Obituary for Delmus "Pat" Basden

Delmus “Pat” Basden, 90, of Kinston, went to be with his Lord and Savior on Friday, October 6, 2017. Pat was born March 16, 1927 in Duplin County to the late Mack Basden and Luna Williams Basden. In addition to his parents, Pat was preceded in death by a daughter, Cathy Joy Basden.

Pat proudly served his country in the United States Navy and later retired from Kinston Shirt Factory. He enjoyed working on cars and racing at the Kinston Drag Strip. Pat loved working in the yard and piddling on projects around the house. He enjoyed trips to the mountains and a good watermelon or piece of pineapple cake would bring a smile to his face.

Pat is survived by his wife of almost 68 years, Mildred Small Basden; two daughters, Brenda Cobb and husband, Martin, and Debbie Skinner and husband, Steve; son, Ricky Basden; five grandchildren, Toni Ann, Kevin, Melissa, Scott, and Stephanie; and thirteen great-grandchildren.
