Walter E. Baca, 84, of Irvine, California, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 1st, 2021. Born March 15th, 1936 in Los Angeles, California, he was the son of the late Walter Baca and the late Lydia Pitrucha - Baca. As a graduate of UCLA and Loyola Law School, Walter proudly worked as a CPA and as a Tax and Estate Attorney for over 60 years. His other great passions were snow skiing with his family and enjoying long hours calculating racehorse strategies with his brother. He also loved a good spar of his Republican views with anyone. His brilliant mind, quick wit and sarcastic humor will be dearly missed.

Walter is cherished by his wife, Kym Young; son, Mark Baca; daughter, Lisa Baca and grandchildren; Gabriella, Jacqueline, Jennifer and Anna; great grandchildren; Lily Rose, Kingston, Ruby and Oliver and nieces; Stephanie, Stacey and Michelle and step-grandchildren; Valerie and Ashley. And he shall be always remembered by longtime friends.
