Obituary

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Les Baker on Sunday February 13, 2022 at the age of 71. Les was born on January 21, 1951 to Clare and Gloria Baker. He was survived by his wife Judi Baker and his children Shiloh, Seth (Dianne), and Jenessa.  Les adored his grandsons Keaton, Jaxon, Tanner, Lex, Nate, Luke, and Scott. 

Les grew up in British Columbia with a loving and close-knit family. He had a beautiful musical talent, especially with the trumpet. He was asked to join a band with Herb Bishop and fell in love with Judi, Herb’s daughter. Les started going to church with Judi, was baptized and married Judi in 1977. The family decided to move to Alberta in 1984, where Les worked with the Bishop Family business in oil manufacturing and sales.  Les loved fishing. Each time he was told he was having another grandson, he’d say, “I am going to need a bigger fishing boat!” He loved the outdoors and was a Master Scout, tennis player, and football enthusiast. Les leaves a big hole in many hearts and will be missed and remembered by many.
