His daughters are Mrs. Ivan (Lois) Woodburn of Ogden and Mrs. Ronald (Afton) McMillan of Rock Springs. Three brothers, Edward, Lawrence and William Baxter, all of Ogden, also survive.

Funeral services were held Tuesday morning at the L.D.S. church with Bishop William Gibbs of Reliance in charge.

Pallbearers were William Banks, who was associated with Mr. Baxter in the store at Reliance for many years; Hugh Harrigan, James Kelley, Eugene Lane, William Sellers and Luke Harrigan of Green River.
