Charles Bassin

Charles Peter Bassin

On the seventeenth of March, we lost Charles in a tragic accident at his home in Whitehawk Ranch, Northern California.

His life was a contrast of incredible joys and pains, but when we who loved him were privileged to share in his journey, he was the consummate source of compassion, love and laughter.

He leaves behind heartbroken parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, siblings, friends and his Spaniels.

Charles has been laid to rest at Skylawn in the hills above San Mateo.
