Fred Albert Basile
Fred A. Basile, (73) of Big Island, Nova Scotia, formerly of Longmeadow Massachusetts, passed away peacefully at home on March 13, 2020.
He was born in Springfield Massachusetts to Ann ‘Mama’ and ‘Daddy’ Jimmy Basile.
Fred was deeply devoted to his family and fiercely battled Parkinson’s. He was always searching for the largest mushroom, busy growing the perfect tomato and sharing family feasts. Anyone who knew Fred knows he loved to talk, particularly about sports, history and politics- a hobby cemented by his education at StFX.
He is survived by his wife Susan Hope, children; Paul, Chris (Lisa), and Kate (Jarrod); siblings Sylvia and Joseph.
He is predeceased by his parents and brother Paul.
A private burial and celebration of life will take place at a later date. If you ever walk by the Basilica doors of Saint Mary’s (Halifax), you will see his craftsmanship and can think of Fred.
We’ll miss you, Dad, but will carry your spirit and strength always.
