Sept. 1919 – July 20, 2007
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Vern Baker.
Vern was born in Quatsino Sound on the northern coast of Vancouver Island and he served his country in the Second World War, landing in Calais and fighting with his comrades into Germany.
Vern was one of the first employees of the new Pulp Mill in Port Alberni in 1948 and also one of the first employees at the new Pulp Mill in Prince Rupert in 1951. He and his wife Eleanor retired to the Comox Valley in 1976.
Predeceased by his parents, Finnie and Edith Baker, wife Eleanor and sister Bearnice, Vern leaves behind many nephews and nieces and their families.
The family wishes to thank his many friends at Chelsea Court in Comox, for the kindness and support shown to Vern throughout the years. Your friendship was invaluable to Vern.
At Vern’s request there will be no Memorial Service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the charity of your choice.
