Robert Lynn “Skeet” Baxter

Robert Lynn “Skeet” Baxter, 70, of Iowa Park, passed away Saturday, May 27, 2017.

Arrangements are entrusted to Owens & Brumley Funeral Home of Wichita Falls.
A son of the late James Oscar and Lilly Mae Baxter, Robert was born on February 3, 1947 in Altus, Oklahoma. He served our country proudly in the United States Navy from 1964 until 1968. Robert loved anything that had to do with nature, and always had a story to tell and a joke to make you laugh.

Along with his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife, Leona Kay Baxter; and three brothers and two sisters.

He is survived by his son, James Robert Baxter and wife Dana; his daughter, Twanya Stone and husband Carl; his grandkids, Tiffany Williams and Jasin Monk, Anthony and Brea Roberts, Zander Trainque, Brandon Stone, and Carley Stone; his great-granddaughter, Phallon Monk; his sister-in-law, Barbara Baxter; and his aunts, Georgia Camp, and Pauline Houchins.
