Charles Craig Bastian

January 5, 1956 ~ April 30, 2014

In nineteen fifty six, on January fifth, Sharon Trolson was given a gift. Charles Craig Bastian was born with a smile, although the labor had taken a while. He grew up fast, with wit and with charm, just with his words; he could twist anyone's arm.

An avid fisherman, catching more than his share, he'd drop his line in, pulling trout like a bear. Pool stick in hand, taking Utah by storm, hundreds of trophies on shelves were adorned. He served in the Army, during the time of Vietnam, always sending postcards back home to his mom.


He'd pick up a guitar and play a sweet song, learning by ear didn't take him too long. Brains of a genius, he could do anything, from fixing computers to making stereos sing.

Leaving behind saddened family and friends, on the thirtieth of April, his earth journey would end. As we celebrate his life with smiles and fun, we welcome you to join us June 7th at one. We'll eat lots of food, and share a story or two, please RSVP, we'd love to see you.

Call Tana Rae at the number below, for address, directions, and to say if you'll go.

We love you daddy, rest in peace and in love, please bless this wake and watch us from above.
