It is with great sadness the family announces the unexpected passing at home of Terry Baker in his 70th year on Saturday, January 25, 2014. Beloved husband of the late Nancy Baker (2003) and cherished partner of Anne Matthews. Much loved father of Stacey Baker (Ryan Pocrnich). Dear brother of Michael (Mica) Baker and Carla (Ian) McDonald. Also survived by his sister-in-law Donna (the late Gus) Kerhoulas. Predeceased by his parents Charles Baker and Kay Casagrande and his sister Victoria Baker. Amazing uncle to Dean, Jennifer, Michael, Nicholas, Jessica, Kathleen and Emily. Sadly missed by many family and friends. Terry “The Bear” will always be remembered for his sense of humour, love of sports and music. He was the #1 fan of the Detroit Tigers. If you didn’t see him at the Ceeps you would find him at a baseball park, on somebody’s boat, deck or watching some sport in his living room on the T.V. He had many friends and loved to have a beer and shoot the breeze. He was a dedicated employee of former London landmark Bob’s T.V. for many years. In his earlier years he was one of the first DJ’s in London. He was a cool cat, a true rock star and amazing guy. He was a wizard at crosswords, a master of trivia and scrabble, and a lover of jigsaw puzzles. He was a good friend to many, a loving and devoted father to Stacey. Although Nancy is no longer here she always remained in Terry’s heart. Cremation has taken place. Friends will be received by family from 5-8 pm on Thursday, January 30, 2014 at the A. Millard George Funeral Home, 60 Ridout Street South, London. Interment in Forest Lawn Memorial Gardens. The family invites friends to Celebrate “The Bear’s” life at the Ceeps, 671 Richmond Street at Mill Street, London, from 2-4pm on Friday, January 31st. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations may be made to the Multiple Sclerosis Society London/ Middlesex Chapter or St. Joseph’s Hospice of London.
