Blake Dean Baxter Sr., sadly left us on Monday, May 9, 2022.

He was known for his optimism, generosity, intelligence and happy-go-lucky attitude toward life. Blake loved the outdoors and was a serious sportsman. His interests included surfing, golfing, tennis, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, hiking and dirt biking. Blake’s career in financial planning spanned four decades. He will always be remembered for his big smile and happy heart.

Blake was predeceased by his father, Dean Baxter. He is survived by his wife, Ramona Jensen Baxter, his sons, Blake Baxter Jr. and Guy Baxter, two grandsons, his mother, Carolyn Welch Baxter Chapman, stepfather David Chapman, four sisters and brothers-in-law, and numerous nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.

I am so sad. I remember the day he welcomed me to his family's house for dinner. Wishing my sincere condolences to Carolyn, Ramona and all his family.


My deepest and heartfelt condolences to Blake's family and the many people that were entertained by, and loved his unique spirit. I don't ever recall Blake being upset. I guess he just understood that life was for living and his happy-go-lucky demeanor is one thing I will always remember and appreciate about Blake.

However, the thing I will most remember is how deeply he loved his family (and his friends). Being a father of 3 boys myself, I was especially attuned to the way he beamed, with extreme pride, about his 2 sons. He was just so proud and I am grateful to have experienced and connected with this part of Blake.

May we all find peace in our faith that we'll see Blake and other loved ones again.
