Obituary

Gerald "Gerry" E. Baker, 69, of Londonderry, NH, passed away peacefully on December 4, 2017 with his family by his side, after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Calais, Maine on May 31, 1948 to the late Oliver and Doris (Libby) Baker.

Gerry proudly served in the United States Air Force and Air National Guard for almost 25 years, retiring at the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. His time included a three year term as Command Chief for the State of NH. He was honored to have served his country.
Gerry was a kind, caring soul with a positive outlook on the world. He went out of his way to make everyone smile. He would say hello to everyone he passed, whether he knew them or not. He truly made the world a better place just by being in it.
