Robert L. "Bobby" Basso

Obituary Condolences

Robert L. "Bobby" Basso Resident of Livermore Robert L. "Bobby" Basso , 69, passed away April 21, 2007 in Pleasanton of complications from diabetes surgery. He was a lifelong resident of Livermore with well-established ranching roots. Mr. Basso lived in the country most of his life prior to moving to town in 1992. He was employed as an explosives technician for SOS in Hollister for 26 years before retiring in 1999. A member of the Livermore Rodeo Stockman's Assoc., Bobby enjoyed the benefits of retirement through dinner exchanges with family and friends, playing cards and watching his favorite team, the Oakland A's, play ball. Bobby was always ready to help family members and enjoyed making raviolis, especially for the holidays. He loved to test his luck at the casinos in Reno, Tahoe, Jackson and Sonora, and was always excited about road trips such as staying with his nieces in Nevada, picnicking in the Napa Valley, or strolling the streets in the Mother Lode. He was particularly proud of his international travels to Italy, where he visited the birthplace of his family's roots, and also Greece. He had a special place in his heart for his dog, "Skippy." He was preceded in death by his parents, Steven and Emma Basso; brothers, Anthony "Shorty," Clarence "Spooly" and Ernie "Fats." Survived by brothers, Earl and Raymond "Tuffy" Basso, both of Livermore; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Visitation will be Thurs., April 26, 1-9 p.m., with rosary at 7 p.m. at Callaghan Mortuary, 3833 East Ave., Livermore. Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated Fri., April 27, 10 a.m. at St. Michael Church, 458 Maple St., Livermore. Contributions to the American Diabetes Association, 1900 Powell St., Suite 285, Emeryville, CA 94608, would be appreciated by the family. Callaghan Mortuary & Livermore Crematory (925) 447-2942
