Tony was born on November 1, 1960 to the late Louis and Genevie Kastl in El Reno, Oklahoma. One sister, Brenda Smith, also preceded him in death.
Tony is survived by his three children: James Brandon Kastl, Katherine Nicole Kastl, Andrew Forrest Kastl; three sisters: Wynona Blake and her husband Richard, Carolyn Weaver and her husband Jim, Catherine Meyer and her husband Donald; two brothers: Kenneth Kastl and his wife Beth and Phillip Kastl and his wife Delois. Additionally countless nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and coworkers, survive Tony.
Tony was an airplane sheet metal mechanic at Tinker Air Force Base for many years before retiring in 2014. He loved the game of baseball and was an umpire for over 10 years.
His hobbies included spending time with his high school classmates, watching old western movies, building model and remote control cars and airplanes and loved a great conversation and a good laugh. Tony was always up to trying new foods and new experiences and knew his way around Yukon better than most people.
Tony’s family would like to thank the staff at Integris Hospice House, the staff at Integris Cancer Institute, especially Dr. Romeo Mandanas and his nurse Barbara Underwood, the staff at Integris Baptist Ultrasound and Outpatient departments for their show of love and support for Tony and all of his family.
A big thank you to the YHS Class of ’78 for supporting Tony for the last 5 years!

Tony, it was an honor and privilege to have been one of your Angel’s, and to have been able to bring you dinner on several occasions. I will miss those times, but I know I will see you soon.
I love you Buddy, from the baby of the bunch.

Janell Huber Fields says
My heart is breaking still but filled with comfort for many reasons. Most joy from knowing his pain has come to a hault. Ecstatic knowing that his grin is ear to ear being in the presence of Jesus. Peace and contentment that we were able to talk on numerous occasions about everything that we needed to…and knowing God’s plan was in motion all along. Love you Tony…prayers for your family.
Jeanie Halstead says
I am so saddened by the news of Tony. He was a wonderful friend and bowling buddy of my husband Kenny, who also passed away recently. Tony always told me “to take care of his buddy”. I know they are both Angels and meeting at the bowling alley in heaven. He was very special to us. Prayers to the family.
Joseph and Carmen Harder says
