Born in Scranton, PA Kenneth was the brother of Alan Baker, Georgia Baker-Petit, Butch Baker, Karen Baker-Ross, Tim Rought, David Rought, Donna Westfield, Nancy Jones. Serving with honor for years as a Staff Sergeant in the USAF, Kenneth had the opportunity to meet wonderful people and see much of the world. Memories he cherished throughout his life. Often one to smile on his worst days and create smiles on others, Kenneth was a beacon of positivity. When he was diagnosed with cancer he stared it down with a smile and determination to beat it, which he did. On days off he was one to enjoy a rerun of a favorite show, watch a movie from his Blu-Ray collection, or keep up with Philadelphia sports. Kenneth owned multiple pieces of merchandise and apparel from almost every local sports team and enjoyed seeing games with his three children. Enjoying a long career as a MRO Buyer, Kenneth worked for companies such as Reading Alloy, Hatfield Quality Meats, and Dietz & Watson where he was beloved by many. During his life he also worked healthcare under Lincoln Home Healthcare as well as maintenance, retail, and as Military Police in the US Air Force. Funeral Services will be held at the Linwood W.

I wanted to thank everyone for all the love, support, new friendships, escorts, bikers, USAF, pastor, guitarist, all those on Meals Train, all the calls, emails, texts, cards, FB GoFundMe donations, the pastor doing memorial service, seeing old friends, getting together with family. Military buddies all over, Dave, President of Veterans Promise, the florist, Brian at Linwood Otts, flowers are beautiful. Military buddies, I have dementia in case I didn't name anyone. Not intentional. U each touched me during this time. We will miss him.

My sincere condolences to Ken's family. I met Ken when I started working for Reading Alloys in January 2020. I spoke to him only a few times, he was a kind person. He was always upbeat in spite of going through his cancer treatments. I will keep your family in prayer during what I know is a difficult time.

May God Be With You,

Ann Shaeffer

I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Ken in person, but I arrived on scene of his accident shortly after it happened. My heart breaks for the family and especially John as we stayed with him until we had no choice but to leave. Your family will always be in our hearts and thoughts as John is someone i will never forget. I heard several positive stories about the man Ken was and know I would have enjoyed knowing him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I will never forget
