Kent Lee Baker, 71 (Nov 4, 1940), passed peacefully on Monday, May 21, at 8 pm in the comfort of his family.
He was born in Salt Lake City, Utah and married his loving wife, Roberta (née Lindberg), on February 10, 1962 in California, eventually settling in Washington.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years; his four children Michele, James, Jennifer and Jeremy; 13 adoring grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Kent is watching over his family alongside his parents, Vera Wardle Bell and Alfred J. McKinley Baker.
After many years of interesting work, including the opportunity of being an engineer on the Apollo, Kent retired and focused on two hobbies he loved dearly – nature and photography. Since his early twenties, he enjoyed photographing the beautiful places he hiked, climbed and camped, even building his own darkroom.
After his retirement in 2000, he began selling prints at art shows. Eventually he joined the art guild and began to teach classes. His wife, Roberta, shares in his passion and continues to carry on their work.
In lieu of flowers the family asks you to consider donations in his honor to Providence Hospice, PHHC Foundation, 2371 Wetmore Ave STE #500, Everett, WA 98201.
