David BAKER

David Baker

April 6, 1942-December 11, 2012

He was just a guy who…………

moved to Campbell River in 1969 with his bride, Susan, to begin a new life.

He was just a guy who…………

formed his own one man construction company building over 100 houses in the Campbell River area one house

at a time.

He was just a guy who…………

adored his two sons, John and Derek and was so proud of their career choices, John, a Firefighter and Derek,

a Police Officer.

He was just a guy who…………

loved walking his beloved dog Bear in the Willow Point Trails and chatting to friends. This love of walking led him to complete the Great Walk 9 years in a row. David donated the pledge money to help establish the BC Guide Dogs and became a founding donor.

He was just a guy who…………

was a member of the Willow Point Volunteer Fire Department for 15 years and received the firefighter of the year award during that time.

He was just a guy who…………

will be remembered by family and friends for his quirky sense of humour. He also had a childlike sense of humour which could send his six grandchildren into gales of laughter with their screams of `Bumpa!` as he was affectionately known to them.

David is survived by…………….

his wife, Susan, Sons John (Debbie), Derek (Lori) and Grandchildren Jared, Jordan, Tyson, Hannah,

Natalie and Trey.

Goodbye my darling.
