What can I say that would add to the life of a man who truly loved and appreciated everyone and was loved and appreciated by everyone.....he was an humble individual who worked hard and took care of his family and friends. I've known Richard since I was a young'n and his unique quiet style always left one feeling safe and secure - he had you covered. Richard had a unique way of making one feel protected and secure without a lot of unnecessary attention. He loved to have fun and enjoyed pulling a prank with the best of them! His shy, introverted persona gave way to a very happy, loving person who loved his family and friends. He was a doer and an example of what love and kindness should be. I thank God that I knew and loved Richard Q Baker and speaking from years past, was so thankful for an opportunity to share my life with him.
