Espinoza’s father passes

January 28, 2011 • Local News

The father of a local lawmaker and business owner died Thursday of health complications following a battle with cancer. Roland Basmeson, 80, was father to Nora Espinoza, a Roswell Republican serving in the state House of Representatives.

“He was just a great man — very giving and very kind,” Espinoza said. “I know he’s in a better place … (but) it’s just one of those things in your life you do not want.” The lawmaker said she spent a week with her father at his home in Orlando prior to the start of the legislative session. Basmeson was a Korean War veteran.
