I worked with Bas at DOE for many years, he was always such a gentleman, yet always stirring up a good laugh! Always a happy, caring, and giving man, he will be missed by so many. I remember eating at his family restaurant once or twice, and my family and I rented his lovely condo in Ocean City several times...always such a neat and clean environment, as Bas was very neat and clean. Rest in peace my friend.
