      Piedmont SAR Newsletter, January 2011

      LeRoy Bassett Jr. became a member of the Piedmont Chapter as a surprise Christmas gift from his son and grandson who are current members of the chapter. The three generations of the Bassett family joined the SAR as descendants of Patriot Richard William Bassett who served as a Dragoon in Lee’s Legion. Their applications were the first in their line to claim Richard William Bassett as a Patriot Ancestor.

      LeRoy has been married to his high school sweetheart, Frankie Helms Bassett, for over 50 years. They have two children: Tim Bassett of Cumming, Ga. And Tamera Bassett Lane of Birmingham, Al. He is also the proud grandfather of four grandchildren: Ryan and Ashley Bassett, and Hunter and Heath Payant.

      After serving in the United States Air Force, LeRoy attended the Horn School of Drafting and design, Jefferson State College, and University of Alabama in Birmingham where he studied Electrical Engineering. After college, he worked for the Southern Company Nuclear Division until he retired in 2004 after 36 years of service. They currently reside in Birmingham, Alabama, where they are enjoying an active retirement.
