Long-time Ruston businessman William Sanders “Bill” Baskin is being remembered today as a one-of-a-kind individual who was compassionate, engaged in his community and enjoyed visiting with friends.

“He was one of those people you meet that’s not like everybody else,” former Ruston Mayor Dan Hollingsworth said. “He was very patriotic and real strong in his Christian beliefs. He was devoted to the community.”

Baskin, founder of Ruston Glass & Mirror, died July 18 at age 93. Funeral services are at 4 p.m. Saturday at First Baptist Church.
