Baxter Lemmond, died at his home in Bon Air, Virginia, after a brave battle with a lengthy illness on September 30, 2008.  He is survived by his beloved partner, Yvonne Lee Travis; his only daughter, Elise Cabell Chevalli¬‚ Lemmond; a brother and his wife, the Honorable and Mrs. William Park Lemmond, Jr.; nephews, a niece, cousins and many friends.   He is also survived by his loved Maluccan Cockatoo, "Hokie."  Baxter was born in Arlington, Virginia, on May 26, 1942.  He graduated from Virginia Tech (Class of '64) with a degree in History and Political Science.  After spending eight years as an investment broker in Richmond, he enrolled in the T. C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond.  He then practiced law in Virginia, Key West and St. George Island, Florida.  He took leave of absence from his law practice to attend VCU Graduate School in 1990 where he graduated with a Master's Degree in Counseling.  An extremely avid Virginia Tech fan (especially football), he could always be found wearing orange and maroon.  He loved to travel and this passion took him to England, his clan's castle in Scotland, northern Europe and the Caribbean.  The celebration of Baxter's life will be held Sunday, October 5, at his church, Christ the King Lutheran, located at 9800 W. Huguenot Road, Bon Air, at 2 p.m.  Friends and family will gather at his home following the service.  In lieu of flowers, please contribute to your favorite charity.
