Our practice is filled with sadness to hear of the passing of Eddie Basha. Eddie has been a friend of ours for almost 40 years. He was an integral part of the decision to locate our practice in Chandler and he will be missed greatly. As a Chandler Hospital board member, Eddie spearheaded fundraising efforts community-wide to bring up-to-date equipment to the hospital and our OB/GYN patients in 1976. As we all know, his philanthropy continued throughout his life.

Although he is remembered as a businessman and an employer throughout the state, he was also deeply involved in the Chandler community and making Arizona a great place to live. We are blessed to have such a great man as a champion for Arizona.

We all remember his larger-than-life personality in his commercials, but we also applaud the private man who was known as a champion of business, a leader in education and a charitable, giving man. Our practice, along with all of Arizona, will miss Eddie Basha.
