I am so sorry you have moved on and my sympathy to your family. You were so knowledgeable about so many things but I met you at Ft. Loudoun. You were so great at telling us all kinds of history about the fort and one of my fondest memories was going on a walking tour with you all around the fort. That was wonderful! I was not able to make it to your service today but you will not be forgotten. I am sure you are up in heaven now. Goodbye, Mr. Baker, and thank you so much for everything you did.

I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Baker on the 2014 Braddocks Road Preservation Buss tour. I remember sitting next to each other at Braddock's Battlefield History Center, and he taking the time to talk to me, patiently answering my remedial questions about General Braddock. I also remember him telling me "We are all students of history". I took that moment to ask him to sign my copy of his book, he wrote: To Louis "On the Battle Field" Norman Baker. I'll always keep that memory and that day I spent learning a shared passion. RIP Norman Baker

I will forever treasure my memories of Norman Baker and always remember the times with him studying Braddock's campaign on the bus tours and his talks at the many programs I was lucky to attend when he spoke. He was a gentleman in every respect and a dedicated student of American history second to none. His book has a special place in my collection of books about the Braddock campaign and a ready reference when I need it, now and always. Thanks, Norman, for all you did to help our understanding of this most important event. I'll never walk any part of the trail or read about the campaign without thinking of you.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.
