      Haroldo Leo Bass, age 82, of Iola, Kansas, passed away Monday, January 6, 2020, surrounded by his loved ones at his home.

      Leo was born March 23, 1937, to Jessie and Margarite (Fisher) Bass at Chanute, Kansas. He grew up in Chanute, graduating from Chanute High School. Leo then attended Neosho Community College until he was drafted into the United States Army in 1960. Leo was honorably discharged on March 26, 1962. Leo returned to Chanute where he began working at Kustom Electronics building amplifiers for many years before going to work for the City of Chanute and Neosho Paper Products.
