Henry Roger Bass, age 74, died peacefully on Thursday, October 30, 2020 at Northwestern Healthcare Center.
He was born on February 19, 1946 in Berea, Ohio to Henry and Bernice Bass. Roger was the eldest of three boys – lovingly known as: “Bunt’s Boys.”
Roger spent his formative years in Berea, Ohio where he attended Berea Public Schools, graduating from Berea High School in 1964. During those years he enjoyed playing baseball, football, he ran track and was an excellent skater.
Having a zeal for adventure and the finer things in life, Roger spent time living in: California, Las Vegas, New York, and Connecticut. Upon his return to Ohio, he worked at the I-X Center – Teamsters Local Union 507 where he retired. In addition to being a dedicated laborer, he also spent many years working in the landscaping industry.
He was a consummate lover of music, and seemed the most absorbed and happiest when engaged with his family, friends and favorite pastime.
He leaves his loving memories to be cherished by his wife Joann Bass; mother: Bernice Richardson; his special aunt: Bert; children: Jackie Boyd; Latib Bass; siblings: Randy Bass, Darnell Bass, Tina Bass; grandchildren; great-grandchildren; aunts; uncles; nieces; nephews; and a host of relatives and friends too numerous to mention.
