Obituary

Terry William Charles Baker of Bowmanville (born April 12, 1947) left this world on March 31, 2021. Terry was the son of Alberta June Morris (Bowmanville) and Arthur John Baker (Solina) and was predeceased by his beloved younger brother, Gary Baker. He will be missed by his sons Chris, Doug and Adam, his grandchildren Tyler and Chloe, sisters Linda Baker-Cole (Dave Shepperdson), Maureen Brugel, Joanne Baker (nee Lackie), nieces and nephews Leigh-Anne Kellock (Grayson and Tobin), Laurie Tsuyuki (Jeff, Brianna and Jackson), Amanda (Jude and Phoenix) and Erica Brugel, Caley Clements (Chris, Wyatt and Ruby) Shane Baker (Hilary and Violet) and families, and many cousins and friends.

Terry loved life in general, but especially his family and friends, his hometown, baseball, hockey and golf, art, poetry and music. He was a rink rat at the Bowmanville arena in his early years, and enjoyed driving the zamboni. His early career years were spent patrolling Oshawa as a Durham Regional Police Officer and he received multiple commendations for outstanding service. He went on to finish his working life at Pickering Nuclear Plant, retiring in 2002.

It was his life outside of work that he truly enjoyed, immersing himself in his many hobbies whenever he could. He was a talented handyman/carpenter who spent many hours building decks and finishing basements, and spent hours tinkering on projects in the garage. He pitched and caught on local softball teams wherever he lived, was a hockey referee and softball umpire most of his life, co-coached the Canadian Men's B'Nai Brith Softball Team to a gold medal at the 14th annual Maccabiah Games in Israel (1993) and kept complete statistics for every softball game he ever played - no joke.

Terry was someone who paid attention to the details, in words, nature, his work and in his hobbies. He penned a library of 147 poems in recent years covering many topics of interest to him. He enjoyed chasing knowledge in the areas of world history and geography, and was a great one to tell stories about the local history and geography of his beloved Bowmanville area.

As per Terry's wishes, a formal service will not be held. However, once COVID-19 restrictions have lifted, an informal service will be held at Mount Vernon Cemetery in Solina, where a portion of Terry's hydrolyzed remains will be returned to the earth near the old Baker Farm, his childhood home. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a cause that is important to you or simply spend some time with your loved ones, reflecting on the important things in life:

"Breathe, breathe in the air. Don't be afraid to care. Leave but don't leave me.
Look around, choose your own ground. For long you live and high you fly.
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry. And all you touch and all you see
is all your life will ever be." Pink Floyd (One of dad;s favorites).

My condolences to Terry's family. Terry and I worked together years ago. Spending 12hr shifts together a lot I got to hear about his family. My gosh he was so proud of all of you. His face lit up. And funny? Holy cow he would tell me these jokes and i would have tears running down my cheeks from laughing. Honestly, some of them i didn't get but i never told him. He was just a genuine person. What you saw is what you got. He will be missed. Again, i am so sorry for your loss.

We were so sorry to hear of Terry’s passing. He really loved his sports. We spent many hours at the ballparks, practicing or playing games. He was always friendly to everyone and will be missed. Dennis and Emily Sullivan
