Steven Alfred Bassett of Littlefork, Minnesota, formerly of Mora, passed away on Friday, August 25, 2017 at his home after a long battle with cancer.  He was 54 years old.

Steve was born on April 3, 1963 in Kanabec County to parents Don and Lorraine (Lammers) Bassett.  Born the fifth of six children, he grew up on the family farm in Peace Township and attended Mora High School through the 10th grade.  He enjoyed playing softball for various teams in his younger years.  Steve attended Pine Technical College to learn building trades and pole barn building.  He worked for Midwest Framers in Burnsville for several years before returning to Mora where he continued his building skills.  Steve also worked for Boatel in Mora, building catamarans.  In 1998, Steve moved to Littlefork where he continued to work in the building trades until his passing.

Steve always loved to be outdoors, whether working, hunting, fishing, or just kicking back having a drink or two with the guys. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Steve is preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his brothers, Jim, Tim, and Doug (Clarise); sisters, Annette (Gary) Lazinski and Audrey (Dale) Clementson; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

  1. You are no longer in pain and can continue your trade up there with your other family and friends. Watch over your family and those that loved you.

  2. I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to all of Steven’s family. For right now, there’s no detour around grief, no shortcut through mourning. However, 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us, “… power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry, or that we forget. It means we recover. We recover because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28 which says, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection. That is our amazing hope! The Bible likens our hope to an anchor. Just like an anchor stabilizes a ship, our hope stabilizes us and keeps us from drowning in overwhelming sadness. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as, “… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort be your comfort now, during this time of sorrow.
