Ronald "Ron" Baker

On January 7th, 2021 Dad joined Mom in heaven after a courageous battle with Parkinson’s. Born August 25th, 1943 in harbour Mille, NL. Dad then moved to Halifax with his family as a child. He went on to spend most of his years in Timberlea with his wife Catherine of 55 years raising their 5 children. Dad devoted the majority of his career to the Canadian Coast Guard working as quarter master and lived for the ocean. He was proud of his accomplishments and worked hard for his family.

He is predeceased by his parents Lillian and Frank baker, wife of 55 years, Catherine and sister Daisy. Survived by son, Ronnie (Henry); daughters, Karen (Kirby), Maria, Lilly, Louise (Keith); brothers, Albert (Mary) Frankie, Johnny (Elaine), sister, Emma McNeil; eleven grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren; sons-in-laws, Danny and Richard. We would like to thank the staff of the Admiral long term care facility in Dartmouth for taking care of Dad these past few years and send a heartfelt thank you to capital health for allowing us to have a visit with Dad during his final days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Parkinson’s Society of Canada.

Rest in peace Uncle Ronnie. You were a great uncle and such a joy to be around. Every time I saw you, you would always have a witty comment even before saying “hi." I will cherish all the laughs and the wonderful memories you and your beloved wife, aunt Catherine, have left behind. Thank you for always welcoming me into your home and making me feel like one of the kids. You will be missed.

Although no words can ease the loss you bear, kno.w you're very close in our thoughts and prayers

To Ron's Family especially Ronnie who was the only one I really got to meet -------- So sorry to learn of Ron's passing . First met Ron many years ago when he would drop into the Home Hardware in New Ross with a friend on their way to camp in East Dalhousie , it was always enlightening to chat with these 2 & hear the many stories they shared about working with the Coast Guard . Later when he & Catherine lived in New Ross for a short time, next door to my son & his wife , Ron became a regular customer & we shared a lot of laughs about different things & sometimes Catherine wore the brunt of his jokes , sure missed him once he moved back to the HRM after she passed . Rest in peace my friend , until we meet again .
