Bill Bass

Family Connection Ministry | bill@sebastianchurch.com

Bill and wife, Linda, are long time residents of the Treasure Coast of Florida. Bill is retired from a career as manager of a citrus grower business and now enjoys fishing. Don't go fishing with him unless you like fishing with someone who catches all the fish while you watch. Bill is one of the nicest red necks we've ever met. If you have anything that needs fixed, hand him a roll of duct tape and he'll have it fixed in minutes! He often reminds people that NASA uses duct tape to make quick repairs in space.
