1963 - 2018

It is with great sadness and full hearts that we announce the passing of William “Bill” Robert Baxter, of Kamloops, BC. After a 4 year battle with Multiple Sclerosis, and a short diagnosis of stage 4 brain cancer, Bill’s fight ended at the hospice on February 20th, 2018 surrounded by loved ones.

Bill was born on April 20th, 1963 in Montreal, Quebec. He lives on in his wife, Marlene, his two children Melinda (Tyler) and Cole, and his granddaughter, Orianna. Bill’s memory is cherished and held close by his mother, Sheila, siblings John (Robi), Suzanne (Bob), and Colleen (Russ), father, William, and numerous nieces, nephews, family members, and close friends.

Bill will be remembered for his infectious smile, wonderful sense of humor, strong loyalty to his word, wild attitude that kept us on our toes, and as a generous man always willing to step up to the plate. A friend to many, he is missed beyond measure.

A celebration of life will be held for Bill on April 28th, 2018 at 2:00 PM at The Dunes in Kamloops, BC. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Hospice.
