Chad Everett Mastin, 42, was lost in a tragic auto accident on Saturday, May 1, 2021. He was born June 20, 1978 in Phoenix, Az. and is the youngest son of Robert Eugene Mastin II and Maura Jean (Macaraeg) Mastin.
Chad encountered some challenges in his youth but he turned his life around and spent his time with family and friends; he attended trade school and learned the electrical trade. He enjoyed helping family and friends with home renovations, various cleanup projects, and tinkering with and repairing various type of vehicles. He would shovel snow from the driveway of his neighbors, cared for his parents during the Covid pandemic and went out of his way to help other people. Chad and his son Alex engaged in healthy competitions ranging from bowling to fishing, always trying to score higher or catch the biggest fish. He enjoyed spending time with his parents and helping care for their home, hauling the heavy stuff and tending the garden with his dad. Along with bowling and fishing, he enjoyed camping and spending time outdoors, and supported the Diamondbacks and Cardinals whenever possible. He would attend the baseball games early and enjoyed catching balls and getting autographs from the players after the game.
He is survived by his daughter Ivy Lynn Jean Mastin of Phoenix, Az. and son Alex Wade Mastin of Mesa, Az.; sister Charlene Murphy and partner LeighAnn; and brothers Carl Eichorn and wife Cindy, John Mastin and wife Wendy, and Robert Mastin III and wife Rebekah along with numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins who will miss his inappropriate stories, laughter, dancing and antics.
