  1. Our deepest sympathies to the family of Basil. My mother Simone White who is 92 and still living and my father Gus White, deceased were neighbors to the Jennings family in Lively til we moved away June 1960. My brother, Terry went to school with Maureen and I played with Sharon,Susan and Geraldine. We were also neighbors at the cottage near Webbwood. We have fond memories of the family. We send our love, thoughts and prayers. The Whites.

  2. Uncle Basil was always so much fun to see on vacation from just hanging out in his garage listening to some historical tale to seeing him practice a song on his guitar for an upcoming gig at the Eagles Lodge. He lived life to the fullest and never had a huge list of regrets like most of us burden ourselves with. He will be missed but hard to forget much love and respect your nephew Jeff Benedict son of Shirley Jennings

  7. I worked with Shelley and she always spoke so highly about her father and even though I never met her father I can see he must have been a man of great strength and integrity as Shelley emulated those family values. For some life moments there are no words to express sorrow but what the heart grieves over what it has lost, know that their spirit rejoices over what family legacy it leaves behind. Deepest sympathies to Shelley and family over their loss, but may you find comfort knowing he is a peace.
