Wichita Eagle, Thursday, June 18, 1981

R. Baldwin, Dog Breeder, Cessna Worker

By JOE GANDELMAN
Staff Writer

Royce Baldwin worked as an experimental aircraft supervisor at Cessna Aircraft Co., but his prime passions were working with his hands and with animals.

"That's how he spent his spare time," said his sister Betty Sims. "He was never still. His hands were always doing something."

Baldwin, who along with his wife, Meredith, also owned Baldmere Kennels at their home, 1953 S. 127th St. East, died Monday. He was 61.

Baldwin was born in Wichita Nov. 20, 1919. He graduated from North High School, and while a student there began work for the Wichita Beacon, supervising newspaper carriers. In 1937 he started work at Cessna.

From 1945 to 1947 he left Cessna to go into business with his brother, Ray. They ran Baldwin Fixtures, which made store window displays.

Survivors include his wife, Meredith; daughter, Karen Ann O'Daniel, of Hollywood, Calif.; sister, Betty Sims, and brother, Raymond, of Derby.

A service will be 10 a.m. today at the Cochran Mortuary. A memorial has been established with the Sedgwick County Heart Association.
