John Dennis Baker
On Friday March 4th, 2011 John passed away peacefully at home with his loving wife Anna & close friends by his side.
He started his journey March 5th, 1942 in Owen Sound Ontario, where he grew up and made many friends while playing lacrosse, Hockey & racing stock cars. He moved to Campbell River in 1979. John was a man of many trades, glazier, fisherman, pipefitter/ welder and excelled at them all. He loved living on the west coast and spent many hours fishing, hiking, riding his Harley or just enjoying all the area had to offer. In recent years he discovered how much he enjoyed going to Mazatlan for the winters.
John leaves behind his loving wife Anna, son Steve (Jill), daughters Karen (Ed) & Krista (Brian), stepson Mike (Mai) and 8 grand children. He also leaves behind three brothers Lanny, Bev, Brent (Judy), 2 sisters Brenda (George) & Wendy (Gerry). His passion for riding has Harley and his kind & generous spirit won him many life long friends and he will be missed by all. My heartfelt gratitude & thanks goes out to all his special friends, especially Bo, whom were by his side throughout John’s courageous fight with cancer.
No service by John’s request. A memorial motorcycle ride and Celebration of John’s life will be held in late spring.
