Richard F Bastian was the son of the late Charles and Anne Bastian. He graduated from South Catholic in 1956 and Mount Saint Mary's College in 1960. After graduating, Richard served as a lieutenant in the US Navy from 1961-1964. Upon his discharge, he had a brief career working at the Government Accounting Office until 1965 when started his own company - ICS Corporation - a printing company in Philadelphia, PA. Richard continued to work there until he retired in 2000. A man of great character, Richard was admired by his employees, his customers, vendors and even his competitors.
Richard was currently a member of St Cornelius Parish. In his lifetime, you could always find him at any of his 5 children's sporting events and most recently at his 16 grandchildren's activities. During the summer, you would always find him at his home in Stone Harbor or down the beach with his family honing his body surfing, horseshoe throwing, or falling asleep in a chair skills. Although terrible, he was an avid golfer who loved to spend time on the course with his family and friends. Fortunately his lack of golfing skill was not hereditary. Richard also loved to travel with his wife and after retirement spent time with his friends in Stuart, Florida
