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!

Ron was one of the neighborhood kids growing up on Williams Road and we will always have fond memories of those growing up years with our children, Lorie and Bob. We were neighbors and we also worked with Ron at Colgate. He will certainly be missed in the Sherburne Community and at Colgate. You were a great husband and a wonderful father to your boys. Rest in Peace, Ron. ~Bob and Pat Kane.
