RICHARD MARVINRichard J. Marvin, of Beans Bottom, passed quietly away on Thursday, May 19, 2016. Richard, a poor city boy from Philadelphia (playing on its streets with a hotdog in his pocket, he often relayed), served in the Army, put himself through college and law school, served many years as a public defender in the city of Philadelphia, married, retired, moved to Rockbridge County, and found home.Richard brought us his keen wit and quirky personality, his kind heart, and an unusual grip on reality.  He never ate a meal that he did not love, always complimented the cook (even when it was not deserved), frequented all our local libraries as a voracious reader, found many friends, became a docent at the Stonewall Jackson House (making up Stonewall Jackson stories, no doubt), and spent thousands of hours volunteering at the local SPCA.He leaves behind only distant family, and his many friends.  Richard also leaves behind an especially loyal friend, Stephano Sammartino, of Beans Bottom, who called Richard Pa. For many years Stephano was not only Richard's neighbor and friend, he was his champion and his guide through the complexities of growing old.  Richard spent many happy days because of Stephano.  We are all most grateful for that.Donations in Richard's memory should be made to the Rockbridge SPCA.A party to celebrate his life will be announced at a later date. Arrangements are by Harrison Funeral Home & Crematory.

ROBERT BAISLEYRobert N. Baisley, age 83, long-time resident of Lexington, died peacefully on Friday, May 6, 2016, in the company of his family at his daughter's home in Davidsonville, Md.Born in Goshen, N.Y., Mr. Baisley was the son of the late Robert F. Baisley and the late Marion E. Nelson Baisley. He was a descendant of the colonist William Baisley and Revolutionary War veteran Jacob Rose.His lifelong love of farming began growing up on Baisley Farms Inc. in Walden, N.Y., and continued when Mr. Baisley moved to Lexington in 1972, where he established his own cattle farms: Monte Vista Farm and Thistle Rose Farm.There he bred cattle, grew alfalfa and timothy grass, and logged timber. Mr. Baisley loved farming; it was never a job to him, he just loved what he did. Prior to his retirement, Mr. Baisley was an active member of the Rockbridge Farm Bureau, Young Farmers' Association, and Farmers' Cooperative. Mr. Baisley is best-known for his love of story-telling, keen sense of humor, and affable charm. With his warm smile and playful wink, Mr. Baisley was endeared by all (especially his 10 nieces and nephews who describe him their favorite uncle). While he retired in 2008 and moved to Sun City, Ariz., his heart remained on his farm. As the saying goes, you can take the boy out of the farm, but you can't take the farm out of the boy.Mr. Baisley was a loving husband, having celebrated 51 years and 11months of marriage to his bride Margarete Baisley, a devoted father and beloved grandfather.He is survived by his wife, Margarete A. Baisley of Sun City, Ariz.; his son, Barton N. Baisley of Ellicott City, Md.; his daughter, Barbara A. Baisley and son-in-law Matthew McPartlin of Davidsonville, Md.; and his four grandchildren, Mallery, Spencer, Maura, and Bennett.
