Chris was one of my soldiers when ever he was stationed at Ft. Bragg. A very fine gentleman and hate to hear of this tragic accident. RIP my fellow service member. Feet and knees together, AIRBORNE, ALL THE WAY.

Christopher was my equal partner; despite us being complete opposites. He was my love, my confidant, my rock and my soldier. He never gave up on me and our children, no matter the uphill battle. We accomplished so much together in such a short amount of time. Chris found joy in the small things and showed us his love daily. He made me happy in ways I never knew I could be. My favorite memories are of us creating our own traditions, chasing him out of my kitchen and having our own inside jokes. There will never be another Christopher Baker; the mold was broken long ago. I will continue to love and miss him every day. His memory will live on through his family and friends so that our children will know him as well. Until we meet again my love. "You're stuck with me" and I'm still tangled up in you.

Watching Chris and Ashley work together to raise their two beautiful children was always so heartwarming. Chris was a wonderful father to Colt and Lonnie. We lost a big piece of our family with his passing. I’m lifting up everyone left behind in prayer and asking the Lord for peace and comfort.

Chris entered our lives making our daughter Ashley the happiest I have ever seen her. You could see at that moment, he loved her, and his son Colt. There was no doubt he was wonderful hardworking daddy. He always cared and prioritized his family. Later, they blessed us with Lonnie Grace. He was so proud and loved caring for his little girl! Chris left this family way too soon and unexpectedly. He will be greatly missed but never forgotten!

Photographing your family was something I’ll always remember. Your dad jokes, doing the maternity poses, carrying my stuff and getting onto all of us to drink water. Then later seeing you hold that baby girl, pure love. You will be greatly missed!

You weren't born from my flesh
You weren't knit from my bone...
But, oh! How I loved you like my own.
