Lee Page Bassett

Lee Page Bassett of Oro Valley, Arizona passed away on January 14, 2022 at the age of 82. He was born September 9, 1939 in Burlington, New Jersey to Roland and Doris Bassett.
Lee is survived in death by his beloved wife of 49 years, Carol Ann Seyfarth-Bassett, his sister Cindy Scott, four children John (Cindy), Valerie Bibus (Bill), Victoria Cesaretti, and Jill Sullivan Baker (Eric). He is also survived by six Grandchildren and one Great Granddaughter.
Graduating from the Class of 1960 from Florence New Jersey Highschool, Lee played center on the football team and then decided to extend his education and graduate with a two-year trade degree as well.
For a while Lee worked at Stryker Machine Products as a machinist in Trenton, New Jersey, which led to him meeting his wonderful wife Carol as she worked there as a receptionist at the same time. After Stryker Machine, Lee decided to try his own hand at opening his own business and opened his own machine shop entitled Bassett Precision.
In May of 2000, Lee and Carol decided to move to Oro Valley, Arizona because he loved the heat and the beautiful desert landscape. Soon after Lee got a job at Bronlyn Technologies in Tucson, Arizona where he was liked very well by all of his fellow employees and they all agreed that Lee was very easy to work with.
Lee loved many things such as his favorite football team the Philadelphia Eagles, which he has followed and loved since he was 17. He also loved photography, he has many great shots of Arizona?s wildlife, especially of the cactus and bobcats that roam the desert landscape. He was also a collector of many coins and stamps as well.
In Sun City where we live, I want to give a special, ?Thank You? to all of the kind people who would stop by with their dogs so Lee could visit with them. It made him so very happy. He was in a wheelchair since suffering from a stroke in 2010. It was not an easy life, but we were a team and did the best we could. Every day we always said, ?I love you? to each other. Lee was so loved and will be missed by me, Family and Friends.
If anyone would like an original copy of the 2014 picture of Lee and Carol, please mail Carol Ann a request and she will mail you one. I know Lee would love for you to have one. It was taken by their very good friend, Sara Moore.

Letter sent to Mrs. Charles Bassett in 1964 by Julia McCann of Castleton, Vermont
My grandfather, Simon Goodyear Bassett was born Dec. 25, 1833 in Sharon, VT. He was 9 years old when his father, a Dr., died at the age of 41. He had two sisters and one brother. His mother was left with little support and it was necessary for her boys to live with other persons and working from place to place until they were 15/16, receiving such schooling as could be taken advantage of in the intervals of their labor.
When grandfather was 15 years old his mother bought a farm on the East Hubbardton road - known then aas North Britain. Her house was typical of the times with a summer kitchen, wood house, carriage house, etc., all attached. She also owned the house located at the point of roads where the sculptor now lives, (I'm sure grandfather would have much to say if he could see the strange (naked) figures on his property).
My grandfather's mother married the second time - a man from Massachusetts, Hollis Freeman. He had two sons older than her boys and after a few years grandfather went west and settled in Tuscola, IL. He built the first grocery store and post office, and managed both. It was there he met and married Mary Robertson in 1862. Their daughter Avah was born there. Back East the following year, Mr. Freeman became ill and died in 1863 - again leaving Grandfather's mother a widow.
Simon G. and family returned to Castleton in 1863 to manage the farm for his mother. There they had 2 more children, my father Clinton & Uncle Charles. His mother died in 1885 leaving the farm to her son.
In 1876, Grandfather built a saw mill at Margaret falls. This was a lucrative business. He also had a Maple Sugar orchard. In August of 1886 he was one of the committee of 7 who selected the site on Bird Mountain to build a Masonic Monument....

Bass grew up in Jonesville, and went to work when he graduated high school. He couldn?t see any reason to go to college, so he didn?t. ?I come from a farm where wages were a dollar a day, and all the sudden, I was being paid some big wages to primarily supervise meat packaging and display,? Bass said. ?I couldn?t believe you could make money that easy.? He skipped going to LSU, because he didn?t think he could make more money by going to college.
When he joined the Air Force in October 1950 to avoid being drafted into the Army, Little Bud was a young boy and Bass wasn?t as close with him and the younger children as he was with his older siblings. Bass joined the Air Force assuming it would involve flying. ?I thought then that everyone in the Air Force flew and came back home after resting a while. I didn?t realize only 20 percent of the people flew and the rest served on the ground,? he said.

