Gregory Alan Bass

October 24, 1948 - April 27, 2014


Greg Bass, a longtime resident of Nelson, BC passed away on April 27, 2014 in the comfort of his home. An avid outdoorsman, Greg could often be found fishing, hiking and camping. Greg grew up in Oregon, attending the University of Oregon after serving 4 years in the Marines. He went on to become a Speech Therapist for the Nelson School district, where he worked for over three decades helping kids. 


Greg was a people person. He was loved by many and always sought out the good in everyone. His boisterous laugh, witty sense of humor, zest for life and kind heart will be truly missed. He is survived by his brother Dan, sisters Kim and Deb, sons Justin and Regan and his grandchildren Kayden and Elsie.

From: Cheryl Schadt
Relation: long-time friend & schoolmate

Greg was a close friend in high school, but we lost track of each other until 3 yrs ago. Since then we enjoyed several hikes, celebrations & lots of fun conversations & I looked forward to many more-you left us way too early Greg. I’ll hold you in my heart forever.

From: Martin Orr
Relation: Longtime Friend

To all who knew Greg, family and friends, I must say he was a very good man. My best friend for many years we hiked and biked the Kettle Valley Railway, Gulf Islands, Olympic Mountains and many more. The Best Man at my wedding because Greg was always there when you needed him in good times and bad. Alas, what I cherished most about Greg was our long and deep conversations, well read, Greg had an informed opinion on many important topics. Thanks for being there Greg, I love you and hope to see you on the other side! Truly a great friend! Martin Orr
