Not sure what to say?

I knew Basil for 35 years. He was a great friend and a good old Seabee, a fun guy to talk tp

So the story goes that Hank Metzger, Basil’s brother-in-law, was in the Seabees WWII, in Kodiak, Alaska. Hank was building a runway at the airport.
Unbeknown to Hank, Basil was shipped up there. He went to the office and asked @hey where is Hank Metzger? He was told Hank was running a D 8 Catapillar on the runway. Basil ran out there; jumped on the back of the D 8...grabbed Hank by the shoulders and hugged his brother in law!!!!!

It was a true honor to have Basil on the Honor Flight with us. He was very deserving and it was likely as much fun for me as it was for him. I enjoyed his company very much and would have liked to spend more time with him other than just that 1 day.

Rip basil .you are now with your wife and other family members. It was a good 4 months being your caregiver.god be with you now...Connie and terry