Air Force on the ground
Bass? military career began at Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana and it took him all over the United States and abroad. His specialty was electronics and it wasn?t too long before he was teaching new cadets. In 1951, he went to England with the 59th Air Wing to Burtonwood, a former World War II air depot. He taught radar, electronics and fire control systems in the B-29 and B-50 aircraft and attended school on base through Warrington and the University of Maryland. Back in the U.S., he was assigned to James Connally AFB in Waco, where he met his future wife, Retha Joe Furlow, a nurse with the 3565th Medical group. They married in 1954. Bass continued his military career. He served at many bases throughout the U.S., including Lowry in Denver; Columbus, Ohio with the SAC unit at Lockbourne AFB; Bergstrom AFB; Glasgow AFB in Montana; and Castle AFB in California. He retired after 20 years and 28 days as a master sergeant in November 1970. Little Bud was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1967 while Charles was at Castle. He saw his brother for the last time when Little Bud took a 30-day leave and came home. Just finished with Tiger training in preparation for Vietnam, Little Bud told his brother he had the choice to go elsewhere but turned it down. Bass urged him to reconsider, but Little Bud refused to leave his ?brothers? who were going to Vietnam. Less than two months later, he was dead. On March 1, 1968, Budrow Bass Jr., 20, was killed by an improvised explosive device planted in the ground, leaving behind an expecting wife. It was near Chu Chi in Vietnam and the Army unit was marching in single file, when at the front of the line someone fired a gun or some similar device. It was a decoy to get soldiers, as the enemy knew, to hit the ground instinctively. There were many ?$2 personnel mines? planted and Little Bud landed on one. He died instantly.
No news is usually bad news Bass got a call from his father at Castle, who told him Little Bud was ?missing.? Bass told his father to ?prepare for the worst and hope for the best.? He knew from experience that many families are first informed their loved one is ?missing? to give them time to process the information. A couple of days later, they usually inform the family that he is deceased and his body recovered.
Bass escorted his brother?s body home from Oakland Army Base. ?It was one of the most difficult jobs in my life,? he said. Arriving home in the middle of the night, there were about 500 people there to honor Little Bud. ?I never saw anything like it in my life,? he said. Today, Bass is retired and still married to Retha. They have four children, four granddaughters and three great-grandsons. He volunteers in the community, and he and Retha have spent years sponsoring Baylor girls to provide support while they are away from home. He thinks about his brother, especially on Little Bud?s birthday and on the day he died. He gets emotional when he talks about it. But, he feels God has a plan in mind. Regarding his own service, Bass said, ?It was a job I volunteered to do. I feel honored to have served. I felt like a part in it by preparing the men to carry out the mission.?

46274 Volney was 9 years old when his parents came to Wisconsin, and he grew to manhood on his father's farm in Salem township. He attended the old fashioned subscription schools and lived at home until his 23rd year, when he
began renting and working land. After a time, he purchased 60 acres of land, which he later sold to purchase 80 acres. He sold this to buy 200 acres. He sold this too, finally buying the old Cotton place of 160 acres in Bristol,
Wisconsin. He lived there eight years before his health failed and he sold out. He died at Bristol Station on 31 Jul 1891, aged 68 years. He was a member of the board of supervisors in the town of Salem. Politically he was a
Republican. He had three brothers, Elias, William, and Charles, in the Civil War.

