Horace L. "Sam" Bass Jr., a residential real estate salesman who enjoyed boating on the Chesapeake Bay, died of cancer Sunday at Genesis Spa Creek Nursing Home. The Annapolis resident was 73.

Born in Greenville, N.C., and raised in Clarksburg, W.Va., he was a first lieutenant in the Air Force and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Richmond. He was a 1963 graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law.

After moving to Catonsville many years ago, Mr. Bass founded Professional Real Estate and had offices on Frederick Road and Nunnery Lane.

In the late 1970s, he moved to Annapolis and was affiliated with Coldwell Banker real estate until his death. He sold homes and was a member of the Maryland Association of Realtors.

Mr. Bass was a member of the Annapolis and Podickory Point yacht clubs. He enjoyed teaching his grandchildren about the bay and marine life, his family said. He owned a 22-foot Mako powerboat, the Nanbobkat.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. today at St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, 1601 Pleasant Plains Road in Annapolis, where he was a communicant.

Survivors include his wife of 50 years, the former Anne Clark; three daughters, Kathy Clevenger of Annapolis, Elizabeth "Bobbi" Heller of Arnold and Nancy Wright of Severna Park; and six grandchildren.
