Ralph “Bill” Mastin, a long time resident of Moab, passed away July 18 in Texas due to health complications. A potluck wake will be held at the Old City Park on Aug. 17, starting after 4 p.m. Bring a dish and yourselves and celebrate his life.

Bill was born Dec. 15, 1952, to Leila Bybee and Ralph Aurther Mastin. He came to Moab in the late 1970s. Among many jobs, he was a assistant fire warden for the local fire department and an EMT. He was most known for his time as a flagger for UDOT and LeGrand Johnson.

He loved to make people smile, had a love for skulls, Dungeons and Dragons and volcanoes. He always had a smile on his face and will be greatly missed by many.

He is survived by his two daughters, Kristina Mastin (Moab), Elizabeth Mueller (Ogden); his grandchildren, Kataleena Mastin and Justin Hacker (Moab), Kandel and Andrew Mueller (Ogden); his new great-grandchild, Haiden (Ogden); and many others.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

In lieu of flowers a donation account has been set up at Eastern Utah Community Credit Union under the name of Ralph/Bill Mastin.
