Sidney "Sid" Baker
September 20, 1921 - December 22, 2016
With overwhelming sadness we share the passing of Sidney Baker, in his 95th year, on Thursday December 22nd, 2016. Sid passed away peacefully, with family by his side, at the Cambridge Country Manor care home after a recent illness. Beloved father to Robert (Beth) and cherished grandpa to Cameron and Olivia. He is predeceased by his wife of 46 years, Joan, and his sister and best friend Jean (Buckingham). Born in Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, Sid was a proud, yet often silent, WWII veteran serving in the Royal Air Force. It was in the military that Sid found his passion for cooking. Prior to coming to Canada in 1957 he trained to be a pastry chef and exhibited his expertise for many memorable family gatherings. Sid will be remembered for his sense of duty and proper English ways, his fondness of the theatre and his unwavering love of family. A funeral service will be held at Christ the King University Roman Catholic Parish, 1486 Richmond St., London on Wednesday December 28th at 2:00pm with visitation from 1:00 - 2:00pm. Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada, in memory of Sid.
