Robert Austin Baynton, 85, of White Bear Lake, died peacefully on February 12, 2020.
He was the loving husband of Linda; father to Brett (Josephine), Dannah (Chris), and Scott (Tricia). Grandpa Bobby loved and doted on his grandkids, Maddie, Sophie, Charlie, Meredith, and Molly. He is also survived by beloved family in Canada.
Bob was born in Shoal Lake, Manitoba. He graduated from the University of Manitoba and served in the Royal Canadian Navy. He had a long, successful business career, and volunteered for many years with St. Paul SCORE, helping new businesses.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. Our sincere thanks to his caregivers/cribbage opponents Gina and Alyssa, and to the nurses, doctors and aides from St. John’s Hospital 1st floor, who so lovingly cared for Bob during his recent time there.
