Mark Bradley Basman, 56, passed away on Friday, April 21, 2006, in New Bridge, Ore.

Mark Bradley Basman was born on May 9, 1949, in Bakersfield, Calif., to Cyril Louis Basman Jr. and June Dorothea Ankrom Basman. He was raised and educated in Bakersfield, graduating from East Bakersfield High School in 1967. Shortly after graduation he married his high school sweetheart, Theresa Lee Penner.

In 1969, he joined the U.S. Navy and served six years, 11 months and 29 days on the U.S.S. Enterprise. During this stint in the Navy he became a shell back (crossed the equator).

His favorite car was his 1964 Chevy Impala, 327, white over blue in color with white interior. While he was away in boot camp, his wife traded it for a Volkswagen.

After being honorably discharged from the Navy, Mark went to work for AMI American Micro Systems in San Jose, then to work for AMT. He traveled extensively with AMT and then worked for Dry Tech Computer. He worked in the computer chip industry as an environmental engineer most all of his working years.

While Mark lived in Pocatello, Idaho, he began raising buffalo. He enjoyed everything and anything that had to do with buffalo.

In 1992, Mark moved to Richland to take care of his parents. He loved being outside and taking care of the place complete with its orchards, gardens, and more.

Mark was preceded in death by his father, Louis, in February 2004.

He is survived by his mother, June Basman, now in Fla.; sister, Sandy Kramer and husband, Don of Cocoa, Fla.; brother, Chris and wife, Linda Basman of Martinez, Calif.

Those wishing to make a memorial contribution in memory of Mark may do so to the Eagle Valley Ambulance through Tami’s Pine Valley Funeral Home, P.O. Box 543, Halfway, OR 97834.
