Our family is deeply saddened to announce the passing of our beloved father.  On Tuesday morning, August 30th, in the presence of his loving family, Leo Basil, aged 89 years, passed away at the Health Sciences Centre after a rich and fulfilling life.

Predeceased by Margaret, his loving wife of 64 years; his parents, Leo and Josephine (nee Hart); brothers John, Alex and Richard; sisters Louise, Carmel and Thelma; mother-in-law Margaret (nee Chafe), father-in-law Jack Wickham; and many special sisters and brothers-in-law.

Left to cherish his memory and celebrate his life are his children: Beverly Tucker (Kyle), Brenda Bursey (Bob), Margaret, Basil Brian, Barbara Chalker (Chris), Bernice Batten (Tony) and Robyn Knott  (Tom); sixteen grandchildren Krista, Adele, Victoria, Scott, Christopher, Stephanie, Maggie, Ben, Nikki, Elizabeth, Ryan, James, Alexandria, Sam, Jacob and Angela; and six great grandchildren Edward, Emily, Hayden, Max, Madilyn and Sophie Grace; his brothers Desmond and Victor; brothers and sisters-in-law Leonard, Carol Ann, Eileen, Frances (David), Lorraine (Gordon), Louise (Spencer), and Kevin; family friend, Albert Pope; special friend Mary Bruneau; and also many beloved nieces, nephews and friends.

Basil was a dedicated and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather who was visited frequently by his family and whose door was always open. He had a kind heart and helped countless people who were in need throughout his life.

Where his children were concerned, he would go to the end of the earth to help, teach and provide them the opportunity to learn the things he felt were important and practical in life and supported them. He was very proud of his family, taking them almost everywhere he went, from Sunday drives for ice cream and tree chopping excursions at Christmas to many summer vacations on and off the island, and even on his errand runs to the shoemaker or the garage – he was always happy to take them along.

He had a firm belief in higher education and felt one was never too old to learn.  He was a consummate advocate for good old fashioned hard work. He showed this by example throughout his life, finishing high school early and entering Memorial at age 15 to pursue a Science Degree. He changed course to obtain a pharmacy diploma but returned to Memorial in 1961 to finish that degree, graduating in 1966.

Upon graduating, he worked with Memorial briefly until he accepted a position to teach Physics at the College of Trades and Technology, where he stayed until his retirement.

In 1977, Basil opened a successful family business, Excel Pharmacy in Churchill Square, along with his wife, Margaret and upon selling the business in 1990, continued to work in local and rural pharmacies until age 80, earning an Honourary Life Membership Award in 2012.

He was a tireless advocate for his many passions.  He loved baseball, having played in his early years with the Wildcats and keeping a keen interest throughout his life, rarely missing a Blue Jays game.  He was a photography and home film enthusiast. He was very passionate about the conservation and heritage of old St. John’s, where he grew up as a child.

Believing strongly in keeping fit, he was an avid runner, participating and supporting local events as well as marathons outside the province. His running days came to an end after suffering a stroke in his 70s, at which time he took up swimming, taking life saving courses, and became well known at the Mews Centre where he swam every morning until he was 86.

He loved Irish and traditional Newfoundland music and step dancing, taught ballroom dancing into his 80s and was a self taught guitarist before his arthritic days.

Always loving the outdoors, Basil spent time fishing and enjoying working at his cabin on Juniper Lake. He immensely enjoyed gardening and, as a result of his science background, was methodical in his cataloguing and recording of the progress of his plants.

He had a passion for antique cars, especially his many Volvos. He loved to work on them, completing regular maintenance himself. He particularly loved driving his Volvo P1800.

He had a keen interest in birds, feeding peanuts to the blue jays and crows and making his own homemade recipes for his feathered friends while following bird enthusiast Bruce MacTavish.

We will miss him more than words can say and will hold his memory very dear to our heart. We hope he is flying high like an eagle with his lifelong soulmate, our beloved mother, whom he missed so much.

We would like to thank the nursing staff of 5 South B for their kindness and care during Dad’s stay. In addition, thank you to the many physicians who took care of Dad during his illness, in particular Drs. Butler, O’Brien and Morkar. A special thank you to his family physician, Dr. Matthew Verge. We would also like to express our thanks to Dad’s very kind neighbours, the Morgan and Young families.

The family will receive visitors at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road, on Tuesday, September 6 from 7 pm to 9 pm; Wednesday, September 7 from 11 am to 2 pm and from 7 pm to 9 pm. Funeral service will be held at the Carnell Memorial Chapel on Thursday, September 8 at 1 pm.  Due to the ongoing Covid19 virus, the family requests that masks be worn at visitation and service. Inurnment will follow at Belvedere Cemetery, Newtown Road.

The funeral service will be live streamed for those who cannot attend.

Flowers gratefully accepted or donations in Basil’s memory can be made to The Gathering Place.

Brenda and family,
I was saddened to hear of your dear father’s passing. He certainly had a full life. I thoroughly enjoyed working side by side with him at Excel Pharmacy. I didn’t feel like an employee, I felt like part of the family. I remember being included in family functions. But one of the sweetest most meaningful memories I have, was when you and your father sold Excel. You had the little antique store downstairs. There were two dining chairs that I had admired. Damian went to the auction and acted as a bidder on my behalf for those two chairs. Sadly, I did not get them.
It was Christmas Eve, after working at SDM that I came home to two huge boxes wrapped in Christmas paper. What could these gifts be? I will NEVER forget the feeling when I opened these boxes to find the two chairs that I had loved so much. It was such a kind, thoughtful gesture on you and your fathers part. I cried. The feeling of being appreciated and loved was overwhelming. I thought it was the nicest thing that anyone had ever done for me. I still have those chairs in my home and I tell this story to those that sit on them.
So as I am sure, you are very fortunate to have so many many memories and stories. You were blessed to have such a kind man as your father.

