On October 15, 2009, Gary Baker passed away unexpectedly at his home in Turtle Creek, Pennsylvania, at age 60.
Gary has been active in ACE since the moment he joined, serving as a regional rep or assistant regional rep for nearly all of that time. Gary also served as ACE's national events director from 1998-2004, a position that he found most rewarding. He enjoyed planning events for others to enjoy, and put his heart into it.
Gary touched the lives of many ACE members in Western Pennsylvania and throughout the world. He and his fun-loving style and personality will be missed by many. The events that he attended and planned have created thousands of memories that will be cherished forever.
An appropriate tribute will appear in the December issue of ACE News. Gary was laid to rest on Tuesday, October 20 at Round Hill Cemetery in Elizabeth Township.
