Hi everyone,
Sam Bass was my father. I just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know of his passing and how much this group meant to him.
Last Sunday dad lost a battle he had been fighting and took his own life.
Anyone that knew Dad knew him as a lovable goofball with a giant heart that would give you the shirt of his own back.
Unfortunately, now one of the most beautiful and helpful human beings I’ve had the pleasure of knowing didn’t reach out for help when he needed it most.
My sister and I both served, and along with everyone in this group I’m sure we’ve all had more than our fair share of Friends lost to mental illness. I can tell you nothing I’ve experienced yet hits you quite like when it’s your father.
It’s ok to not be ok.
Please, please, please ask your mates how they’re doing, know YOU ARE NOT ALONE, and reach out to someone when you need.
Given the current circumstances we won’t be holding a funeral as such. Rather Sam will be cremated and once life is a bit less COVID crazy we scatter his ashes in Shoal Bay some time next year. Anyone is welcome.
Thanks to everyone in this group for allowing me to post and know that he loved you all and was on here multiple times a day.
Please feel free to send me a message on here if you feel you need and I’ll let everyone know more about the final goodbye when we do.
Regards
Mike Bass

Hello Mike Bass. I knew your father, as he came every morning to Nice Cafe for his coffee with a group of friends. I called them the Four Musketeers. Your father, Sam, was a true gentleman, and at times, absolutely cheeky and enjoyed speaking to me in “Double Entendre. He was a character, on it’s own. When I heard of his passing, I was devasted, as I lost a true friend and a mentor. Time heals everything- but for me, there will be a special place for him, during my lifetime. He had a beautful soul. Rest in peace, dear… Read more »
