Leslie Arthur Bass, Jr. of Wakefield passed away unexpectedly on January 15, 2018. Leslie lived in Wakefield his whole life; he was the son of the late Leslie Arthur Bass, Sr. and Martha Anne Teall.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Laura Ann Bass; his daughter, Amber Perry (Barrett); step-daughters, Noelle and Jessie Perez; two grandchildren, Kennedy and Rylee; his brothers, Melvin Bass (Tami), and Christopher Bass; his half-brother, Michael McLemore; his step-father, Vernon Teall and numerous nieces and nephews.  

A memorial service will be held at 1 pm on Saturday, January 20, 2018 at R.W. Baker & Co. Funeral Home, Wakefield Chapel with Rev. Cliff Fritzinger and Dr. Nancy Moore officiating. The family will receive friends following the service at the home of Melvin and Tami Bass.

So sad to hear the passing of a good friend, husband, father and a hard worker. Les stopped by our farm before Christmas, just to say hello and to wish us a Merry Christmas. I have always respected him and was so appreciative of his friendship. I'm shocked and my heart goes out to his family.

Laura, we are so sorry to hear about Les' passing. We have you in our prayers. We were Blessed to know the two of you were there for Mom. She thought a lot of Les and you and talked about you often. Please let us know if there is anything we can do. God will see you through this and you need to depend on Him. May He give you strength and comfort.
