Not sure what to say?

Wow I just found out today from my Dad. My condolences to all his children. Man the memories I have as a young child. He lived right next door to us. Whenever we went looking for Joe, sure enough he was at the Bakers house. We always felt a little more protected having an officer living right next door. He always would lend my Mom a helping hand whenever she needed anything. I remember I went back home just to check out our old house about maybe 8 years ago now. He caught me taking photos...

I had the pleasure of meeting Alan at BPD and working with him. He was a total professional and a great teacher. My you rest in eternal peace and my deepest condolences to your family. God bless.

Mr. Baker was like a 2nd Dad to me. He's been in my life since I was 1 year old... through the years (especially as I grew into adulthood) Mr. Baker has always been someone I could count on, through thick & thin. In the thin times he was most prevalent to me. I held/ hold him in such high regard. In his final months I was able to repay ( maybe a / of the love & concern that he always showed for Me. I've always let him know how much he meant to me & it was my honor to be there for...

How lucky we were as kids to all grow up in a neighborhood like James Ave. with Mr. Baker counted as one one of our many parents. I remember him as kind yet firm. My prayers go out to his kids, friends and extended family. Praying you find peace and comfort in this time of grieving. May fond memories bring a smile to your hearts.

I worked with Alan at the BPD for about 12 years. We also socialized outside of work. Alan was so dedicated to the mission, whatever it was. As a young, cocky rookie, I learned patience and calm from Alan. He didn't get rattled easy, but when someone crossed the line, he struck like a snake! Then it was over, and calm again. I am sorry I didn't keep in touch after I left the PD. RIP CPL. Alan Baker.

Alan was such a curmudgeonly teddy bear! I recently saw him and shared some smiles and memories. I will miss you my friend.

Alan was my uncle, my mother’s brother. He was also my unofficial father. He raised me from the time I was seven years old until I graduated high school. While we had our differences through the years and had grown apart, I had a lot of respect for the man. He taught me the love of outdoor sports. I still enjoy hunting and fishing to this day and have shared this passion with my own children. In my own way I will miss Alan and regret not having the opportunity to speak with him one last time...

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

God Bless You Alan Rest In Peace. You Will Be Missed. Diane Prue.
