David Squire Bastian
1944 ~ 2016
Our wonderful and precious brother, David Squire Bastian, passed away on April 9, 2016, at his home in Midvale, UT. He was the son of Elmer P. Bastian and Margaret Squire Bastian, and the brother of Mary Bastian and Emily Bastian Markham. David was born August 11, 1944. David died of complications from Parkinson's disease with Lewy body dementia.
He graduated from Jordan High School in 1962. He was a farmer and rancher his entire life. With only a few exceptions, he loved every minute of his profession. He did spend time in the military and always said this would have been his next choice as a career. David was rich in friends, loved by his family, and he valued everyone. He had a kind and gentle spirit.
The Bastian family would like to give special thanks to Doug Young, Richard Day and the Squire family for their help during this difficult time. No flowers please. Give to your favorite charity or Parkinson's Research if so inclined.
Graveside services will be held Wednesday, April 13, at 11:30 a.m. at the West Jordan City Cemetery, 7800 S. 1300 W. There will be a short viewing Wednesday from 10-11 a.m. for family and friends at Goff Mortuary, 8090 S. State St., Midvale. www.goffmortuary.com

The loss of David is a loss to all of us. He was a great example of what we should strive to be in our own lives. He was kind, understanding and lived his life doing what he loved and in so doing created an example for us all.
I remember seeing a picture of Dave driving a tractor at about age six. This gave his family great pride, especially his dad. He seldom got out of that seat.
The one time he did take a break was when he spent some time at Fort Lewis Washington while serving in the Army. I was there at the same time and we were able to spend a little time together. It was quite a coincidence but something we did share and enjoy.
Our world is better because of people like David. Thank you Dave and God bless you. I know he does.

Your cousin, Harvey

I do not know Mr. Bastian; however, my father died of complications related to Parkinson's Disease five years ago today. He fought the good fight like I am sure David did. If anything, help support the APDA program at the University of Utah. They were able to add five more years to my fathers life and he died with dignity. Rest in peace Mr. Bastian.

Rest in peace Dave. You've always been a thoughtful ear and have given Todd and I some sound advice. Although we have been out of the state for a few years you have been in our thoughts. Until we meet again.

I got to know David when he came to my father's barber shop in Midvale. He was a very nice and generous man. He allowed my father and I to hunt Doves on his farm/ranch for several years. I am very sorry to learn of his passing the world needs more men like him. May he rest in peace.
