“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

With great sadness, we commemorate the life of SN Sergio A. Barrios Castellanos, who tragically passed away at the age of 30 in a motorcycle accident on October 10, 2022. He was the cherished spouse of Paola A. Baldomar Beltran. At the time of his untimely passing, Sergio left behind his nearly two-month-old daughter, Esmi A. 

Barrios. Sergio immigrated from Guatemala City, Guatemala, arriving in the United States at the age of 12.

Serving his nation with honor, Sergio dedicated himself as a Logistics Specialist in the US Navy. He found immense pleasure in exploring new destinations, sampling diverse cuisines, engaging in soccer matches, maintaining his fitness at the gym, indulging in runs, and relishing family strolls. Sergio's gentle nature, infectious laughter, and quick wit are profoundly missed by his loved ones. The void left by his absence is immense, and our hearts ache with the overwhelming love and longing we feel for him.
