In Memory of Paul Kern Baker

I would like to write a brief memorial post for wood carver and friend Paul Kern Baker who passed away May 15th 2010.

Paul really enjoyed his time carving. I know that we enjoyed his enthusiasm, generosity, humor and joy of life.

Paul was working energetically on a three foot tall statue of Thomas Jefferson.

Paul was also a talented musician. Here he is entertaining our carving class by playing a guitar that was hand carved by Frank Byrd.

We will miss him. We are all better for having enjoyed the friendship of Paul Kern Baker and I am thankful for a merciful and loving God. Eternal rest grant unto the faithfully departed.
