Evelyn Knorr wrote a sympathy message

“To the entire Baker family. My heart and love to all of you as you grieve the loss of Bill. He will always hold a special place in my heart (for him and Carol). I was in my 20's when I started working for Bill at Purolator - he taught me about great leadership - caring for employees, respect and there was always something to laugh about. He will be greatly missed. I am so glad that I was able to visit with him and Carol. May he Rest In Peace and rise in glory. Love Evelyn”
