Ramiro ‘Chocolatín’ Castillo was, is, and will continue to be remembered as one of the best players that Bolivia could give birth to. This Tuesday, October 18, the dark date of 1997 is remembered, when he decided to take his own life.

A most excellent player, and a loving father. As is known, “Chocolatín” fell into a very severe depression after the death of his son José Manuel from hepatitis, which was the reason for his decision.

The one born in Coripata moved the national sports world at that time, so much so that the Bolivian Football Federation declared 30 days of mourning and suspended the classic between Bolívar and The Strongest, which was to be played the next day.

Ramiro played his last match on October 12, 1997, for the Bolivian national team against Ecuador, for the 1998 World Cup Qualifiers in France, and dazzled the eyes of those who could see him play throughout his career.

Castillo played in The Strongest and Bolívar in the country, but he also had great steps for Instituto de Córdoba, Argentinos Juniors, River Plate, Rosario Central, and Platense de Argentina, in addition to Chilean Everton.
