Scott Basso Memorial

On the 12th of December last year, 39 year old Bangalow father of 3 young girls, Scott Basso unexpectedly passed away from a suspected cerebral haemorrhage. He had planned to meet his wife Krysten for lunch in Bangalow but did not make it.

Scott was the loving husband of Krysten and dedicated father to their three daughters, Tonaya aged 11, and 9 year old twins Kasey and Ella. This has been a tragic loss to his family, friends and anyone who knew Scott.

Six months prior to his death Scott was diagnosed with a substantial brain tumour after a massive seizure. The tumour was successfully removed with emergency surgery and Scott returned to his Bangalow home and seemed to be recovering well.

Scott was a hardworking man of great integrity and was dedicated to providing a beautiful life for his wife and kids.

With the help of the Bangalow Lions Club, Scott’s family and friends aim to raise funds to relieve the financial pressure and help to maintain the life that Scott would have wished for them and to assist them to remain in their home in Bangalow.

The Scott Basso Memorial Auction supported by Bangalow Lions is being held at the A & I Hall @ Bangalow on the 23rd June 2012. Tickets will go on sale closer to the event when overhead costs have been finalised. There will be 220 tickets available.

Leading up to this there will be raffles run in the Bangalow, Byron and Lismore areas.
