Jimmie Lee Baxter
Jimmie Lee BaxterPondJimmie Lee Baxter, 81 of Radnor died Saturday, September 19, 2020 at Marion General Hospital.

He was born February 18, 1939 in Radnor to the late Everett and Leona (Jacobs) Baxter. He was also preceded in death by his first wife, Irma (Hawk) Baxter, a granddaughter, Elizabeth Kuba, a brother, David Baxter, and a sister, Juanita Lowe.

On January 25, 1980 he married the former Christine Colby in the Radnor Baptist Church and she survives in Radnor.

Jimmie was a farmer in Radnor. He had worked at Penry Stone Quarry in Radnor and at B. F. Goodrich in Green Camp until his retirement. He enjoyed spending time with his family. Most of all, he loved going back to the pond to his prayer rock, feeding the fish and talking to his turtle, Franklin. He loved when the family would gather at the pond for swimming, fishing and cookouts. For many years, every Saturday you could find him making apple cider, not just for himself, but for people from all around.

Jimmie was a member of the Radnor Baptist Church where he served in many capacities including Trustee. He loved going to church and did so until he was no longer able. He served as 4-H advisor for many years. He loved antique tractors, enjoyed cutting firewood, riding dirt bikes and taking trips to Florida. He instilled a great work ethic in his children and always lent a helping hand to those that needed it. Jimmie leaves behind quite a legacy of a loving family and a love of God. He was a jokester with his grandchildren and made many memories with them.

Besides his wife, Christine, he is survived by children, Terry (Gerri) Baxter, Radnor; Linda Hickman, Delaware; Cindy Kuba, Delaware; Jennifer (Rick) White, Columbus; Barry (Shari) Baxter, Prospect; Bill (Karen Cimiluea) Hughes, New Albany; Eric Hughes, Marion; Tammy (Todd) Rosebrough, Florida; 19 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren; a brother, Bryan Baxter, Radnor; a sister, Marianne Marlor, Dublin.

Friends may call on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from noon to 3:00 PM at the Radnor Baptist Church. Graveside services will follow in the Radnor Cemetery with Pastor Andrew Bebee officiating.

Memorial gifts may be made to the Radnor Baptist Church, 4050 Radnor Road, Radnor, OH 43066

Over the past 14 years we came to know him as “Mr. Jim”. Everything stopped when Mr. Jim rolled in on his gator. They were visits of harassment, hugs for the kids, conversations of what was going on that day, and in the world, and an occasional white lie of insisting to the kids that he was chewing raisins. He was the first to make us feel apart of this community, and we will all miss him dearly. We are so very sorry for your family’s loss.

Jim was the first to welcome us to the neighborhood when we moved in 5 years ago. My first experience making apple cider was shared with him, which I will always remember. We will surely miss the occasional visits from him riding over on his gator and growing to know the kind, and friendly man that he was. Prayers for you and your family! So very sorry for your loss!

Uncle Jimmie was just a very good, good man.  I am so glad that I had him as an uncle. I am so sorry for the loss of this wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather.  He would have no regrets about the life he lived and now he is in heaven.

I have many fond memories of Jimmie. He always made others feel loved, valued and the center of his attention. His children learned this well from him as today they greet even a stranger the same way. I loved when the community gathered during apple cider making days. Real down-home fun and simplicity. We all need to go back to more of his and his families ways of living life loving others.
