Steven L. Bashaw

Steven L. BashawOur son, Steven L. Bashaw, age 53, died suddenly on April 3, 2020, while camping in the California Kern Mountains with his fiancée Tina Meldahl.

Steven found great peace in his Christianity, his love of God and his church family in so many ways. He took such pride in trimming trees for customers and friends in Ridgecrest, a skill he learned from his late brother-in-law, Dennis Wiley.

Steven had a very generous heart toward others and an amazing sense of humor. He could tell the best stories, which always brought many laughs to those who knew and loved him. Steven loved the ocean and had always hoped to get back to living near the beach.

Steven is survived by his mom, Claudia (Slater) Weber; his stepdad, Michael Weber; his three sisters, Kelly Wiley, Dorothy Bashaw (Saije) and Wendy (Bashaw) Russell; his uncle, Ken Slater; his Grandma Dorothy Slater; his daughter Summer Bashaw, and son Katin Bashaw.

Steven’s family will be planning a private Celebration of Life. We would love and invite posting any personal memories, anecdotes or condolences of Steven to legacy.com.
