Scott and family, I will miss him at church. He was always there. Prayers for you all. I am sorry for your loss. God Bless.

Teresa and Scott, Sorry hear of your dad’s passing and your loss. We’ll always remember his kindness and sense of humor. He served his faith, family, community and country with the highest regards. Our sincerest condolences to you and your family.

Brother Bill Bascom was a dedicated Mason. I had the privilege of working with him in the Scottish Rite, and remember the many Masonic funerals he conducted. Bill was good at delivering his words and making a point. He labored in many degrees always making a positive impact. I salute our Brother and celebrate his life. He made a positive difference as he lived by his principles. So mote it be.

Grandpa Bill will always hold a special place in my heart. One of my favorite memories of Grandpa Bill was the day he gave me a yarn doll named Molly. Molly had a bright red nose.When I would squeeze her nose I would hear a unique squeaking sound. However, Molly's nose would only squeak when Grandpa Bill came over to visit. It wasn't until a few years later did I realize who was making that squeaking noise. I will always treasure Grandpa's sense of humor.

Well done, good and faithful servant.........

Scott and Teresa, So sorry to get the news tonight of Dad's passing. So many good memories of 18th St. One strong one was the building of the stone wall between us. And taking care of the Siameze Cat when you all would be gone. I moved back to Marshall Mo this past July. Been 40 years that Ina Mae and I was in Indiana. Ina Mae passed away 3 years ago in August. My deepest cond0lences to both of you and your Family's

Bill's family, I am so sorry to hear about Bill's passing. I remember Bill from the 70's and 80's when I was young. My dad worked at Rockwell with Bill, and was a wonderful friend to my dad. Please accept my deepest condolences for your family's loss.

I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 - "The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away the tears from all faces." Also at Revelation 21 verse 4 we find God's promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn to the website at: www,jw.org (Search: Comfort)

Scott and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Bill was such a sweet and gentle man. I know you will miss him greatly. Jenny
