Robert Dale Bagley

06/15/1937 - 01/11/2022
Interment: City of Mesa Cemetery

Robert Dale Bagley passed away on January 11, 2022. Dale was born in 1937 in Grants Pass, OR. He served in the US Air Force, served a 2-year mission in Guatemala for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and earned an Associates degree from Cal Poly. He loved to cook. He was a self-described “tough bastard” who loved sharing stories from his life as a meat cutter/inspector and his accomplishments as a USDA Compliance Officer (29 years of service in the Fed Govt). His greatest accomplishment was convincing Sara Sylvia Hastings to marry him in 1961. They lived in numerous areas around the country, including Southern, Central and Northern CA, Utah, Washington DC, Minneapolis, and then finally retired to Arizona in 2000. Dale and Sylvia both served in the LDS Mesa temple for many years.

Dale is preceded in death by his wife of 58-years, Sylvia, grandson Samuel, and brother Terry (Judy). He leaves 3 children: Rob, Ron (Jess), and Cammie (Rich); 7 grandchildren: Robbie, Sara (Luis), Michael (Elise), Zoë, Matilda, Lucinda and Roman; 5 great-grandchildren: Emily, Sylvia, Nixon, Crew and Jude; two brothers: Ted (Tina) and Orin (Cathy), and one sister, Pam (Stan); and two special family members: Dawn and Dan.

Due to Covid, a graveside service will be held at Mesa City cemetery Friday, January 21st at 1:30pm, for friends and family who wish to pay their respects. We ask everyone to follow Covid procedures (masks, social distancing) to respect those with medical conditions and vulnerable family members.

    We send our best wishes to the family of Dale and Sylvia Bagley. More than 45 years ago, we moved to San Luis Obispo, California and were blessed as Dale and Sylvia reached out in friendship to us. They were kind and giving. We will always remember, with fondness, our association through the years.

    Garry and Janet, my dad talked and reminisced about you during some of our last conversations. You were on my list of people to “find”. He and my mom had such fond memories of you and your family. As I was going through some old photos this past year, I came across a few. What good times. I was so little, but I remember getting together. 🙂
