In memory of
EDWARD G. BASSETT February 21, 1924 - August 17, 2018 Ed passed away peacefully in Arlington, VA at age 94. His loving nature, wry humor, endless courage, and enthusiasm for the simple joys of life were inspirations to all of us who knew him and enjoyed his company. As a member of "the greatest generation," Ed was rightly proud of his career as an Army non-commissioned officer and for his service as a combat infantryman in Europe in WWII. Ed is survived by his loving wife, Margaret Wisdom; and step-children Frank Kendall, Susan Voinche, Ron Kendall, Janet White, Alan Wisdom, and David Wisdom and their spouses; as well as by many adoring grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He enriched us all. The funeral service for Ed will be held at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, 3115 P St. NW, Washington, DC 20007 at 10 a.m. on September 15, 2018 and followed by a reception at the church. In lieu of flowers, donations are requested to be made to The Salvation Army or the Capital Area Food Bank.
