Baxter Keith Stevens, 51, of Grahn Road, Olive Hill, passed away Friday, March 9, 2018, at King's Daughters Medical Center in Ashland.
He was born January 2, 1967, in Ashland, the son of Ruick Elwood and Helen Adkins Stevens. He was preceded in death by his parents and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Baxter is survived by his wife, Dovie Carter Stevens, whom he married July 31, 2008; mother- and father-in-law, Johnny Austin and Linda Carter; brothers-in-law, John "JB" Carter and Evan Meyer; sister-in-law, Stacey Meyer; niece, Addi Meyer; several aunts and uncles; many cousins; his beloved English Bulldog Buddah; countless friends; and decades worth of West Carter High School Comets. Among his closest friends were the West Carter faculty and staff and his beloved Comets teams' leaders, several of whom are listed under pallbearers. Add to that his current and former students and players and the list is too numerous to name. It would be easier to compile a list of people who did not know and love Baxter than a list of those who did!
Funeral services will be conducted 2 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, 2018, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals Memorial Chapel with the Rev. Evan Meyer and the Rev. Johnny Austin Carter officiating. Burial will follow at the Roar Cemetery in Grahn.
Pallbearers: Jeff Roe, Greg Reynolds, Chris Perry, Jeremy Webb, Bradley Walker, Judd Maddix, Kevin Brown, Zach Stevens. Honorary Pallbearers: Special friends Roger Dunfee, Stan McGlone, George Kiser; brothers-in-law, John JB Carter and Evan Meyer.
Visitation is 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday, March 12, 2018, at Northcutt & Son Home for Funerals in Morehead.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests if you would like to contribute to Baxter's memory, "Put a ball in the hands of a kid."
