KASTELIC and KOSTELIC are relatively common names in Slovenia and neighboring Croatia and many men with this name came to America, perhaps 4 or 5 that match the DOB and immigration date range.

The original spelling is KASTELIC with a diacritical mark v over the C giving it the sound of CH

Slovenian: from a derivative of kastel ‘(small) castle’, ‘fort’ (formed with the obsolete suffix -ic instead of standard -ec), a topographic name for someone who lived in or near a castle or a fort.