Volney L. Bassett resided in Kenosha county for many years and
witnessed a great change in conditions here as the county was in many respects
a frontier district when he removed here with his parents in 1842. He became
identified with agricultural pursuits and gained a gratifying measure of
success as a farmer. His last years were spent in honorable retireme
Bristol Station, where he died in 1901.
Mr. Bassett was a native of Cayuga county, New York, his birth
occurring on the 19th of December, 1833. His parents were Jotham and Jeannette
(Woodworth) Bassett, who were also born in New York. The maternal grandfather,
Elias Woodworth, was likewise a native of that state and became a pioneer of
Kenosha county, Wisconsin. He took up government land in Salem township and
there died when about eighty-five years of age. Jotham Bassett removed west in
1842 and took up his residence in Salem township, Kenosha county. Later he
went to Waushara county and he resided there for many years, but died,
however, at the home of his daughter, Eudlophia, in Iowa. His wife, who
survived him for many years, also died at the home of that daughter. There
were nine children in the family, four of whom are now living, namely:
Ambrose, a resident of San Jose, California; Elias, a resident of Minnesota;
William, of Tomales, California; and Eudlophia, the wife of William
Vandenberg, of Baraboo, Wisconsin. Elias, William and Charles were all
soldiers of the Civil War, and John enlisted but was not accepte
Volney L. Bassett grew to manhood upon his father's farm in Sal
township, Kenosha county, and attended the subscription schools in the
acquirement of an education. He remained at home until his twenty-third year,
when he rented land. Subsequently he purchased sixty acres but later sold that
and bought eighty acres. On selling his second place he purchased two hundred
acres but later disposed of that and bought the old Cotting place of one
hundred and sixty acres in Bristol township, which was at one time considered
the finest farm in the county. After operating that place for eight years his
health failed and he sold out. His last days were passed at Bristol Station
and there his death occurred on the 31st of July, 1891, when he was in his
sixty-eighth year. He was a practical and efficient farmer and his well
directed labors were rewarded by good crops. As the years passed his resources
increased and he was recognized as one of the substantial men of his township.
Mr. Bassett was married on the 25th of December, 1855, to Miss Adeline
Foster, who was a daughter of Andrew W. and Prudence (Cornwall) Foster. The
Foster family is one of the oldest in Massachusetts. William Foster, the
grandfather of Mrs. Bassett, was born on the 22nd of November, 1783 and
followed agricultural pursuits in Oswego county, New York. He fought in the
War of 1812 and while at the front participated in the battle of Sackett's
Harbor. He married Olive Bettis, who was born July 10, 1785, and who passed
away on the 19th of February, 1877. They had a family of thirteen children,
all of whom are deceased save Julia, who was born on the 12th of February,
1830, and is the widow of Joseph Hicks, her home being at Genoa Junction.
Mr. and Mrs. Andrew W. Foster were both born in New York and resided
in Oswego county for many years. He was a carpenter by trade but on removing
to Kenosha county, Wisconsin, with his family in 1841 purchased a fa
sixty acres in Salem township and subsequently he acquired title to one
hundred acres in that township about three miles northeast of Salem Station.
He died at Salem in January, 1892, when eighty-five years of age, and h
wife, who was born in 1808, passed away in 1895, when in her eighty-seventh
year. In early life they belonged to the Methodist Episcopal church but later
became identified with the Spiritualists. They were the parents of six
children: Mrs. Adeline Bassett; Betsey A., the wife of Fred Plank, of
Petaluma, California; Andrew W., who died in Genoa Junction in 1900; Leander
E., who died when nineteen years old; Orlando J., a resident of Fond du Lac,
Wisconsin; and Julian A., of Salem Station. Mrs. Bassett was one of the first
teachers of Kenosha county, opening her first school in her father's bedroom
with a few children in attendance.
Mr. Bassett supported the republican party and was at one time a
member of the board of supervisors of the town of Salem. He was always willing
to give of his time and energy to the promotion of the public welfare and was
recognized as a good citizen. He gained many friends throughout the county and
his demise was felt as a distinct loss to his community.

Bassett, Charles E. (Senator), lawman (c. 1847-Jan. 5, 1896). Born at New Bedford, Massachusetts, he enlisted and served throughout the Civil War, being mustered out at Fort Sill, Indian Territory. Chosen sheriff of Ford County, Kansas, June 5, 1873, he was re-elected twice, serving until 1878. In September 1877, he, with under-sheriff Bat Masterson and others chased Sam Bass following a Union Pacific holdup at Big Springs, Nebraska, but without result. When Masterson succeeded him as sheriff (because law prohibited Bassett from running for a third successive term), Masterson appointed him under-sheriff. Bassett was named Dodge City marshal after Ed Masterson was killed in April 1878. Bassett was on hand for the finale of the Loving-Richardson gun fight in the Long Branch Saloon at Dodge, April 5, 1879. He resigned as city marshal in November 1879, went to Colorado in 1880 and later to Texas, returning to Dodge City in September 1881. He then apparently made his headquarters at Kansas City, returning to Dodge from time to time, including one occasion to take part with Luke Short in his dispute with city authorities in June 1883. He owned and worked at various Kansas City saloons until his death, at Hot Springs, Arkansas.

