Robert Baxter April 3,1927 - February 23,2013 Bob was predeceased by his infant son Darrell in 1960 and remembered with so much love by his wife Beverley, sons Kenneth, Paul, Darren and Bill and their families. He was and will remain the wind beneath our wings.

Bob was very involved in the formation of the new Province wide ambulance service or Emergency Health Services in 1974. He was also instrumental in forming the first ever neonatal transport team staffed with paramedics in 1976 and which is now known as the Infant Transport Team and the first of its kind in the world. He was so proud of the ITT all through the years and their work became an example to follow in many countries. In 1980, he also played a part in the inclusion of the Paramedic Training Program at the Justice Institute now situated in New Westminster. In latter years he drove as a volunteer for the Masonic Cancer Car program to which he would have appreciated any donations.

Bob was a modest, practical, kind and good man, always fair and caring to his employees, and his sons were his best friends, his wife was his partner in love and life. He will be missed by us all beyond belief.

At Bob's request there will not be a funeral. On a calm, sparkling, sunlit day in Howe Sound we will scatter his ashes off Gambier Point where he and his family spent many happy years.
