Depends on how it was started in the first place.

- If your Squid is started from /etc/inittab then you'll have to
  remove the corresponding entry from that file, otherwise the
  init process will dutifully restart it every time it exits.

- If you are using the RunCache script included with Squid, that one
  will also automatically restart Squid each time it exits, so you
  should kill that before you kill Squid.