The Kansas City Star, January 7, 1896, page 1, col. 7
"Senator" Bassett Dead
The passing of a Frontier Character Well Known Here
A Quiet, Modest Man Who, With "Bat" Masterson, Rid Dodge City of Despeeradoes
When It Was a Wild Cowboy Town
Charles C. Bassett, known to the sporting fraternity all over the country, a prominent figure in the frontier days of Kansas, is dead. News of his death at Hot Springs Sunday was received in this city to-day. Inflammatory rheumatism, from which he had been a sufferer for several years, is supposed to have been the immediate cause.
The life history of Charlie Bassett, "Senator", as he was known to his friends and acquaintances, is closely entwined with that of "Bat" Masterston, Luke Short, W.H. Harris and other noted characters who were before the public eye in the '70's. Bassett was born in New Bedford, Mass., about 49 years ago. He came west after the war and, after drifting about the mining camps and frontier towns for a time, took up his abode in Dodge City, Kansas. The town was overrun with a lawless element. Desperadoes were as numerous as flies in summer time and murders were of nightly occurrence. It was a wide open town with all that the name implies. Peace loving citizens were alarmed at the condition of affairs. Marshals who had attempted to quell the desperadoes had either been killed or driven from the town. Finally "Bat" Masterson was made marshal. He chose Bassett as his right hand man and chief deputy. Bassett was of peaceable disposition, but had nerves of steel, unquestioned courage and was a dead shot.
Masterson and Bassett soon established a record as fearless and desperate officials. Several of the desperadoes were killed and the remainder driven from the town. Afterward, in recognition of his services, Bassett was made sheriff of the county.
About fifteen years ago Bassett came to Kansas City as manager of Webster & Hughes's "Marble Hall" saloon on main street, between Fifth street and Missouri avenue. Subsequently he opened the "Senate" saloon on West Ninth street and there he obtained the soubriquet of "Senator". The venture was a failure and Bassett went to work as bartender for Frank Jones and Hannon & Dixon. A year ago he went to Europe with Emil Werk, the millionaire, now of Cincinnati, but formerly of this city. On his return from Europe, Bassett went to Hot Springs, Ark., in the hope that the water would benefit his health.
It is said that like "Bat" Masterson, Bassett had several notches on his revolver, each of which stood for a human life. Concerning this he never spoke, even to his most intimate friends, and he rarely referred to the exciting times when he was sheriff and deputy marshal in Dodge City. While living in this city he was a member of the gun clubs and took a prominent part in all sporting matters. When a mere boy Bassett enlisted in the Union army at Philadelphia. He served through the war of the rebellion and was mustered out at Fort Sill, Indian Territory.

In a famous picture taken in Dodge City, Kansas, known as the Dodge City Peace Commissioners, the following appear:

Excerpt from "Why The West Was Wild"
On November 4, 1879, the Globe reported that "Ex-Sheriff Charles E. Bassett returned last week from New Mexico, where he has been for the past ten days in the interest of the Adams Express Company". The day the Globe came out the city council met and appointed James Masterson city marshal to replace Bassett who had by then resigned.
On December 23 Bassett was reported to be in St. Louis, Mo., but by January 6, 1880, when the January term of the Ford county district court convened, he was back in Dodge for duty as deputy sheriff. His name appeared in the newspapers a few times in minor items which stated that he took prisoners to the penitentiary, but apparently he was involved in nothing of note for the remainder of his stay in Dodge City. On April 27, 1880, the Ford County Globe noted his exit from town: "Ex-Sheriff Chas. E. Bassett, accompanied by Mysteious Dave (Mather) and two other prospectors, started out last week in search of 'greener fields and pastures new.' They went in a two-horse wagon, after the style in the days of '49." The Times, May 1, stated that he was headed for the Gunnison country.
The newspapers of Dodge City did not mention Bassett again for more than 16 months. On September 13, 1881, the Globe noticed his return in this article: "Charles E. Bassett, ex-sheriff of Ford county, and formerly city marshal of Dodge City - one of the old timers - arrived the city last Tuesday after an absence of a year and a half. Charley looks as natural as life, wears good clothes, and says Texas is suffering from dry weather." On September 8, two days after his return, he was mentioned as a possible candidate for sheriff, but two weeks later he was in Kansas City and apparently planning to stay, judging from this item in the Times, September 22, 1881: "Hon. C.E. Bassett, a well known cattle man of Kansas and Texas, returned to the city yesterday after a brief stay at Dodge City. He will remain here for some time. Kansas City Journal. Jim Kelley has charge of Mr. Bassett's herds during his absence."
Another 18 months passed before the name of Charles E. Bassett again appeared in the Dodge City newspapers. The Ford County Globe of March 20, 1883, reported that he had been in Dodge City from Kansas City "the first of last week and spent a day or two in our city visiting old-time friends."
Bassett was again in Dodge City in June, 1883, with several other prominent Western gun fighters, to aid Luke Short in his quarrel with the city authorities.
Twice more, on January 1, 1884, and April 7, 1885, Bassett was mentioned as being in Dodge City. No further contemporary information has been found on the Dodge City career of Charles E. Bassett.

was also and engineer and it was while he was apprenticed to his father
works of J.T. Lowke and Sons that the firm of Bassett-Lowke took shape.

model-making needs, he decided to produce them for himself and for othe
faced with the same problem.
In this he was helped by his father and by his friend, H.F.R.
Franklin. They advertised in the Model Engineer, then just established. A mail
order business sprang up and the firm of Bassett-Lowke was born. The first of
the famous catalogues was issued in 1899. Since then his models of railways,
ships, and engineering equipment, many of them exquisite replicas of their
prototypes, have become world famous.
Bassett-Lowke was a director and one of the founders of the
Northampton Repertory Theatre, and since his election as a member of the
Northampton Town Council in 1930 he played a prominent part in municipal
activities. He retired from the council in 1952, after having been an alderman
