Basil Dimitri Karas, 59, of Squirrel Hill and formerly Castle Shannon, on December 16th, 2023. Son of the late William and Kay Karas of Castle Shannon. Survived by two cats, Saturn and Mimas, and many dear friends. Basil was a talented vocalist who performed in several local venues and was a repository of information on music and cinema. An eclectic fellow with a wide variety of interests, talents, perspectives, and the best stories, he was a beloved friend who will be deeply missed. There will be no service, but all are welcome to attend an informal memorial gathering/celebration of life at The Pitch on Butler in Lawrenceville at a date to be determined, to share memories and send him off collectively with love and peace. Please contact Andrew at 412-320-5908 if you'd like to attend.
