Mr. Basta and the whole Basta family are a special part of my childhood memories. We were good neighbors and friends.
May the love of family and friends be a source of comfort during this time of sorrow.
May Psalms 145:18,19 bring this family comfort.
Ray worked for me in the CPD Jail Unit. Always cheerful . A very nice man
I knew Mr. Basta as a patient and also as a loving husband, father and grandfather. I'm so sorry for the loss of a kind, gentle man who had a warm sense of humor, no matter how badly he was feeling and a smile on his face ALWAYS!! Heaven definitely has gained a sweet angel!! My condolences to all of his family.
Knew Ray as a young patrolman in the third District ,a nice and honorable man.

Uncle Ray, a wonderful man and Godfather.
We have always admired Mr. Basta as being a loving father, grandfather and husband. A very honorable man who brought much joy to those who knew and loved him. May he rest in peace and may his loved ones find comfort in this.
Our loss here on earth. What a wonderful man with such a happy presence. I'm sure he is "tip top" in heaven and making all those that surround him a bit happier. Mr. Basta will be missed.
