Frank Baker

January 14, 1925 – December 8, 2018
Frank passed away in Claresholm, Alberta on December 8 at the age of 93.

He will be lovingly remembered by his daughter, Sharon Senderek of Claresholm and his son, Jim (Janice) Baker of Destiny Bay, BC.

Frank was very proud of his three grandchildren, Michael (Emily) Baker, Cameron (Stacey) Baker and Katherine (Duncan) Unrau. He also took delight in his 7 great grandchildren.

Born and raised on a farm near Leslieville, Frank came to Calgary and worked as a carpenter and a building supervisor for the Alberta Government. He met his beloved Sylvia and raised his family in Calgary.

Frank greatly enjoyed the outdoors; hunting, fishing, camping, hiking and cross-country skiing. He traveled widely and especially loved cruises.

In 1981, Frank retired to Invermere where he started B Squared Builders with his son. He continued to enjoy wood working after his 2nd retirement and all the family treasure the many stools, desks and chairs he crafted.

In 2007, Frank and Sylvia moved to Cranbrook and after Sylvia’s passing, he moved to Claresholm to be closer to his daughter.

A celebration of his long and well lived life will be held in the summer.
