Kenneth Allen Baker, 56, of Fairhaven, succumbed to cancer in the comfort of his own home surrounded by family on July 22, 2019.

Kenneth was the son of the late SSgt Kenneth A. and Marilyn M. (Goulart) Baker. He is survived by his wife Lynne (Bessette) of 35 years, daughter Paige A. Baker and fiancé Clayton Tache of Fairhaven, sons Kyle T. Baker and his wife Kathryn of Acushnet, Scott M. Baker and his fiancée Ashley Finnen of Freetown, brother Kevin S. Baker of New Bedford, and four loving grandchildren. Kenny was a loving father, husband, grandfather, and friend to everyone.

I am very sorry to hear Kenny passed. He delivered soda ash to mass water in Clinton and other locations. I knew him since 2001. The work would stop when he showed up and we would talk about family and bikes. I will miss seeing him, he is a great guy! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
Sincerely, Jeff Stanton

My deepest sympathy to all of Kennys family. Although our paths didn’t cross very often I did get a chance to chat with Kenny for a bit last summer. The main topic being the “ Natco” days! Kenny was a big part of those days for me, and others i'm sure. God Bless

My condolences to Kenny’s family. Kenny was a great neighbor! He always took the time to say hello to me. We would chat in the street and share stories. Although, I didn’t know him long..Kenny was one of those people who you felt like you knew forever. Just a genuine guy! His bright smile and warm heart will be missed on Garrison!

It’s hard to put into words so many years of memories. Lynne and Kenny moved in next door when I was just a little girl. Kenny loved to drive my Mom crazy, in a good way, whenever she hung her laundry on the line, by mowing the lawn or having the kids splash around in the pool. He loved to tease her and make her laugh. Those light hearted smiles and laughter hold a special place in my heart. He would bring home his truck and we all knew that familiar sound. It made Garrison St home. I told Lynne the day Kenny passed, Mom was probably greeting him up above saying geesh Kenny why are you here too? It’s too soon! Lynne and Kenny built a home for their family but also for many others as well. They raised a lot of other “babies” there. Kenny was “the guy with the big truck and the motorcycle” and “the guy who pushes me on the bike in the driveway and squirts me with the hose”. So as much as I grew up with Kenny, so did my babies. My heart breaks for you, our Lynnie, as I know the pain you are feeling right now. Kyle, Paige and Scott, my heart aches for you. I know all too well the loss of a parent. But I promise that in time, you will see Kenny in the most subtle ways, and feel him in your presence always. You will find peace and comfort knowing he is watching over you. Cherish the memories and never stop talking about them. Keep his spirit alive always. Rest In Peace Kenny. Love you guys. ❤️

I am so deeply sorry and sad for your loss. Couldn’t have asked for better neighbors. The one memory that comes to my mind is Jared yelling out the upstairs bedroom window for “Uncle Kenny Baker” and coming home with our camper and my Kenny not able to get it on the driveway and your Kenny always to the rescue! A very kind soul.Love to all of you.
