I pray that everyone can find peace in knowing that we will see this officer as well as many others again in Paradise soon. Until then, please accept my condolences.

I knew Officer Bastock from when he did night time security work at the Giant Eagle in Stow. It was a very boring job but I was always glad when he was there because he was so great to talk to. He was funny and sarcastic but never in a mean way. He lent me his book, Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, because he knew I liked to read and thought I would enjoy it. I adored the book, it became one of my favorites and I immediately bought a copy for myself. In the almost fifteen years since I always think of Officer Bastock and remember him fondly when I come across that book on my shelf. I realize it has been several years since he passed, and I offer my belated condolences to his family in the hope that they are happy and healthy.

To those who remember my dad thank you. For him to continually be remembered makes me really happy. I do miss him a lot but it seems like he is still here somehow. And seeing the words you all say just makes sure he will be remembered as a person, not as another name on a old piece of paper. Thank you

Love you dad

It's been three years since you left this world and went to a better place. Our loss is heaven's gain. But to those of us who knew you, our world will never be the same. I miss you, my friend. Not a day passes that I don't think of you.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the first anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. . My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect and your memory will always be honored and revered. I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever. Your family is in my family's embrace today.

Rest In Peace

Jonathan,
You are standing guard at the gates of heaven with God and his son Jesus Christ. Continue to watch over your family because that bond is too strong to be broken. May God bless the Bastock family as they continue to gain strength from each other.

I come to the ODMP often to remember my late fiancé Dennis. Every time I come here it breaks my heart to know that yet another officer has fallen and that yet another family has to live their lives without the officer they loved. My heart goes out to everyone who knew and loved Officer Bastock. Know that you are not alone in the "journey" that you walk. Should you ever need anything please don't hesitate to contact me. (The Davis Co. Sheriff's Office in Iowa will always know how to reach me. I can also be found on Face Book.) You will be in my thoughts.

From reading the reflections left for Jonathon, he sounds like he was a great man with a beautiful spirit. Those of you who knew him in life were so blessed to have been able to share in it. I hope that you will all continue to find a way to celebrate and remember Jonathon's life and the MAN that he was. Remember that Jonathon's life was about so much more than the way he died. Jonathon will continue to live on as long as we continue to remember him.

Officer Bastock, thank you for helping to make this world a little safer for us all. YOU will not be forgotten. Please continue to watch over all of us as only you can. If you happen to bump into my late fiancé Dennis up there give him a big hug for me and the kids. It's been eight years and he's still very much missed and forever loved.

Wishing you brighter and better days,


Jocelyne :)
