Special thanks to all the staff at PVT who provided Baxter with exceptional care, concern, love and joy. We will be forever grateful for you all. Also, would like to thank Dr. Vinod Patel and team for giving Baxter a sense of purpose and well-being during his declining health.

Baxter's love for life, his humor, and his ability to connect with all he met through his boating days in Holyrood and Trinity Bay, his many fishing and hunting trips in central Newfoundland, his work life in his family business, Maggie's Bakery, his time at Woolworths and Robin Hood Flour were the joys of his life. His caring, kind, generous heart, and colorful personality will remain with us all and will be greatly missed.
