John T. Bass (Picture included)
Decmeber 31, 1936 ? April 12, 2019

Deacon John Thomas Bass was born in Hillsboro, N.C. to the late Lewis W. Bass and the late Vergie Torain Bass on December 31, 1936. Following a lengthy illness, he transitioned to eternal rest on April 12, 2019.

John Bass was educated in the Orange County School System, attending and graduating from Central High School, Hillsboro, North Carolina on May 31, 1956. He received several certificates from classes he attended.

John Accepted the Lord at an early age and joined Glenn's Grove Missionary Baptist Church, where he faithfully worked and served the Lord. John moved to Baltimore, Maryland after graduating from high school. He joined the New Psalmist Baptist Church, and served on the Ushers Ministry until he moved his membership and joined Isaiah Baptist Church, Monkton, Maryland in May 1994, under the leadership of the late Dr. John Carter. There he served on the Ushers Ministry. Years later he joined Concord Baptist Church on October 5, 1999, under the leadership of Dr. Matthew Jones. There he worked faithfully serving with the Layman's League, the Ushers Ministry and the Deacon Family Ministry. He would assist in the church wherever needed. He was also very involved in Community Affairs.

John was employed by United Parcel Service (UPS) as a truck driver for 37 years until his retirement. He enjoyed traveling, eating good food, cruising in and out of the country and playing tennis in his younger years. He enjoyed manicuring his yard and flowers as well as other people's lawns until his health declined. John loved the Lord and doing the work of the Lord. He loved his Pastor and Church Family. John was a true soldier of the Lord that never met a stranger.

Doris E. Bassett

Doris E. Bassett Known as Dory to her friends, died on July 5, 2010 after being stricken suddenly a few days earlier. She was preceded in death in 1999 by her husband, Edward Charles Bassett, renowned architect. Dory was born December 30, 1921, in Lansing, Michigan. During World War II she served our country as a Com Sergeant in the WACs in Manchester, NH. The couple moved to Mill Valley in 1965 and settled on Lovell Avenue, where they raised their four children. Dory was a Lifetime Member of the Outdoor Art Club (since 1969), and single-handedly achieved Historic Landmark designation for its Bernard Maybeck building. She also served on the Mill Valley Planning Commission. Dory was an enthusiastic and unstoppable force. From time to time she would take the lead in local politics and once organized an effort to defeat a proposal by the Mill Valley Art Commission to erect what she regarded as an unfittingly designed fountain in the plaza. To this day the plaza remains dry. Never one to shy away from controversy, she would on occasion fly the American flag upside down when George W. Bush committed a transgression particularly offensive to her. Fiercely independent and plain-spoken, she often railed against the IRS and would, no doubt, wax triumphant that in the end she outsmarted the tax man by dying in the only year when there is no estate tax. Dory is survived by her children, ANN BASSETT WHEELOCK, JOSEPH ANTOINE BASSETT, and PETER NEWTON BASSETT, all of Mill Valley; and her daughter CHRISTINE CARLISLE BASSETT of Lynn, Massachusetts; her grandchildren, GRAHAM BASSETT WHEELOCK, KATHERINE BUCHANAN WHEELOCK, and ANTHONY EDWARD CHARLES BASSETT; and her sister, DAWN BOWER, of Loveland, CO. Dory detested sappy obituaries. She was adamant that there would be no funeral or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to her favorite charities: The Redwoods and the Mill Valley Library.

