Robert Worsley Baxter born Sept 7, 1936 in Bralorne BC passed suddenly at home January 22nd. Survived by Yvonne loving wife of 61 years, son Aaron and partner Cori, daughter Adrienne, his beloved grandson Noah, sister in law Johanne and brother in law Len Kropielinski and their family and many cherished friends who will miss him.
Bob was a graduate architect from UBC and practiced in Vancouver, Calgary and Victoria. He specialized in heritage restoration, hospital planning, home and museum design and also served on several historical committees in Victoria.
A longtime member of the RVYC he enjoyed sailing and cruising the coast aboard his beloved sailboat Yara. As the family fixer and craftsman he embraced a variety of challenges including a boat building project especially close to his heart for Noah.
We will have a gathering to honour Bob at a later date. Love you Gramps...
