Alan Kaestle

February 10, 1945 — December 30, 2021

Alan Kaestle passed away on December 30, 2021 at his home in Cottonwood, Arizona at the age of 76. Alan was born in Burbank, California on February 10, 1945 to Anton and Julia Kaestle. He was the younger of two children and is survived by his sister, Julie Kaestle Black. He was proceeded in death by his wife of 43 years, Sandra Haylett Kaestle. He will be dearly missed by his three children: his daughter, Erika Kaestle (Sarah Bangs), his son, Gregory Kaestle (Alyssa Bessey), and his son Scott Kaestle, who cared for him in his final years. He was the loving grandfather of Renn Kaestle, Bailey Kaestle, Jake Kaestle and Izabella Kaestle.

 

Alan was an alumni of Burbank High School class of 1962 and graduated college from California State University Northridge. In his younger days he enjoyed trout fishing in the High Sierras, eventually settling in Sunland, California after marrying Sandra in 1972. He was actively involved at Village Christian School, where his sons attended K-12, eventually becoming President of the Booster Club where he worked tirelessly to fundraise for the school’s athletic department. Described as “very generous and very kind” by those who knew him, he even personally donated the scoreboard nameplates in the Village Christian Gym. Most importantly, he was always in the stands cheering his boys at their Volleyball and Basketball games. Alan retired as President of Servo Products in Pasadena, and he and his wife moved to Bullhead City, Arizona where he enjoyed playing the penny slots across the river in Laughlin. He last visited Burbank for his 50th High School reunion in September 2012, staying with his daughter and visiting his sister in Glendale. After his wife Sandra’s passing, he moved to Sedona and then Cottonwood, where he enjoyed his final years with his sons and granddaughters nearby. His family is grateful he’s at peace with his wife, his parents and our Lord.
