Obituary for Dr. Dixie Baines

Baines, Jr., M.D., Roy Dixie, age 79 of Centennial. Roy passed away on May 7th, 2014 after a long and valiant battle with cancer. He was the son of Roy Dixie Baines and Nannie Ellen Taggart Baines and was born on July 5th, 1934 in Enid, Oklahoma. He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother and three sisters. After graduating from high school in Hennessey, OK, he attended the University of Oklahoma, where he was a member of the Sigma Chi Fraternity. He graduated with honors from the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine in 1959. He and Louise Needham were married in Logan, UT on December 30th, 1958. They had three children, Roy Dixie III (Dix), Susan Louise and Stephanie Lynne. Dixie served his internship in mixed medicine at the University of Oklahoma Hospitals in 1959-60. He then completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in infectious diseases at the University of Colorado Medical Center. He was the first fellow trained in infectious diseases at UCMC. In 1965, he practiced in Boulder, CO for one year, but was then drafted into the U.S. Army. He spent one year at Martin Army Hospital at Fort Benning, GA and one year at the 85th Evacuation Hospital in Quin Nhon, Vietnam. From 1968 until his retirement in 1998, he did consultative work in infectious diseases in Denver. He was the first practicing infectious disease specialist in the Denver area; now there are more than 50 ID specialists. He was the founder of Infectious Disease Consultants. During his first ten years in practice, he was half time in the infectious disease division at the University of Colorado Medical Center. Thereafter, he was a preceptor in two private hospitals (Presbyterian/St. Luke’s and St. Joseph) for medical residents doing an infectious disease rotation. He was a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. He was listed in the 5280 Magazine as one of the top 100 physicians in 1994, 1996 and 1997. He was a member of a number of medical organizations, including Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, the American Medical Association, Colorado Medical Society, Denver Medical Society, Infectious Diseases Society of America, Denver Clinical and Pathological Society and was a Fellow in the American College of Physicians. Following his retirement in early 1998, he was the infectious disease advisor to the pharmacy department at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Hospital, monitoring the appropriateness of use of intravenous antibiotics. He had a keen interest in genealogy and family history and during the last fifteen years had volunteered at a family history center one afternoon each week. He fulfilled many callings in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, serving in the bishopric for six years and in the last eight years, was the medical advisor for LDS missionaries in Colorado. Dixie was an avid tennis player and was a member of the Denver Tennis Club since 1968. He held many rankings in Colorado over the years in singles and mixed doubles. In 2008, he was ranked number one in Men’s 70 Singles and was selected by the Colorado Tennis Association as the year’s outstanding senior male tennis player. The following year, in singles, he was again ranked number one, was 13-0 in tournament play losing one set during the course of the year.
