A Going Home Celebration for both Metz and his wife Barbaras life will be held at 7 P.M., October 30, at the Galbreaith-Pickard Funeral Chapel, 913 N. Elm Street, in Weatherford.
Metz was born July 16, 1929 in Rush Springs, Oklahoma one of 13 children born to Olva and Lena Castleberry. Metz enjoyed Blue Grass music and was an accomplished artist and sculptor. He owned a bronze casting foundry in Weatherford for many years. He was a member of the local AA for 42 years. Most of all, Metz will be remembered as a mentor to all.
Metz is survived by his children, John Castleberry of Arkansas, Martha (Ken Graber) Stinnett of Palo Pinto, Texas, and Janis (Gary) Menix of Weatherford, Texas; seven grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and by many special friends.
In addition to his parents, Metz was preceded in death by his wife, of 40 years, Barbara; and by 11 brothers and one sister.
As Metz would say, donate your love and time to your family. Donations can be made to your local humane society of a charity of your choice.
