OBITUARY: David James Baker

With great sadness, we are mourning the loss of David, 28, who drowned in the ocean in Santa Marta, Columbia December 28, 2011.

David was born July 10, 1983 in South Lake Tahoe and had just recently decided to go backpacking in Columbia to seek a peaceful and unencumbered lifestyle. No words can express the sorrow felt by all who knew him. He had a sensitive and giving nature, and will be forever missed by his parents, Jerry and Chris Baker; brothers Evan of San Francisco, Steven (Molly) of South Lake Tahoe, and Doug (Bri) of San Diego. From Michigan, he leaves his grandmother, Betty Lamoureux; aunts and uncles Earl Lamoureux, Mike and Judy Lamoureux, and Janet Dixson, their families; and Rex and Eileen Baker and family from Riverside, Ca.

MEMORIAL SERVICE Monday January 23, 2012 … 11 AM Sierra Community Church 1165 Sierra Blvd. South Lake Tahoe, Ca
