Raymond Baxter
#1
I have received the following from Colin Baxter, son of Raymond Baxter

I am contacting you to let you know that my father, Raymond Baxter, passed away on 11 November at the age of 85.  My father was a leading chess player in Scotland in the 1960s, finishing in the top 3 of the Scottish Championship twice and representing Scotland at the Chess Olympliad in Israel in 1964.
 
His funeral will be held at Warriston Crematorium, Edinburgh at 12 noon this coming Monday (26th November).   I'm not sure if you have an online notice board or similar to make your members aware so that any current or (more likely) former players who remember my father can perhaps attend.
