Obituary

Mr. David Baxter Gallimore, 91, a life long resident of Thomasville departed his earthly life on May 25 and is now in the presence of his Lord and Savior he so faithfully served throughout his life. He was predeceased by his parents, Lytle M. and Sallie Lambeth Gallimore and one sister, Caroleen Westmoreland. Baxter attended Main Street High School and later took courses at Piedmont Bible College in Winston-Salem. His years of employment included 10 years at the Wrenn Hosiery Mill in Thomasville and 32 years at Bost Bakery where he retired in 1991. During these years he also served as a pastor at Westfield Baptist Church.

 

After retirement he was employed by Mendenhall Auction. He later worked as a security guard at the Presbyterian Home in High Point. While there, his ability to interact and help people gave him a great sense of satisfaction. He was married to Edith Joe Snider for 61 years, helping her through her long battle with Alzheimer’s until her death in 2008. Left to cherish his memory are three children: Danny Gallimore and wife Lynn of Haw River, Bonnie Broadwater and husband Tom of High Point, Mark Gallimore and wife Carolyn of Thomasville, and one foster sister, Elizabeth Myers of Thomasville. In addition, he is survived by his grandchildren: Dan Gallimore, Courtney Ingersoll, Tristin Gallimore, Spencer Gallimore, Andrew Gallimore, and six great-grandchildren.

 

Baxter’s past pleasures included breakfast with his buddies at Hardee’s where they laughed as they solved the world’s problems. He loved all sporting events but baseball was his passion. He will perhaps be best remembered by those around him for his faith, wisdom and spiritual guidance. The family would like to express their appreciation to Baxter’s friends and neighbors for their help throughout the years. A special “Thank You’ goes to Mike Ferguson, dad’s special angel, for his daily visits and constant attention to our father’s needs. We are also grateful for the care and compassion given by the ICU staff at High Point Medical Center during this difficult time.

 

On Friday, May 29, 2020 Mr. Gallimore will remain at the JC Green & Sons funeral home in Thomasville between the hours of 9:00am to 1:30pm for anyone to come by and pay their respects. A private family graveside service will be held at Holly Hill Memorial Park in Thomasville with Rev. Chuck Garner officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials in Baxter’s honor can be made to Cooperative Community Ministries, PO Box 14, Thomasville, NC 27360.
