Mr. Bassler attended Belleville Area College, Belleville, IL, and worked in the reference department of the Belleville Public Library. Greg enjoyed growing roses and was very family oriented. He loved spending time with his siblings, and the nieces and nephews considered him “one of the greatest uncles ever.” He was a huge fan of John Denver and had a passion for country music.
Greg was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence P. and Marcella A., nee Schilling, Bassler; and two sisters, Sharon (Bob) Dietz, and Rosemary (Bob) Ivy.
Surviving are his eight siblings, Kenneth (Eileen) Bassler, David (Janice) Bassler, Michael (Marianne) Bassler, Jim Bassler, John (Terri) Bassler, Bonnie (John) Kistner, Pat (Don) Miller, and Pam (Steve) Erwin; and many dear nieces and nephews.
