Gordon Castor

Born near Chicago, IL, to Maud Castor, Dr. Castor, age 60, died from complications related to lung cancer at Holzers Hospital. Internment was held at Kirkland Memorial Gardens, Point Pleasant, WV.

At age 3, he was living in Akron, OH, with his parents and sisters. His father died in Cass Co, IN, when he was ten years old, and he lived with the Benton family of Savannah, Ashland Co, OH.

He graduated on May 7, 1926 from Savannah High School, and in the 1930 census he was living in Clear Creek, Ashland Co, OH, at the age of 22, with his 2nd cousin, Carey Boyd and wife, Maude.

Earning his way through college while working in the OSU school cafeteria, he received his degree in 1931 from The Ohio State University, Columbus, Franklin Co, OH, School of Veterinarian Medicine/Gamma Chap of Omega Tau Sigma. With a practice dealing largely with farm animals, he often received payment for services with local produce.
