Rest In Peace ~ Donald William Baxter

b. September 23,1929    d. February 29, 2016

On June 17th 2016 we attended a "Reception, honoring Don." This was our second event on this day as we also attended the "Celebration of Life" for Vada Carnes, who I blogged about in my post prior to this one. 

We received in the mail a beautiful accordian card inviting us to this reception at St Michael's Parish Hall. There were several photos through out the card, and I was truly grateful to receive this. 

Don served in the United States Army Signal Corps in Korea. He was an electrician  by trade. During his free time he enjoyed inventing things and being challenged. 

Don married Sharon Hicks (my husband's cousin), who passed 15 months prior to him. They were married 60 years, had four children, and six grandchildren.

Don was known as an inventor and loved to tinker with things. He loved being home and enjoyed time with his family. He also loved See's Peanut Brittle, and the family had this on every table at the reception. 

Don, you will be missed by so many! Family, friends and co-workers! You are again with Sharon, may you fly free with her and the angels! 

Thanks for stopping by! 

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
