He was em­ployed at Cana­dian Tire in Hal­i­fax at the time of his pass­ing. He loved his job and the many friends he made there.

He was pre­de­ceased by his grand­fa­ther, Carlton Bax­ter.

He is sur­vived by his par­ents, Peter and Tammy; grand­par­ents – Adri­enne Bax­ter-Tin­g­ley, Bon­nie MacKay, Gary Jack­son, and Jerry He­bert (Sharon); Aunts – Grace Jarvis (Dave) and El­iz­a­beth Bax­ter; Un­cles – Bruce Bax­ter and Daniel Walker; clos­est cousins – Leah Ler­oux (Ryan) and Dan McMana­man (Jenny), Natasha (Dave) and Jor­dan Jarvis and many special aunts, un­cles, and ex­tended fam­ily.