To Brenda @ Family,
Sincere condolences on the recent passing of your dear father, Basil. As a pharmaceutical representative I met him first at Excel and noticed that his interest extended beyond just the professional side. I always considered him a friend. Years later I spoke with him many times on the Pippy Park ski trails and fairly recently at the Village Mall Kiosk with his loving wife where he was engaging and reaching out to his many friends as they passed by.. A truly exceptional person, and no doubt a great friend and mentor to his children and grandchildren.

Margie, Stephanie and family. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of your dad, Margie and your grandfather, Stephanie. Such a beautiful tribute to him. Hugs to you both, Anne-Marie Wells

To all of the Walsh Family,

Brenda and family, while it’s sad when our parents pass away, may you find comfort in the wonderful memories you have of your dad.,
Our thoughts are with you all, Rest In Peace, Mr. Walsh,
Heather and Frank Ryan

When our Bob died, Basil captured what he meant to us his family and, indeed, to all who had the privilege of knowing him when he said, “The world needs more Bobs.” Never could we express more aptly what Basil meant to his family and to all of us than to echo his words, “The world needs more Basils!”
To Basil’s family:__rejoice in your memories of such an exceptional man! God Bless you all. Rest In Peace, Basil.

Joan and Gerard Rumsey

One of the good ones

I was so sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Bas. He was always very kind to me. My first job ever was at Excel Pharmacy. Uncle Bas would pick me up in the morning and we would drive to the pharmacy, where I thought it was so amazing that he could take out the keys and open the door to his own company. The expereience of working at the pharmacy was very inspiring to me and is a big reason why I got into the world of business. My sincere condolences to all of my family. members. I know how much Uncle Bas will be missed and I wish we could be there.

The Family of Basil:
Sorry to hear of your fathers passing. We have many fond memories of working with Basil and many enjoyable birthday functions we shared at the College of the North Atlantic.

To Bev, Brenda, Muggy, Barb, Bernice,Robyn and Basil…….. I am truly saddened by your dad’s passing, as I know he was such a supportive and loving father to you all while you were growing up, and continued to be there for you all for the rest of his life. I spent a lot of time at your house on Mayor Ave., where the door was always open and you felt welcomed by both your mom and your dad. Indeed, that was my second home really…..fifty five years ago…..and I was privileged to share in your lives as you were growing up. I have lots of great memories and I know you all do too. Your dad was a kind and gentle soul who helped create a wonderful legacy of the same traits in his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. It is hard to let such a person go, but he is with your mom now and they are both beaming with pride at their beautiful family…….their creation and pride and joy. You all have a lifetime of memories that will continue to bring a smile to your faces as time goes by and that is one of the gifts your father left for you. Love you all…..Deborah.

Our deepest condolences on your loss. We never had a chance to meet Leo, however we’ve had the pleasure to get to know a large part of your family.

Deepest sympathy to all the familyAlways enjoyed my chats with Basil whwnever i was in the store

Barb and family,
We are thinking of you all at this time. I cannot remember time before our family was forever tied to the Walsh family. Blessed. It certainly isn’t easy losing a parent but comforting to see that the love and warmth embodied by Basil and Margaret lives on in their children and grandchildren. Mr. Walsh always had a smile whenever I would see him. I knew he was a hard working individual but his legacy listed here is surely something to be proud of. Simply amazing. May he rest in peace.
With love,
Beth & Majid Shadmand

I’m sorry to hear of your dad’s passing. Mr Walsh was always kind, soft spoken and friendly whenever I visited his pharmacy or ran into him around town. He and your mom always stopped to say hello and ask about my family.. My thought and prayers are with all of you.

To the Walsh Family,

We want to offer our deepest sympathies for the loss of your beloved Bas. Many years ago I worked with Bev at Nfld. Hydro (Philip Place). I really enjoyed our conversations in which Bev talked kindly about her father and her children Victoria (Tori as she called her) and Christopher.

My husband, Gerard, worked at the College of the North Atlantic for many years and knew Bas well and thought of him as a well-respected and honourable man.

Please know that over time your grief will gradually be eased by your loving and lasting memories of Bas.

So sorry to read of Basil’s death. I first met Basil in 1983 when I started teaching Auto Body classes at College of Trades. Basil quickly introduced himself and his Triumph Spitfire to me. I actually inherited the Spitfire from the previous instructor. We became great friends during our time at the College and had many conversations about cars and family. It was my pleasure to meet and enjoy helping out Basil with his projects which included Spitfire, Volvos and even a Ford Pinto .he was a true gentleman.

So sorry to hear of your loss. Basil’s wife Margie is cousin to my wife Martha but more than that was a very dear friend to both my parents, Harold & Jean Couch. Basil welcomed them into his life when they first moved to Newfoundland from England and played a huge part in helping them to share their passion for sequence ballroom dancing. In St. John’s at the Mews Centre and other local venues. Although my parents left Newfoundland in 1999 they remained in touch until their passing and were lucky to meet up a few times when they would return to Newfoundland for vacation.. He was a true friend and will surely be missed by many. Mike & Martha Couch.
