INGRAHAM, Chandler Baxter lt is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Chandler Baxter Ingraham, 90, of Margaree Valley, on Thursday, July 4, 2019. Baxter was born on November 28, 1928 in Margaree Valley, the son of the late Osprey and Mabel (Cranton) Ingraham. He will be lovingly missed by his wife of 64 years, Evelyn Mae (Hart) and daughter, Kendra, Margaree Valley; brother, Walter (Kay) Ingraham, Coxheath; sister, Kaye Fraser, Annapolis Valley; sister-in-law, Kaye Isenor, Port Hastings, and brother-in-law, Edsel (Carol) Hart, Margaree Centre. He is also survived by nieces, Susan (Jim), Amelia, Jackie (Bill), Jocelyne (Daren), Isabella and Callum, Heather (Christian), Jillian (Glen), Adam, Tracy, Kennedy and Katie, and nephews, Robert, Erland (Mary), Reid, Jared (Candice), Scott (Susie), Dustin and Cameron. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by step-father, Clinton Ingraham; twin brother, Layton (Ellie); brothers-in-law, Arthur Fraser and Gord Isenor, and niece, Nancy. Baxter was a farmer, carpenter, mill operator and worked as a pulp scaler for Etheridge & Carmichael for a number of years. He owned and operated Ingraham Bros. Store Museum and was passionate about genealogy. Baxter loved the land and forests. He saw the potential in every tree to become a dish, cane, or a beautiful piece of furniture. He was a member of Wilson United Church and contributed to the heritage of the church as a young man, keeping the fires on for services, cutting, transporting (first with horse and sleigh then with tractor) and storing ice to make ice cream for the many salmon supper/picnics. He attended Sunday School, Young Peoples’ Group, Men’s’ Club and served as an elder and Church Treasurer. He held offices in the Credit Union, Volunteer Fire Dept. He supported with interest the formation of the Sunset Funeral Co-Op. He displayed a great sense of humor with family and friends and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone. He had a special ability to turn a serious situation into an adventure. Two of Baxter's greatest regrets were that he could not dance or sing. He was a dedicated gardener and flowers from your summer garden would be appreciated. In 1983 he walked on a royal red carpet to board the H.M Yacht Britannia at Halifax as we attended a reception, guests of the Prince and Princess of Wales, Prince Charles and Lady Diana. A proud day for Baxter! The family would like to thank Dr. Susan Egar, Dr. Belen, Dr. Bernie MacLean, Dr. J. Hamilton, family and friends, Home Care, Hospital Care, cleaning and kitchen staff of ICMH. Special touches make the illness journey so much easier. Visitation will be held in Wilson United Church Hall, Margaree Centre, Saturday, July 13 from 2-9 p.m. Funeral service will be on Sunday, July 14 at 3 p.m. with Rev. Alicia Cox officiating. Donations in Baxter's memory may be made to Wilson United Church or the Sunset Funeral Co-Op. Funeral arrangements under the direction for Sunset Funeral Co-operative, Margaree Valley.
