Jonathan V. Bastock

Officer Jonathan Bastock passed away from complications of an on-duty injury he sustained one month earlier.

He had responded to a call involving a person driving erratically in a parking lot. He had stopped the vehicle and as he approached the rear of it to obtain the license plate number, he slipped on ice and fell, severely injuring his knee. The injury caused him to go out on medical leave. He was recovering at home when he passed away as the result of a blood clot that broke free from the injury.

Officer Bastock had served as a full-time officer with the Stow Police Department for 12 years and had previously served as a reserve officer for five years. He is survived by his wife and three children.

11 years later and Glenn and I miss you and think of you often- That's what happens when God puts an INCREDIBLE friend in your life - and that you were! Donna, if you or the children read this and ever need anything please feel free to reach out to us- Altho we only met at the funeral briefly we grew up with Jonathan at the Cathedral and loved his family- I actually joined SCSO recently and one of the main reasons was I wanted to make a difference like Jonathan did- You are missed my friend -
