He received many awards and medical honors, was appointed to investigative committees, published results of initiated studies, and performed countless surgeries on spine injuries and disease. Dr. Castellvi was more than just a doctor he was also a devoted dad, coaching his sons in baseball, and being an avid outdoorsman, regularly fishing both in the keys and Tampa Bay, and hunting, mostly duck, quail and deer with his sons, and brothers and friends. Recently, he found a new passion...road cycling in groups with friends but mostly with his brother, Jochi. If you asked Tony what was his biggest and best accomplishment, he would say, without hesitation, his family! His family wishes to thank the overwhelming support of their friends and suggest that any gifts or memoriams be sent to Christ the King Catholic School Scholarship Fund and FORE- the Foundation for Orthopedic Research & Education.
