I just found out about Dave's passing. I was shocked by the news as I had been out of the country at the time. Dave was a wonderful person and great representative for all of the military. I am honored to have worked with him at Humana Military.
Connie, you and Dave's family are in my prayers. I enjoyed working with both of you at HMHS and several of us still talk about those times with fond memories. I did not know he was at Patrick for the Challenger disaster. Remember still where I was when I heard the news.
I had the pleasure to work at the Orlando AFO when Dave was the Regional Director of HMHS. He was a very kind and caring person. Thank you Dave for all you gave to your country, your co-workers and HMHS. You were truely a great example. To Connie and family, you are in my prayers as you go through this difficult time.
I had the privilege of working with Dave at Humana Military from 1996 until my retirement in 2011. He was indeed an exceptional and well-respected leader - one who inspired quality performance and loyalty. Humana Military benefited tremendously under his leadership. I am certain his memory will continue to live on in the hearts of all he touched. I am honored to have known him. Connie and family, Bill and I share in the sorrow of your loss.

What an incredible leader and friend Mr. Baker (Dave) was to all his fellow Humana Military associates. He will forever remain in our hearts and his spirit lives on in his family. Keeping you in my prayers.
