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.
