We are at a loss for words. Mr. Bill was a such a kind hearted man with an impeccable sense of humor. We looked forward to seeing him every evening at Dorothy Keck Studio and especially enjoyed our frequent conversations about our children and about life. He was our entertainment to say the least. Always making us laugh. I love the relationship he built with Victoria and Matthew. They truly LOVED Mr. Bill and enjoyed joking with him every evening as we left the studio. They made sure to tell him all about their typical teenage drama. Mr. Bill was such an important person to my children lives and to mine. No words can express the void left in our hearts and the hearts of so many others he has touched. One thing for certain was how much he loved you Mrs. Stephanie and the boys. Y’all will forever be in our hearts.

With much love,
Victoria, Matthew, Leticia

Bill was like a younger brother to so many of us. He was always kind and happy and made me laugh. I have so many memories and funny stories of times spent with Bill and the Basse’s and the extended “family” they created. I ran into Bill and beautiful Stephanie on NYE 2019. I thank God for crossing our paths that evening. Although we couldn’t have known to say good-bye I’ll always be grateful for that last chance to celebrate and two-step with Bill. My prayers are with Stephanie, their boys and my dear friends Leslie and Kelly.

Mr.Bill who he always joked with us was known as Mr.Stepahnie, was the BEST "behind the scenes " presence at Dorothy Keck. What he thought made him less, in our eyes made him that much bigger. We were each others entertainment in the last hours of dance .Mr.Bill was very much loved , and loved Ms Stephanie and his boys ,we always shared stories that went beyond dance.
The Basse family will forever be in our hearts.
