Baker, Ernest Stanley – age 79 of Deer Lake, passed away peacefully in hospital on April 3, 2022. Born in Carbonear, Newfoundland on November 17, 1942; he was a son of the late Leonard and Caroline (Brace) Baker. Also predeceased by brothers Jim and Wycliffe.
Stan worked for the Iron Ore Company of Canada for 37 years and remained in Labrador City for 9 more years, before moving to Deer Lake in 2010. During his retirement, Stan spent many hours wandering the halls of the Labrador Mall and chatting with anyone willing to lend an ear. Later in life as mobility became an issue, he enjoyed spending time at home following his beloved Blue Jays & Flyers and was always up for a game of Cribbage.
Leaving to mourn his loving wife of 52 years Ruth (Perry) Baker; children Paul Baker, Lisa Baker (son-in-law Greg Clarke); granddaughter Morgan Baker and step-grandson Tyson Clarke; sisters-in-law Margaret Baker, Marie Baker, Sandra Perry, Sharon Cox (Lou), brother-in-law Glenn Perry and many nieces and nephews.

A special thank you to all the kind neighbours and friends who were there when it was needed most. And to the medical professionals who always showed a special level of care, thank you all!
