ASKEW, DAVID  
DAVID ASKEW David Edward Askew, 78, of Las Vegas, passed away Sunday, June 28, 2015, at St. Rose Dominican Hospital-Siena Campus. He was born April 28, 1937, to Joseph Sidney Askew Jr. and Catherine Ann Flynn Askew in Oklahoma City. The family moved to Corona, Calif. when David was 10 years old. He received a B.A. in psychology from the University of San Francisco in 1966, an M.S. in clinical psychology from San Francisco State College in 1968, and a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Colorado in 1971. David worked for many years as an administrator in the state mental health systems of Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. During that time, he was a surveyor consultant for the Joint Commission and traveled to evaluate mental health facilities. In 1990, craving some sunshine, David took a position in the southern Nevada Mental Health District. David lived for 30 years with a structurally badly damaged heart after a myocardial infarction while in his 40's. He was a pioneer in pacemaker and defibrillator implantation and was on the heart transplant list until he reached age 70. Through all this, David's brave and amazing heart kept beating. It allowed him to see his children grow up, to be around for the birth of his grandchildren and to meet his wife, Jody, in 2002. David just kept going-living his life joyfully and to the fullest, from playing with his beloved dog, Sasquatch, to relaxing at the beach, to hiking the Freedom Trail in Boston, to traveling the canals of Venice, to Catamaran Cruising in the Caribbean, and dozens of other adventures. Finally, on Sunday, David's fearless heart could beat no more and he slipped into eternal rest. David was preceded in death by his parents; and sister. He is survived by his daughter, Kristin (Jeremy) Weiss of Van Nuys, Calif.; his son, Dominick (Wendy) Askew of Marina, Calif.; his grandchildren, Brandon and Cate Weiss and Quinn Askew; and his cousins, Bob, Jay and Phil and their children. He is survived by his wife, Jody, known to many as Martha Campbell, and her children, Cindy Rodriquez, Joel Campbell and Cari Campbell, all of Las Vegas. To honor David, the family wishes you a joyful life and a long gratitude list. Visitation will be 9:30-10 a.m. Tuesday, July 7, with funeral service following, both at Palm Mortuary, 6701 N. Jones Blvd., Las Vegas, NV 89131. Graveside service following at Palm Memorial Park-Northwest.

BARTONE, RICHARD  
RICHARD BARTONE Richard Charles Bartone, 55, of Las Vegas, passed away peacefully Friday, July 3, 2015, at Southern Hills Hospital after a hard-fought battle with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). He was surrounded by family and loved ones. Richard was born Oct. 28, 1959, and spent his childhood in Ashtabula, Ohio, where he developed his passion for tennis and magic. He graduated from Saint John School in 1978 and was inducted into their hall of fame in 2014. He earned a bachelors in business from Miami University of Ohio, and spent his summers performing magic at Geauga Lake Amusement Park. After college he spent two years performing with acclaimed magician André Kole, and he was always proud of having won a major magic competition over Lance Burton. Richard's magic brought him to the cruise industry, and he spent the next five years of his life working primarily for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity as both a magician and cruise director. He then moved to Los Angeles and founded Cruise Collection, a travel agency focused exclusively on cruise travel. His passion for magic never subsided and he won the Masters Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts and joined the Magic Castle in Hollywood in 1991, to which he was a member for the rest of his life. Richard had an entrepreneurial spirit and was an artist at fostering relationships and organizing complex business relationships. He was very proud to have been at the forefront of bringing cartoon characters to the cruise industry. Richard was the exclusive agent between Warner Brothers and Big Red Boat (later Disney Cruise Line) and brought Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny to Premier Cruises. He was similarly integral in bringing Hanna Barbara characters like the Flintstones and the Jetsons to the cruise lines. Also, Richard drew on his passion for fine art to help facilitate a deal that brought Christie's auctions to the cruising world. In the late 90's, Richard became a director at Cheaptickets.com and then a vice president at Travelscape/Expedia, which is what first brought him to Las Vegas. In 2000, Richard moved to London to work as head of travel for British Telecom-BT, the UK's largest telecom organization. He spent four years living in London and traveling extensively in Europe, and then returned to Las Vegas in 2004 with the intention of retiring. He met the love of his life Alejandra shortly after returning to Las Vegas. Having settled down for the first time, Richard rekindled his love of tennis and co-captained teams at both the Stirling Club at Turnberry and the Red Rock Country Club. In addition he became certified as an umpire for the Nevada Tennis Association and the USTA. He umpired on the collegiate level and for special tournaments, both locally and throughout the country. In 2008, Richard decided to leave retirement in order to start a career as a financial advisor at Merrill Lynch. He graduated from the trainee PMD program in the top one percent of his class nationally and ultimately became a senior wealth management advisor. He thrived at Merrill where he continually received accolades and awards, among them "The Heart of the Bull," which acknowledged his incredible human touch with both clients and coworkers. Richard was unbelievably tenacious, and he truly believed there was nothing he couldn't accomplish. He was determined to beat his CLL and for a certain period of time he thought that he had, thanks to Dr. Michael Keating at MD Anderson in Houston and Dr. John Byrd at Ohio State. The happiest moment of his life and his greatest accomplishment was the birth of his son Lorenzo Donatello Bartone in 2012. Richard was a funny, gregarious, creative, humble and loving singular light that shone brightly in a dark crowded room. In addition to his wife and son Alejandra and Lorenzo Bartone, he is survived by his parents, Donald and Norma Bartone, his sister, Carol Pawuk, and several other fortunate souls that were blessed to call Richard family including Greg, Jeremy, Gabriel, & Sylvia Rassen, Rebecca & Elizabeth Bartone, Adriana, Darin, Alexandria, and Samantha McCormick, and Kiara & Brandon Rayls. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to The James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute to honor Richard's legacy. A check made payable to OSU Foundation may be mailed to P.O. Box 183112, Columbus, OH 43218-3112. Viewing will be 4-7 p.m. Wednesday, July 8. Services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, July 9, both at Palm Mortuary-Northwest, 6701 N. Jones Blvd. Reception will follow services.
