Gerald F. “Jerry” Baker, formerly of Pueblo, Colo., passed away unexpectedly at his home in Aurora, Colo., Aug. 28, 2014. Born in Pueblo on March 15, 1949, he was the son of Floyd and Ellen Baker, both of whom are deceased. He graduated from Pueblo South High School in 1967, and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in mass communications from Southern Colorado State College in 1971. He also was an alternate to the United States Air Force Academy as nominated by Rep. Frank Evans in 1967. In his youth, Jerry was very active in Boy Scouts, earning both Eagle Scout and Order of the Arrow ranks. He also worked as a professional scout for the Calumet Council in Indiana for some time. He was an avid outdoorsman, backpacking and Jeeping with friends over most of the mountainous regions of Colorado as well as some of America’s landmarks. One of his passions was the annual hunting trips he took with friends for 30 years. He was a lifetime member of the North American Hunting Club. He was employed by the original Frontier Airlines in both the Pueblo and Denver airports until the company ceased operation. He then worked in the telecommunications industry for 19 years, first at AT&T, which became Lucent Technologies, and later, Avaya as a tier three engineer. Mr. Baker was a 33 degree Mason and a member of both the Pueblo Silver State Lodge No. 95 and the South Denver Lodge No. 93, where he was a Past Master. Mr. Baker is survived by his sister, Cindy (Steve Robl) of Burlington, Iowa; nephew, Christopher of Dothan, Ala.; niece, Stephanie (Stephen Wenzel); great-nieces, Olivia and Isabella; and great-nephew, Matthew, all of Franklin, Mass.; one aunt, Juanita Price of Astoria, Ore.; as well as two cousins, Penelope Matthews and Marcella Price. At his request, Mr. Baker was cremated, which was entrusted to the Colorado Society for Cremation. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 11, at the South Denver Lodge, 350 S. Broadway, Denver, Colo. The family respectfully requests, in lieu of flowers, that donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
