Basil was an amazing person who fell on hard times. His death is nothing short of a tragedy and the path he traveled could easily be treaded by many other lovely lost souls. May his family find peace and those who blindly judge find knowledge.

This man article is not right I worked with him in 2008 and saw and spoke with him many times after I left mcdonalds he never seemed like he had a mental problem. And I find the term retard highly offensive. Basil was an awesome man.

I worked with him up at southridge in 2008 he was an awesome guy I saw him a few times after I left up there. It's sad to hear about this about someone who I thought was awesome to work with.
