Obituary:
Stephen ďTomĒ Basinger Sr, age 71 of Old Orchard Beach, passed away March 26, 2021 at his residence.


Tom was born in Reading, Massachusetts on January 29, 1950 to Jewel and Eleanor Basinger. He grew up in Biddeford, ME, where he graduated from Biddeford High School in 1969. After, he joined the culinary school in the Army. Later, Tom worked as an executive chef at the Cascade Inn in Saco.


In his younger days, Tom enjoyed his softball and bowling leagues, where he passed on his love of sports to his four sons. A diehard sports fan, Tom loved his Notre Dame and enjoyed all things New York, especially his beloved Yankees. He loved watching reruns of old television shows, most notably Westerns. Tom could be happy anywhere with a recliner, his newspapers, and a cold can of Tab.


Tom is predeceased by his parents, brother John Darrell Basinger. Tom is survived by his wife of 44 years, Marlene, their four sons; Stephen Basinger Jr, Darren Basinger, Chad Basinger, and Brad Basinger, his grandchildren; Jacob, Alyssa, Owen, Maximus, Ella, Lily, and Arianna; and one great grandchild, Emma.
