Shasta County veteran passes away before his child is born

SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – The Shasta County community is rallying around a veteran’s family after his untimely passing.

Evan Baxter was an Air Force veteran, firefighter, and most recently, a Shasta County correctional deputy.

He was looking forward to his next big job: being a father. But due to an unexpected illness, Baxter passed away last week.

A GoFundMe* was started for his son his honor.

Organizers of the fundraiser said it’s a scholarship fund so “Baby Baxter” will be covered, no matter what.
