My sincerest condolences to the family. Mr. Baker was one of my favorite teachers in the 70's. Accounting,shorthand and typing.I had moved from the area and moved back and had to attend parent teacher conference for my son in the 90's, he kept telling me there was one teacher I just would not like! What a surprise to walk in and see Mr. Baker,I then knew it was my son misbehaving. He was always very fair and tried hard for the students.  May he RIP.

Mr. Baker was one of my favorite teachers at NUHS.  He was always very patient and kind, which was not  easy on certain days when dealing with a room full of rowdy teenagers! I learned a lot from him.  My oldest son Kyle also had Mr. Baker as a teacher and was sad to hear of his passing, said that he was awesome and would be missed.  Our prayers go out to Mrs. Baker.
