It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Thomas Walter Baker of Bellevue, Alberta who valiantly battled cancer but succumbed to his illness without pain or discomfort on March 10, 2021 at the age of 60 years.
Tom was born on Christmas Day in 1960 in Brantford, Ontario to proud parents, Thomas Earnest and Donna Marie Baker. He was raised with a good work ethic and appreciation for the outdoors. He carried the family name with honour and had strength in character and more than his fair share of determination and stubbornness. He was meticulous and caring, active and a loyal friend to many. He enjoyed hunting and fishing in the mountains of the Crowsnest Pass, Alberta, snowmobiling and every moment spent in the great outdoors. He was a dedicated iron worker and with a great sense of pride in his job.
Tom had a soft spot in his heart for his family and felt truly blessed when his daughter, Chelsi, was born. When diagnosed with cancer, Tom wanted to improve his life and bridge the distance within his family and to grow in his faith.
Tom was a man of many talents and suffered many of life’s challenges and celebrated many accomplishments. He will be dearly remembered and greatly missed.
He is survived by his daughter, Chelsi Baker of Calgary; his siblings, Gina Jaciw, Cathy Baker, Joey Baker and Jim Baker; his mother, Donna Baker; his Godson, Brad (Lacy) Burton and their daughter, Jayla Burton; his extended family and many friends. He was predeceased by is father, Thomas Earnest Baker and brother, Aaron Baker.
A gathering of family and friends to honour Tom’s life will be held when the pandemic restrictions are lifted. Donations in memory may be directed to the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
