Raymond Basnett

Raymond K. Basnett, 84, formerly of Hutchinson, died Saturday (Dec. 20, 2013), at the Hopemont Hospital in Terra Alta following an extended illness.

Raymond was employed by the Fischer Foundry in Hutchinson for many years. He was an avid sports fan and coached Little League baseball in Hutchinson.

He was the last surviving member of his immediate family, having also been preceded in death by four sisters and brothers-in-law, Margaret L. and Richard Kniceley, Naomi B. and Mitchell Roshinski, Betty L. and Bill Morris, and Eleanor J. and Bill Shaver; three brothers, Edward C. Basnett and wife Ruby, Richard T. “Buddy” Basnett and Alvin Marshall Basnett, who died in infancy.
