Obituaries » Henry L. Baxley Jr.

Henry L. Baxley Jr., 88, of Marshall, passed away on November 26, 2018, at Meadow Grove, his home.

He was the son of Henry Little Baxley and Mamie Yates Baxley of Hume.

Mr. Baxley graduated from Hume Elementary School, Warrenton High School and Virginia Military Institute (Class of 1951), where he majored in civil engineering and land surveying. After serving in the U.S. Army in Korea, he worked for Standard Oil of California in Mississippi, designing oil derricks in the Gulf of New Mexico for two years. Then he returned to Virginia to practice engineering, surveying and computer programming for Patton, Harris, Rust and Associates in Fairfax for the remainder of his professional career.

He was the corresponding secretary of the Fauquier Historical and Preservation Foundation. Mr. Baxley also held a private pilot’s license and enjoyed the thrill of flight. He loved theater and made many friends in his work on and off stage with the Fauquier Community Theatre. He had small roles in 12 shows, all of which he made his own.

Survivors include his wife of 54 years, Ursula Beverley Baxley, to whom he was devoted; a son, John Hirst Baxley and his wife Ruth Philipp Baxley; a daughter, Ruth Baxley Prideaux and her husband Paul Mitchell Prideaux, and three adored grandchildren, Ann Beverley Prideaux, Jack Philipp Baxley and William Hirst Baxley.

A celebration of life will take place at 2 p.m. Sunday, December 2, at Leeds Episcopal Church, 4332 Leeds Manor Road, Hume. Mr. Baxley was the treasurer of Leeds Church for 27 years, head of the cemetery for 36 years and a lifelong member. A reception will follow at Meadow Grove, 4406 Winchester Road, Marshall.

Memorial contributions may be made to Fauquier Community Theatre, P. O. Box 3046, Warrenton, Va. 20188.
