It is with a heavy heart that we recognize the passing of one of our industry’s true personalities. Gary Bass retired just a few years ago with 30+ years in the insurance world most recently with Arthur J. Gallagher. Gary was not only well known in our small world as an insurance agent, he was a fixture at the Southern Southeastern Annual Meeting taking the mic for a few songs giving our world just a taste of what he was probably best known for, his love of beach music both as a vocalist and as a DJ.
Although retired, he kept up with the industry and had many friends across the region in the cotton ginning world. Gary will definitely be missed. Keep his family in your prayers. Gary was 69.
