We will always remember the Baker family as huge supporters of Colgate hockey. It was always a pleasure to stop and chat with Ron and his family at the games at good old Star rink and to see them at the many tournaments Colgate men’s hockey played in.
Our heart felt condolences go out to his family .

Ron was the example of how to treat others with kindness a smile and word of kindness. But he would also take you aside and let you know where acting stupid! But he did even that with respect. I will miss you my friend and our text every now and then. RIP brother until we meet again. My thoughts and prayers are with all his family!
