Scott Lee Baxter, age 75 of Demorest (formerly of Escondido, CA), passed away on October 11, 2023 surrounded by his loved ones.
Born in San Diego, California on March 10, 1948, Mr. Baxter was the son of the late Harry and Dorothy Dutcher Baxter. In addition to his parents, Mr. Baxter is preceded in death by sister Susan Wentz and brother-in-law Leroy Wentz, father and mother-in-law, Joe and Alexandria Nix, sister-in-law, Bernice Nix Ayers, and special nephew Ethan Scott Nix.
Survivors include his beloved wife, Cheryl Nix Baxter of Demorest, nephew Richard Wentz (Linda), nieces Karen Jacobsen (Tony), Kristen Petite, Robin Butts (Tom) and Sandy McElhenney (Rich), brothers-in-law Joe Nix (Victoria), Ray Nix (Teresa), and Alcide “Scooter” Nix (Carrie), his nieces and nephews by marriage, as well as numerous great nieces, great nephews and extended family members.
Mr. Baxter was a retired civil engineer with the City of Escondido, California. He was a lifetime bowler with many perfect games and championships. He enjoyed traveling, photography and cycling. He loved all types of music and enjoyed performing Karaoke. His dry and quirky sense of humor kept everyone laughing.
The family would also like to express their gratitude to caregivers Tonya Oglesby, brother-in-law, Scooter Nix, and niece Alexandria “Lexi” Nix Erwin. Many thanks and appreciation to both Northeast Georgia Hospice and Amedisys Hospice for the love and compassion shown to them during this time.
