Resident Spotlight: Dave and Cecelia Basarich

December 15, 2016

Posted in

Dave and Cecelia (and their toy Yorkies “Shep” and “Sassy”) moved to our University Village cottage neighborhood this past summer. They are loving life here and spread their enthusiasm everywhere they go. Cecelia says that they moved to UV in order to maintain an active lifestyle and they participate in most of the activities offered. (Yes, they really do!) If something is going on, that is where you will find them! Dave and Cecelia were married on Valentine’s Day, 1981. They each have two children, with 12 grandkids and 2 great-grandkids between them. Before moving back to the Tulsa area in 2006, they lived in Florida for 12 years. Dave is a veteran from the Vietnam War. He was an avid pool player and participated in competitive pool tournaments. He also loves golf and has enjoyed the golf outings here at University Village. He and Cecelia also spent many years square dancing together. Who knew? In addition to staying physically fit, Cecelia loves to do embroidery, make wreaths, and many other craft items. She has an entire room in their cottage just for her crafts. Something you may not know is that the Basarich’s owned a pool hall. They ran the “Study Hall”, as they called it, for three years in Claremore. It was a place for kids and families to come for something to do. Teens would come after school to play some 8-Ball and get some “cues” from Dave. But they did have some rules! (no alcohol, no cussing) Nevertheless, place was full, 365 days a year! Dave and Cecelia still remain in contact with some of those kids, now adults, to this day due to the positive impact that the couple had on their young lives. So, if you have not met the Basarichs, you soon will. They know no strangers and offer encouragement and friendship to everyone they meet.
