Rochester: Jacob Bradley Baxter, 28, Formerly of Leroy, unexpectedly left this earth to join his Savior on Monday, August 4, 2014.
Jake was born April 12, 1986 in Upland, CA, the son of Jeffrey and Debra (Griffin) Baxter. Jake was a graduate of Keshequa Central School and attended both SUNY Brockport and Monroe CC. He was a missionary with Campus Ambassadors and was a man of vision and great passions, foremost his relationships with Jesus Christ and his family, seeing young people live their lives fully for Jesus Christ, improving community (especially the Beechwood neighborhood in which he lived), and the ministry at Bliss Summit Bible Camp. Jake was active in playing and officiating wrestling, soccer, and baseball/softball. He was currently a member of four different softball teams in the area.
Jake leaves behind his parents; his loving wife of 5 years, Christina (Barringer) Baxter and their three young children: Ruth Anne, Nadia, and Chase. Also surviving are Jake’s two brothers: Jesse (Mary), of Queens, and Tim, of Fayetteville, NC; sister Aimee (Jim) Brooker, of Constantia, NY; father and mother-in-law Stan & Katie (Kane) Barringer, of Le Roy; brother-in-law Patrick (Emily) Barringer of Rushford, NY; sisters-in-law: Rebekah Barringer, of North Chili, Johannah Barringer, of Manchester, NH, and Jessica (Paul) Kautz of Norwich, CT; six nieces and nephews; many aunts and uncles and over 50 cousins.
All are invited to join in a celebration of his life at 10 a.m. Saturday, August 9, at Pearce Memorial Church, 4322 Buffalo Rd., North Chili, NY. The service will be followed by a pot luck gathering at Cornerstone Bible Chapel, 3231 Buffalo Road in Gates.

What an incredible man of God…Jake, my brother, thank you for being the hands and feet of Christ for so many. We are forever blessed by your example <3
I did not know Jacob personally but I know he is my brother in Christ and he’s in His presence spotless, in fullness and joy! But I have friends who knew and loved him, who have shared wonderful things about his life and I pray for his dear wife and children, his extended family and his friends who have this earthly loss.
Jake was one of the most faithful people I have ever been blessed to know. We met in college, and I had the opportunity to praise with him quite a few times through Campus Ambassadors. I will always hold his wife, Chrissy, and their three beautiful children, in my thoughts and prayers.
Evidence Hein is no forward tnikher: 1)He fixed something that was never broken(ie, Golden Hill HealthCare Facility) by ditching it, with long term consequences of higher costs in a system out of control with costs already; 2)He is in NYC and Albany seemingly more than he is in Ulster County and doesn’t know anything or have any clue(which everyone ELSE WOULD KNOW IF the media did its job on that) about the day to day operations of Ulster County(neither does the professional managers he has under hire in his office, who can’t stop from stumbling over themselves in trying to deal with any bungling in any dept. more on that later ), so Mr. Hein has obviously paid NO attention there). He wants everyone to believe that since he is fighting for the county on water issues his neglect of the other items listed ought be viewed as water over the DAM. I view it as more a brain waterlogged from a sense of his own power. Further, Gallo only seemed so outgunned and outwitted on these issues if you are a media watcher or so stuck on yourself in the media you are hopeless;indeed, the media blew it up to the level of some World War, which it was not. Gallo was RIGHT to criticize this man Hein (who is so full of hubris from his ditching of Golden Hill and his seeming unbroken string of victories), on the issue of Sophie Finn School, and has less egg on his face than does Hein on that one(he merely and additionally has fewer SMILES on his face for a photo op but only those in the media literally forever seem to care about that one at least overtly either). Mr. Reynolds, maybe it is about time you hightailed it out of town in Mr. Rooney’s nonexistent F-105 you could try to reach the sound barrier in so doing .(ok retirement in Florida might be a suitable substitute) and let those of us with any actual information on the topic your blather tries to pass off as the last and definitive word fill in for your perennial covering of your ignorance with your supposedly huge level of cleverness that everyone is supposed to be bowled over by and kowtow to. [And if that’s a run-on sentence, I don’t care:Mother Dorothy Robinson(they since became known as “Sisters”) was known to actually side with me moreso overall in the old days than say, Mr. Sottile(who would of course prefer to posit and present the opposite), and I claim “an academic exemption” from overcriticism on that point from HER.(seems Reynolds has already granted Sottile “a bungling exemption” himself). Whether Cardinal Dolan will grant HER the privilege of doing so–or any other Nun– of course remains, well, his prerogative, “per the usual power flow”]. Gore Vidal, R.I.P.
