Eric M. Baker

November 1, 2022


Eric M. Baker, 40, originally from Randolph, NJ, passed away peacefully on November 1, 2022. He lived his life with passion and a carefree attitude. Born on July 31, 1982, in Livingston, New Jersey, Eric was the eldest child of Frederick and Gail Baker, and brother to sister Alexis. He grew up in Randolph and graduated from Trinity Pawling School in Pawling, NY. Eric went on to attend Northeastern University, but ultimately left school and joined the United States Navy. During his time with the Navy, Eric was assigned to the USS Pinckney stationed in San Diego, CA and worked as a Yeoman (YN). Eric received several recognitions during his service including a Global War on Terrorism Service Medal.

Eric was a talented athlete and loved playing hockey. He enjoyed fishing, JETS football and good food. He was blessed with three beautiful daughters, and he loved them more than anything. Eric will be remembered as a free-spirited man, who marched to the beat of his own drum.

Eric is predeceased by his grandparents Miriam and Abraham Baker and Lucille and Karneig Tashjian. He is survived by his loving parents Dr. Frederick and Gail Baker, his sister Alexis and her husband Adam, wife Cherry Anne, and daughters Alyssa (11), Brooklyn (8), and Casey (7), niece Sloane and nephew Ashton. Eric is also survived by his extended family including his uncle, aunt, cousins, and many friends he met over the course of his life.
