The laughter stopped on April Fool’s Day.
Bryan Keith Basinger, better known as “Corky”, went home on
Saturday, April 1, 2017. Corky was born September 7, 1966 in Paris, Texas
to James and Betty (Boswell) Basinger.
Bryan was a Loving Husband to Julie, Epic father to Matt, Dyllan and Sydney,
Proud grandpa of Forrest and Liam, Devoted son of James and Betty Basinger,
Loyal brother to Rusty, Happy Uncle, Faithful owner of Lola his Basset
Hound, and a Best Friend to everyone he ever met. He knew the importance
of living a life with people you love.
Comedian, Jokester, Prankster, Impersonator, Singer, Dancer – The
list of Corky’s talents goes on and on.
His Impersonations of Rosco P Coltrane, Buford T Justice, Larry the Cable
Guy, and Roy D Mercer, to name a few, kept us all in stitches. If you
listen really closely you can hear him whisper Get-R-Done.
The way he died is just like he lived: he wrote his own rules, he fought
authority and he paved his own way. Bryan loved life; he seized it by
the waist, gave it a big smooch, and said let’s dance.
He enjoyed his family, friends, traveling, cruising, Siegi’s Sausage
Factory, fireworks. He loved to sing Hello Dolly with his family and friends,
now he is singing it with the angels.
In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions be made to
a go fund me account/Corky Basinger memorial fund.
