Brent Baxter Obituary, Death Cause – The Caulfield Grammarians Football Club is in a state of mourning due to the passing of former champion player Brent Baxter. His death occurred recently. Brent, who is affectionately known as Jobby, took part in 156 senior games between the years 1995 and 2004, including playing a significant role in the senior premierships in both 1998 and 2000. Between those years, he was a member of the senior team.
An exceptional athlete who, although spending the majority of his time on the wing, was able to step in at the ruck and in other crucial positions when they were needed. His grin and laughter used to put a smile on everyone’s face in the locker rooms, and his old teammates still had a lot of love and respect for him. Following his retirement from football, Brent started a successful business and provided financial support to the Fields family across a number of years at that time.
From all of us here at CGFC, our thoughts and prayers are with the Baxter family during this difficult time. Gone to soon! On Saturday, those of us who will be participating at Glenhuntly will be donning black armbands in his honor. Hearing news like this is quite heartbreaking. He was believed to be one of the best players on the field due to his outstanding marking and his agile running, and he was thought to be the best player on the field.
Off the field, he was a fantastic person who was always upbeat and made time for everyone around him. He was a team player, but he was also a team player off the field. After the game, he was really kind with his time for me in terms of business, and the experience is one that I will not soon forget. During this difficult moment, I am thinking about Jobby’s whole family as well as all of his close friends and family members.