A.S. Bass

A.S. Bass, postmaster, depot agent and storekeeper, Devereaux, Hancock Co., Ga, a station on the Macon and Augusta railway, in the western part of the county. Mr. Bass comes from good old Virginia stock, from which state his grandfather, Edmund Bass, emigrated when in his teens. Mr. Bass' father married a Miss Ingram, and settled in the western part of the county, where he reared a family of four sons and five daughters: Milton, married Ann Culver, a sister of Hardy C., whose family is mentioned elsewhere, and became the father of the following children: Ann E., Mrs. Wm. Coleman, Deveareaux; W. H., Macon; A. S., the subject of this sketch; Carrie G, widow of J. W. Mote, Devereaux; George E., private Company K, Fifteenth Georgia regiment, wounded and captured at Gettysburg, died in a Federal prison; Wesley A., planter near Devereaux; Hardy W., Baldwin county; Mary J., deceased; Sallie E.; Mrs. Wm. Brown, Devereaux; Mattie L., Mrs. F. A. Hall, Milledgeville. Mrs. Bass died in 1869. She was a woman of superior qualities and is remembered by her children as a mother faithful and true to their best interests. The father lived till 1883. He early mastered the art of successfully tilling his native heath, and was regarded as an authority on all questions pertaining to agriculture. He accumulated a good estate, and in his public and private benefactions was liberal and just. He was a member and active worker in the Methodist church, and as such is remembered as being of peculiar and wonderful power in prayer. Although not an educated man, when "talking to the Lord" he had a command of language seldom surpassed. "Syd" Bass, as he is familiarly known, came to manhood on the wave that ushered in the civil war, having been born June 22, 1841. He enlisted as a private in Company K, Fifteenth Georgia regiment, in 1861. He participated in some of the hardest fought battles of the war, notably the seven days' fight around Richmond, Fredericksburg, Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, Chancellorsville and Second Manassas, and wears the marks of two Yankee bullets, having been wounded in the shoulder at Sharpsburg, and in the thigh at Second Manassas. Witnessing the surrender of his beloved chieftain at Appomattox, he returned home, gladly laying down the implements of war to engage in the industries of peace. The business of Mr. Bass since the war has been such as to give him a large acquaintance in the county, among whom he is regarded as a faithful and conscientious official. He is a democrat, is a Mason and belongs to the Methodist church. The marriage of Mr. Bass was consummated with Miss Ella C. Simmons in 1872, who is the mother of three children: George E., died in infancy; Anna le Gay and Ora E., young ladies at home.

My mother's father, Andrew Jackson Bassett, was born in Georgia. His father owned a plantation and a number of Negro slaves. A short time after grandfather Bassett came of age, he left home because he didn't believe in slavery. He settled in Pike County (now Bullock) Ala. and the rest of life was spent there. I have been told that he never did go back to Georgia. But I have also been told that one time after he married and their first child was born, he went back on a visit. He naturally wanted them to see his wife and baby. On leaving, his father offered to give him part of his slaves. He told his father he didn't want them as he did not believe in slavery and he never went back. Andrew Jackson Bassett was a Mason, and I have heard mother say many times that there had to be something very unusual if he didn't attend Lodge. He settled on a small block of land, raised a large family, lived and died on the same place. They had twin girls. The next set was Lewis and Thelma Bassett, and the next set was the twin boys born to Betty and Carlton Terry. So I judge the twins come from the Bassett side of the family. John Fisk Terry, born Oct. 24, 1869, had one brother William Rich, born Aug. 24, 1871.

Nigel Fox Bassett: senior partner of Clifford Chance

Nigel Fox Bassett was the senior partner at Clifford Chance, the London-based law firm that has grown into one of the world’s largest commercial practice, from 1990 to 1993, and he was closely involved in the 1987 merger that created it.

On retirement, Fox Bassett was appointed to the Building Societies Commission, the mortgage lender’s regulatory authority. During his eight-year term at the BSC most of Britain’s biggest building societies – including the Halifax, the Woolwich, Alliance and Leicester and Northern Rock – swapped mutual ownership by customers for life as Stock Exchange-listed banks.

Fox Bassett was born in 1929, attended Taunton School and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read history and law. He qualified as a solicitor in 1956 and in 1960, at 31, was made a partner of Coward Chance, a forerunner firm of Clifford Chance.

In the early 1960s expertise at the firm was less specialised than it is now and Fox Bassett won respect for his work in the commercial and financial fields of law. Federal Mogul, the US engineering company that was expanding overseas, was a client, as was Pioneer Concrete of Australia and Cubazucar, the Cuban state marketing organisation. In 1971 Fox Bassett acted for the Government of Argentina in a boundary dispute with Chile centered on the Beagle Channel near Tierra del Fuego. His expertise was sought by overseas banks wishing to establish branches in the City of London.
His practice included work resulting from the 1986 Financial Services Act, especially where it applied to the running of futures and options exchanges. Internationalisation featured strongly in Fox Bassett’s long career. At his instigation Coward Chance opened its first overseas office, in Brussels, in 1973. It was followed by moves into Dubai, Sharja, Hong Kong and Singapore. Legal professionals are often cautious, and some partners at Coward Chance often expressed nervousness about expansion, fearing it would dilute the strength of established practices in London, and elsewhere. Had it not been for the determination of Fox Bassett, the expansion would have been delayed and might not have taken place at all.

