Alumnus Dom Castillo leaves legacy

Sam White, Contributor

Polite student, baseball player, smile creator. The red dirt diamond as well as an outstanding number of people suffered a significant loss at the beginning of September.

Dominiq Castillo Porterfield (Dom), who graduated from Ocean
Lakes in 2014 and was a junior at the University of Texas San Antonio, was involved in a fatal wake boarding accident. This unfortunate curve ball stunned friends, family, teammates, and anyone who simply had the opportunity to meet Dom.
“[Dominiq] knew how to make everybody feel included and important, and that’s a rare thing,” said alumni Paige Neubauer.
With a smile that could light up a ballpark, Dominiq touched the
lives of many. If they did not know him personally, people still knew Dom for his respectful and hardworking demeanor.
Dominiq will be greatly missed and never forgotten, as he remains an eternal member of the dolphin family.
