Reginald Baxter

December 26, 1949 ~ April 12, 2021 (age 71)


Baxter, Reginald - It is with great sadness that the Baxter family announces the passing of Reginald Baxter on Monday, April 12th, 2021 at his home in Gravenhurst.

Our Dad Reggie, was welcomed to Heaven by his loving Angel wife Marie and into the arms of our Lord Jesus. Cherished father to Raymond, Martin, Stephen, Tara (Bruce Mallory) and his most special daughter Shauna. Much loved Granda to Bridie, Kieran and Liam of Dundas. Beloved brother to Eleanor, Kim and the late Sandra, Sharon and Jean of Ireland. He will be dearly missed by all. The family is extremely proud of his many years of service as a paramedic at Muskoka Ambulance. He received a card from his colleagues during his illness and was deeply moved by this.

A warm thank you to his entire team of Homecare Nurses, especially to Susan and Christina who both went the extra mile to treat our dad with the respect and dignity he deserved. Also, to the team of Respiratory Therapists that made our dad feel comfortable throughout his time at home. Thank you to the Oncology team at Juravinski Cancer Center in Hamilton. Especially to Dr. Ellis and nurse Pauline, the honesty and dedication you showed to our dad will not be forgotten. Lastly to the Radiation Team at RVH in Barrie, our dad always spoke highly of you all.

“Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day. Unseen, unheard, but always near, Still loved, still missed and very dear” – Irish Blessing
