William Blakemore Saxton

Virginia Beach - William Blakemore Saxton passed away March 17, 2014 in Sentara Norfolk General Heart Hospital. Our gracious thanks to all the wonderful staff who cared so diligently for him.

"Bill" was born April 10, 1945 in New Rochelle, N.Y. and was raised in Newport News, VA. He is survived by his wife of 43 years, Sue Rittenhouse Saxton, his daughter, Britta Winston and his son-in-law Eric Winston and grandchildren, Blakemore, Brooke and Keaton Winston, who were the lights of his life!

Bill was proud to serve two tours of duty in Viet Nam as a "Seabee" and worked for 27 years as a carman and inspector for both Santa Fe Railroad in California and with Norfolk and Southern Railroad in Norfolk.

Bill was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and neighbor and his sense of humor and laugh will be missed by all.
