BASSETT, Brian Michael Bassett   -  Unexpectedly, at his home with his wife by his side on Sunday, January 15, 2023, at age 76.


Brian Bassett, beloved husband of Jane (nee Browning) for 53 years.


Loving father of Sandy Bassett and Michael Bassett and his wife Meaghan.

Loving grandfather of Raven, Ellie and Ivy. Dear brother of Barry Bassett and Robert Bassett and his wife Jean. He will be fondly remembered by his extended family and many friends.


Brian was a very active member of the Cannington community always striving to make it a better place.


He volunteered with a number of organizations within the community. He was a man who wore many hats so to speak in his working career as an electrician, farmer, race track director of Mosport Speedway and entrepreneur. 


He had a good business sense and always enjoyed the next adventure. The family wishes to thank all the Emergency Services for their quick, kind and compassionate care. 


A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.  Private arrangements. 


In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Cannington Firefighter’s Association would be greatly appreciated by the family.
