Celestino worked as a farmer all his life until he retired in 2015. He enjoyed listening to and recording Christian music, fishing, collecting guns, watching cowboys, woodworking, and keeping his yard and plants looking beautiful year-round. He was dedicated to the Cursillo Movement, a Minister of Communion at St. Anthonys Catholic Church, and the Ministry for the prison.
