Eugene Walter Baker Jr., 71, of Cambridge, MA, passed away peacefully at

Massachusetts General Hospital surrounded by beloved family members. He

was the second son of the late Eugene Walter Baker Sr. and Mary Ellen

had a career in the U.S. Navy. He graduated from Hamilton High School in

Brooklyn, NY and attended Boston University.

Eugene joined the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam era and was stationed in

Caribou, ME as a firefighter. After leaving the military, he worked as a

particular enjoyment from watching the Boston Bruins. He also

experiences about how he was a pit crew member for a race car driver friend

when they were younger. Most of all, he was dedicated to spending time with

his loving daughters. He also enjoyed gardening, home projects, jazz music,

and was a dog lover.

He was predeceased by his brother George H. Baker. He is survived by his

daughters Amy V.L. Baker and Kendall V.L. Baker, and his former wife, Lori
