Basman, Cyril Louis “Louie”, Jr. – Obituary

Richland, Oregon

Cyril Louis “Louie” Basman Jr., 80, a longtime Richland resident, died Jan. 7, 2004, at his home.

Louie’s family honored his request that there be no formal service for him.

He was born on Jan. 1, 1924, at Detroit, Mich., to Cyril Louis and Joanna Thomaszowski Basman.

He attended and graduated from Royal Oak High School. After graduation he went on to attend Laurence Institute of Technology. Louie served in the U.S. Navy as a pilot from 1943 to 1946. In 1944, he married June Ankrom at St. Augustine, Fla., and again at Las Vegas, Nev., (just to be sure it was legal). They lived at Bakersfield, Calif., for 33 years where they raised their children.

After his stint in the Navy, Louie went to work at Capitol Heating and Air, he also worked at Foster Heating and Air and he retired at the age of 55 from Supreme Air Conditioning.

During his retirement, Louie and June traveled the Northwest, settling down in Richland. They found, loved and bought their home immediately.

Louie enjoyed working in his shop, doing woodwork, keeping the machines going and puttering in his orchard. In the later years he became an avid reader.

Survivors include his wife, June; his daughter, Sandra Storme Kramer of Florida; sons, Mark Basman of Richland, and Christopher Reid Basman of Martinez, Calif.; sisters, Joanna Sharpe and Rosemary Pike of Detroit, Mich.; two grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pathway Hospice or The Salvation Army through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834
