Sheldon Bass Obituary
August 11, 1933 - April 9, 2017 Sheldon Bass, a gentle soul with a bottomless heart for his family, friends, dogs, and the sea, passed away at age 83 on April 9, 2017. He is survived by Cynthia, his wife of 57 years; his daughters, Ricki Bass, Victoria Morris, and Wendy Bass Keer; his son-in-law, Gregg Keer; his grandchildren, Benjamin, Jacob, Philip, and Ari; and his brother and sister-in-law, David and Regina Bass. Born in Philadelphia to Belle and Philip Bass, his family moved to Los Angeles where Sheldon grew up in Boyle Heights. After time in the Navy, he settled in Encino to raise his family. Sheldon designed and distributed industrial tools in his downtown L.A. warehouse and was later joined by Cynthia who ran the office with him and worked with clients from around the world. With Cynthia, Sheldon indulged his love of boating as they sailed often on their craft, the C-Shel. As longtime members of the Del Rey Yacht Club, they went on many excursions from Catalina to the Caribbean. Funeral services will be at Mount Sinai Memorial Park, Hollywood Hills, Thursday, April 13, at 2pm.
