It is with great sadness that the family of Baxter Lloyd Crocker, 98, of Lunenburg, and formerly of Heart’s Delight,Trinity Bay, NL., announces his passing on Monday, November 26, 2018, at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, Lunenburg.
Born in Heart’s Delight, Trinity Bay, NL., he was the son of the late Arthur and Deliah (Sooley) Crocker.
Baxter was a hard working man who wore many hats during his working career. From working in the iron ore mines, in the forests as a lumberjack, to driving taxi as well as owning his own store. He was truly a jack of all trades. In his spare time, he was an avid gardener, having planted well over 2000 tulip bulbs on his property. He will long be remembered for his sense of humour and kindness. He truly was a wonderful and loving husband, father and grandfather.
Baxter is survived by his daughter Elizabeth (Stephen) Moskatov, Little Shemogue, NB; sons, David (Marina), Peterborough, ON, Sydney (Barbara Scholz), Mississauga, ON as well as eight grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren.
Besides his parents, he is predeceased by his wife, Jessie Henderson (Kennedy) Crocker; son Derek and his sister Annie.
Funeral arrangements entrusted to the Dana L. Sweeny Funeral Home, 11213, Hwy #3, Lunenburg. A memorial service will be held in St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, Heart’s Delight, Trinity Bay, NL., at a later date.
In lieu of flowers memorial donations made to St. Matthew’s Anglican Church, Heart’s Delight, NL. would be appreciated by the family.
