in Fairfield, California.
Whoever knew Adrian, knew how sweet and soft spoken he was. But the love he had for his family was known. By his many hugs and meaningful “I love you”. Never was there a time he said the word, “No” when you asked him for help. He was the first to want to help in the kitchen with the prepping and cooking. High school graduate, college student with a full life ahead of him. Excited to have been accepted to Texas A&M University at Galveston to study Marine Biology. He beat cancer not once, but twice. His life cut short by a traffic accident just days from his 18th birthday. He will be forever missed but certainly not forgotten.
