Jonathan V. Bastock
Police officers from throughout Northeast Ohio gathered on a frigid morning Wednesday to honor Stow police officer Jonathan V. Bastock.
Bastock, 47, died Saturday while recuperating at home from a work-related injury. The cause of death is being investigated.
Bastock was on a traffic stop Jan. 6 when he fell, injuring his knee. He was recovering from surgery when he died.
Stow Chief Louis A. Dirker stood in sub-zero wind chills outside Holy Family Catholic Church and remembered Bastock as a superb policeman, but was quick to honor Bastock's humor and compassion.
''Along with his great sense of humor, I don't want to say this was all work and no play with him,'' Dirker said. ''He really enjoyed what he did, he really considered [police work] an avocation.''
Dirker said Bastock was known for his ability to investigate traffic accidents.
''He was one of the co-founders of the Summit County crash team which goes around investigating fatal and personal-injury crashes throughout the county,'' he said. ''They reconstruct the scene for oth
er police departments. He was one of those guys whose knowledge of police work and techniques was encyclopedic.''
Bastock also helped found Summit County's Child Abduction Response Team

"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
