Welcome to the memorial page for

Daphne Dumauier Baskin, Sr.

August 25, 1979 ~ August 9, 2019 (age 39)

Daphne Dumauier Baskin, Sr. was born on August 25, 1979 to Dorothy Ballard and Willie Lee Baskin in Monroe, Louisiana. 

He became a member of Faith Harvest Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor James Earl Jackson. On July 21, 2019, Daphne was baptized along with his sons.

On May 15, 2006, he met the love of his life, Natasha Ward. Ten years later, the two were married on May 14, 2016. To this union, two wonderful sons were born, Daphne, Jr. (DJ) and Octavious (Tae-Tae) were the reasons Daphne wore the smile on his face that he was known for. 

Daphne grew up in Humble, Texas, where he attended Humble High School. He was also an avid swimmer and the member of the swim team at Dodson Lake Park Comunity Center. His favorite pastime was listening to music and spending time with his family. One thing that everyone can agree on is that Daphne loved his family. He was the bridge that kept everything together. He will be truly missed. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Willie Lee Baskin; a sister, Jeanie Ross; a grandmother, Bessie Rollins; and a special uncle, Freddie Baskin. 

He leaves to cherish his memories: his wife, Natasha Baskin; his mother, Dorothy Ballard (Leroy); four sons, Daphne Baskin, Jr., Octavious Baskin, and Te'Shawn Ward of Monroe, LA, and Wilijah Naylor of Fort Campbell, KY; his grandmother, Blancha May Baskin; five brothers, Toriano Baskin (Brandy) of Vinton, LA; Doctor Darin Baskin and Deanzo Baskin (Katrina), both of Humble, TX; and Chris Ballard and Harvey Ballard, both of Houston, Texas; four sisters, Latina Grant and Kenyada Singleton, both of Monroe, LA; Sharia Ballard of Houston, TX; and Erica Anderson of California, and a host of aunts, uncles, other relatives, and friends.
