Local Legend Passes Away

The Catawba Valley lost a sports broadcasting legend Sunday. Bill Bass, a longtime public address announcer in Catawba County, died Sunday at Wake Forest Baptist Hospital in Winston-Salem after a short-term battle with an illness. He was 79. 

“He was a Southern gentleman at heart,” Dr. Carl Starnes said. “He never had a bad thing to say about anybody. There was nobody that didn’t like Bill.
