Bruce Baxter

Bruce Alan Baxter, 30, of Columbia passed away on Saturday, June 21, 2022. Born in Lancaster, he was the son of Dina Keller (Lititz) and Brian Baxter (Columbia). Bruce was a 2010 graduate of Milton Hershey School and attended Lehigh University.

Bruce discovered and shared the kindest, tenderest treasures of life, extending them to many others, especially older people including his grandparents, uncles and aunts. As a child, he enjoyed spending time outdoors biking, playing soccer, hunting squirrels, camping and fishing. He was an avid Eagles and Phillies fan. Bruce enjoyed reading about history.

He was, some might say, a “people pleaser” in the best sense of that phrase. Bringing happiness and laughter to others gave him an uncommon pleasure. Bruce had a smile and an infectious laugh that could touch anybody’s heart.

Bruce will be missed everyday by his mother, Dina; father, Brian (Sherry); brother, Brandon Moll of Marietta; two sisters, Aprille Hollister and Jaimie Loraw; his grandparents, Carol and Roger Groce of Mt. Gretna and Richard and Kathy Keller of Carlisle; as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Bobbi Baxter.

A Funeral Service will be held Thursday, July 7, 2022 at 11AM at Charles F. Snyder, Jr. Funeral Home, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA. A visitation with family will be held from 10AM until the time of the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Bruce’s memory may be made payable to Milton Hershey School Alumni Association, 109 McCorkel Road, Hershey, PA 17033, and in the memo line please indicate in Memory of Bruce Baxter 2010.
