Tonita Castro, ‘Dads’ and ‘Go On’ Actress, Dead at 63
R.I.P. Tonita Castro.
The TV actress died at the age of 63 on Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 8) of cancer.
Castro is best known for her series regular role on the Fox multi-camera comedy series Dads and her heavily recurring role on NBC’s single-camera comedy series Go On. She most recently did a recurring guest arc on the freshman CBS comedy Life in Pieces and guest starred in the pilot for the new Fox comedy The Grinder.
Castro came to the United States from Mexico in the late 1970s, following the death of her father, and to help support her family she took several jobs, including cleaning houses.
“We had to start from scratch,” Castro told Fox News Latino. “My mother was a widow with seven kids, and she cleaned and ironed and was proud of the honest work she did.”
R.I.P. Our thoughts go out to her family, friends and fans.
