I had the privilege of working with Kirk Baker.

My brothers live far away and in the time that I've worked with Kirk, he and our estimating department colleagues have been such stupendous substitutes. It has made my work experience like a home away from home. It has also been such a refreshing time for Interstate Signways as well as our estimating team to be blessed with such a extraordinary person that not only cared very much for the company and the people in it but also built lasting friendships with many of our customers.

He spoke of his family and friends with the upmost admiration frequently and the things they would all do. My deepest condolences and prayers for Jamie, Blake and all his loved ones.

To you - heaven has gained such a treasure and far to soon, but I know your presence there will echo as it has in all the lives of the people around you!

We will all miss you!

Kirk loved to watch his son play soccer, as a fellow soccer dad, Kirk and I talked about our kids and their schedules/games all the time. He will be greatly missed at Interstate Signs where we were co-workers

The Baker family have been our friends for over 9 years. You guys have certainly become more like family over the years. We cherish all the great memories...4th of July fireworks, trip to Branson to see Jonah and the gigantic Ferris wheel and mountain coaster on the day it opened, New Year’s Eves spent playing card games, pumpkin patch visits with bonfires, and Super Bowl parties are just a few memories that come to mind but there are countless others. We love you all and share in your loss. Prayers for you in the days, months and years ahead.