Fox Bassett was part of the team at Coward Chance that orchestrated the 1987 merger with Clifford-Turner, which catapulted the newly merged firm to the top of the list of biggest law practices. The network of foreign offices proved a critical element in the negotiations with Clifford-Turner. They were important bases from which the merged firm grew.

At the outset Clifford Chance had joint senior partners: Tom Johnson-Gilbert from Coward Chance and Sir Max Williams from Clifford-Turner. In 1990, Fox Bassett was elected to the post outright.

As with most mergers, the integration was occasionally fraught. In this case, established lawyers with strong ideas and entrenched habits became obliged to embrace change. Few partners in either firm had many dealings with those of the other firm, reflecting the fact that the two practices were quite different.

Following an initial period of familiarisation after 1987, contemporaries remember Fox Bassett’s tenure as senior partner as make-or-break time. Jeremy Carver, a longstanding colleague of Fox Bassett at Coward Chance and then Clifford Chance, said: “The period of 1990-1993 was crucial in ensuring that the merger worked… without Nigel’s rock-like dependability as senior partner, it might have failed.”

Fox Bassett was succeeded by Keith Clark in 1993. He served with distinction as chairman of the executive committee of the British Institute for International and Comparative Law, as honorary treasurer of the British branch of the International Law Association, and in the City of London Law Society. In 1998 he joined the board of London First, the business lobby group dedicated to raising the profile of the capital abroad.

He married his wife Anne, in 1961 and he is survived by her, a son and a daughter.

Nigel Fox Bassett, senior partner of Clifford Chance, 1990-93, was born on November 1, 1929. He died, after suffering an aneurism, on October 26, 2008, aged 78.

In Memory of Laura May Bassett
February 10, 1926 – October 13, 2012
Descended from Oregon pioneers, Laura May Hoss Bassett was born on 2/10/26 to Hal and Myrtle (Lantz) Hoss in Oregon City, the youngest of 4 children. The family moved between Salem, Taft, Toledo and Molalla before and after Hal served as Secretary of State from 1928 - 1934. Laura graduated from Molalla High School, where she was class Valedictorian, then studied at OSU for one year. Moving to Portland, she worked for the John Deere Plow Company and as a receptionist at KEX Radio. She later worked at the Deschutes County Clerk office. Following WWII, Laura met Clifford "Bud" Bassett, Jr. on a blind date; they wed on 6/6/47. They were married for 33 years before Bud’s death, living in Bend and Portland. In 1980, Laura met her longtime companion, Jerry Goodwin, with whom she celebrated 32 years together just weeks prior to her passing. A longtime resident of NE Portland, Laura was a homemaker and the neighborhood Avon Lady for over 45 years, making lifelong friends via her sales route. She was fan of Dixieland and a member of the Traditional Jazz Society. Laura enjoyed dancing, travel, a good laugh, and spending time with family and friends as well as her ritual of morning coffee and keno at Sam’s in Hollywood. The extended family will long remember Christmas Eve at Aunt Laura’s when she was likely to play standards on the piano as the cousins sang along. Despite health challenges of the last few years, Laura retained her sunny disposition and skill at the crossword puzzle until the end, and died at home, just as she’d wished. She is survived by her daughter, Jeanine Bassett (Kyle Newell), and son, Robert (Judy) Bassett of Portland, and sister, Jean Gallagher of Salem. The family wishes to express gratitude to Providence Hospice, most especially Dee, Gail and Erin. A memorial will be held at Ross Hollywood Chapel, 4733 NE Sandy, on Friday, 10/26 at 2pm. ( In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Providence Hospice or the Oregon Humane Society.Read Complete Obituary
