BAKER, HENRY
Henry Louis Bertolle Baker passed away peacefully, with family by his side, at Trillium Ridge Nursing Home, Kingston, Ontario on Friday, April 24, at age 91. Henry was born on March 18, 1924 in Huntsville, Ontario to Clara Elizabeth (Beagin) of London, England and Walter William Baker of Listowel, Ontario.
He was predeceased by brothers Thomas, Charles and Kenneth ("Pete").
"Hank" was a loving and devoted husband of 69 years to Mary Esther (Machum). He will be sadly missed by Mary, and his four children Jacqueline Ward (Doug) of Shelburne, NS, Harlyn (Irmgild) of Los Altos California, Royce of Pickering Ontario and Greg (Cynthia) of Kingston. He made an indelible mark on the lives of all who knew him, including his grandchildren Kensey Garlick (Aaron) of Waterdown, ON, Ashley Guenther (Robert) of Toronto, Alexandra Baker of Los Altos, California, Jordan Baker of London, Ontario and Brittany Baker of Kingston. He was special great grandfather to Carter Garlick and step-grandfather to Erin (Brent) Nickle of Whitby, Patrick (Brooke) Malloy of Milton and step-great-grandfather of Ava Nickle and Grayson and Harper Malloy. He will also be missed by numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins.
Henry was a WWII veteran, serving in both Canada and England. On returning home from the war, he was very active in the Masonic Lodge, including being a founding member & Past Master of Wexford Masonic Lodge A.F. & A.M. #683 in Scarborough Ontario, Member of London Valley A&ASR and Moore Sovereign Consistory, Hamilton Ontario and a member of the former Limestone Daylight Lodge #739 A.F. & A.M. He became president of the Scarborough Cancer Society and was a member of The War Veterans’ Association of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church. He spent a lot of his working life as District Manager of Formica Canada Inc. Henry had a keen interest in genealogy and was delighted when he learned that his ancestral roots included passengers onboard the Mayflower. He held great pride in his family and was a true mentor and positive role model to all who knew him. The memory of that twinkle in his eye, his keen sense of humour, his high ideals and integrity will live forever.
