SCOTT JEROME BAKER
April 15, 1964-April 18, 2013
Scott Jerome Baker passed away in Park County, Colo., on Thursday, April 18, 2013. He had recently moved to Colorado to try something new. He was born in Ridgefield, N.J., and moved to the Florida Keys with his family at the age of 1. Scott was a 1982 graduate of Key West High School. His passing leaves an empty space for many friends he had here in the Keys. He was an avid orchid grower and loved to fish. He spent the last months of his life traveling around the United States and saw the Pacific Ocean for the first time. He was preceded in death by his father, Jerome Smith Baker, in 2005; his mother, Joan S. Baker, in 2012; and his beloved dog, Raja, a few months ago. He is survived by his sister Amy McKittrick and her husband Lonny of Billings, Mont.; his sister Lenore Baker of Big Pine Key; and his nephew Jason Dean of Billings, Mont. A celebration of life will be held at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 30, 2013, at the Vineyard Christian Center on Big Pine Key. We ask that you try to arrive at 7:15. Dean Lopez Funeral Home has been entrusted with all arrangements.
