Voluntown- Samuel J. Bass, 64, ofVoluntown, passed away on Friday Oct. 5, 2018 at the Backus Hospital in Norwich
He was born June 16, 1954 in Live Oak, FL, a son to the late Frances DiMarco
and Reed W. Bass.   Sam served his country honorably within the United States Army and was proud to have worked as a union carpenter for over 25 years before retiring. His
kind-hearted, humorous, and laid back spirit touched so many people's lives. He found pleasure both at a billiards table,  the kitchen table, and working with a table saw or any other carpenter's tool; but especially the table that was surrounded by family brought him the most pride of all.
In addition to his wife Roseann, Samuel is survived by his son Mike and wife
Sarah; daughters Michelle, Debra, brother Jay Bass and wife Linda; Grandchildren Lauren, Ian, Anthony, Sarah, Kayla, Leah, and Nevaeh. Sam (a.k.a Poppie) is predeceased by his brother John Bass and sister Mary Ann Fahnefstock.
