Robert “Bob” Baker

BAKER, Robert “Bob”…

Quietly at Victoria Hospital on Tuesday, January 31, 2023, Bob Baker passed away at the age of 77. Robert Walter Baker was born in Toronto on April 20th, 1945 to his parents Margaret Rose (nee Emigh) and Walter Harvey Baker. Unfortunately Bob’s father died very early after he was born in a motor vehicle accident. In the early 1950’s Margaret Baker married Edward (Ted) Buie, who had 2 older sons. They lived as a family for a while in Vancouver, but Ted was in the construction business and the family moved to the US, Quebec, Saskatchewan and finally Manitoba.

Bob was a very brilliant young man, while in Manitoba he attended the United College of Winnipeg and eventually became a computer programmer. His passion for computer programming led him to Ontario, where he worked for the City of Woodstock.

He is survived by his step brothers Byron Alwyn and Robert John Buie and a cousin Lynne Noreen Jones, of Ontario, as well as many nieces and nephews. Robert will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
