Obituary of Paul Warren Baxter
W. Paul Baxter, age 87 of Rothesay, NB passed away peacefully October 23, 2022 at this home. He was born July 10, 1935 in Saint John, NB to F. Addington and Vera (Tippett) Baxter.
As a young man, Paul joined the Royal Canadian Navy as a communicator and later worked as a salesman for Rosser Sales and Equipment. He eventually returned to his passion, the sea, as a crew member on the Irving Miami, where he travelled far and wide. An active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, he enjoyed playing shuffleboard and crib. In his spare time he enjoyed cooking and reading. His stories of a life well lived, filled with adventure, entertained all who were lucky enough to be his audience, and it is indeed a sad day "One night in late October".
He is survived by his son, Christopher Baxter (Carolyn); and daughter, Jean Baxter (Steve); grandchildren: Malcolm Baxter, Madeline Baxter, Piper Magyar, Samuel Magyar, and Frances Magyar; and sister, Carol Moore. He was predeceased by his partner, Roberta Clark; his parents; brothers, Gerald Baxter and Joseph Baxter; and sister-in-law, Nancy (Reevey) Baxter.
He will be missed by many nieces, nephews and other extended family as well as close friends.
Arrangements are under the care of Brenan's Funeral Home, 111 Paradise Row, Saint John, NB (634-7424). In keeping with the family's wishes, there will be no funeral service at this time. Donations in Paul’s memory can be made to Kennebecasis Branch 058, Royal Canadian Legion.
