Bade, Craig  
Bade, Craig, passed away on Sunday April 24, 2016. He was born in Louisville on September 2, 1957, to Jean and the late John Bade, Craig was a graduate of the University of Kentucky and a proud member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. Rarely seen without a Kentucky hat or shirt, Craig bled Kentucky blue his entire life. Shortly after graduation, Craig moved to Houston, Texas where he sold oilfield equipment for the Brice Company. While in Houston, Craig met his future wife, Katy. On their blind date, the two shared their last first kiss and began a love story lasting over thirty years. After marrying in 1987, Craig was given the opportunity to move back to his beloved Louisville where he spent the rest of his career as an Independent Sales Representative for Depuy Orthopaedics, later forming the partnership of Snap Orthopaedics. Craig was a well -respected member of the medical community for his entire career, but he will be most remembered for his joy for life, for his ability to see the best in people, for his kind heart, for his devotion as a loyal friend, and most certainly, for his sense of humor. Craig's goal was to make sure that none of us took our lives too seriously. Many a day he walked into his home after work with a mischievous grin on his face and a hilarious story to tell. Craig measured his success not in dollars or awards, but in the laughter he brought to the lives of his family and many friends. His kind, welcoming nature always preceded him. To know Craig was to be his friend. In the last two years of his life, Craig inspired us all with his bravery and continued ability to see the beauty in every day. He loved and appreciated life and through example, encouraged us all to count our many blessings. Craig was a member of Second Presbyterian Church, the Denbarr Club, Louisville Country Club, and a proud founding member of the Thursday Night Group. He loved nothing more than spending time with all of the people he loved. Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Katy; his three children of whom he has always been so proud, Maggie, Luke, and Adam; his mother Jean; his sister Lyle(Chip); his brother John(Emme) and many nieces and nephews. The family would like to thank Craig's team at M. D. Anderson Cancer Center for their exceptional care. Funeral Service will be 11 AM Friday April 29, 2016, at Second Presbyterian Church 3701 Old Brownsboro Road with private burial in Cane Station Cemetery.

Bassett, Lucy Gay  
Lexington Bassett, Lucy Gay, 87, wife of James E. "Ted" Bassett III, passed away on May 1, 2016 at her Home Lanark in Woodford County. Born in Lexington on August 5, 1928, she was the daughter of the late A. B. and Elizabeth Simms Gay of Spring Station, KY. Besides her husband of 65 years, she is survived by her beloved brother, James G. Gay, M.D., his wife, Anne, and their four children, Elizabeth Gay (George) Freeman and their children, Reid, Will and Woods; Dr. Charlotte Gay (John Clay) Stites and their children, Harrison, Elizabeth and Stewart; James Edward "Ted" (Alyson) Gay and their children, James and Eliza; Anne Gay (Richie) Donworth and their children, Margaret and Lucy. Lucy was an honors graduate of The Madeira School, Madeira, VA and Smith College, Northampton, MA, graduating in 1950. She married on Dec. 2, 1950 in Christ Church, Lexington. She led a very active and successful life as the owner and breeder of Lanark Farm, breeding over ten stake winners, including three grade ones, and Adoration, the winner of the 2003 Breeder's Cup Distaff with earnings over $2.1 million. She also bred 21 horses who won over $100,000. According to The Blood Horse Magazine, Lanark Farm was the leading consignor of stake winners for the period of 1996-2000 based on the percentage basis of 13% of the 23 offered for sale at the Keeneland September sale. Lucy was an avid and competitive golfer, winning the Idle Hour Country Club Championship three times and was a runner up in the Lexington City championship. She had a passion for playing different golf courses around the country, particularly Lower Cascades at The Homestead. As a major landowner, she had an intense interest in farmland in Central KY and in 1975 established the real estate firm of Rogers-Bassett, becoming one of the leading farm real estate brokers during the ensuing 20 years. She was an inquisitive traveler and a wonderful ambassador for thoroughbred racing, accompanying her husband, the former President of Keeneland and Breeder's Ltd., to numerous countries and racing events across the world. A graveside service will take place at the Lexington Cemetery on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at 12:30 PM. Visitation will be at Milward-Broadway on Tuesday, May 3, 2016, 5-7 PM.
