Keith V. Baker was born on January 28, 1941 in Colorado and passed away on January 23, 2013 at his home in Downey, California.Keith had a stroke in May 2009 - that kept him from doing what he liked so well - Electronics & Woodworking. He was a very intelligent man - he could fix anything - or even make the part if it wasn't available. He lived his whole life on Cavel Street. Went to Alameda, South and Downey High School. He worked at North Am Automatics, Bowman Auto - Net Electronics. He was self employed - his card said "specializing in the unusual". He helped everyone on Cavel Street, always ready to lend a hand when asked. Last year Downey Rotary club for their "Community Service" painted Keith's house on the exterior. He was very grateful - this is what it's about, giving back. Keith's wish was cremation, no services. He was a great person and friend. He will be missed.
