Arthur “Castro” Vigil, a former city councilor who battled cancer and other health issues over the last few years, has died. He was 69.
Vigil died Monday of natural causes, said his son, Glenn. Though his cancer had gone into remission, it returned, and he was undergoing treatments. His son said Vigil also suffered from diabetes.
Vigil served on the Las Vegas City Council for 12 years, though not consecutively. He was first elected in 1986. He lost his bid for a fourth council term in 2006 to Morris Madrid.
