One Tribute to “William M. Baker”

  1. I wish I could be there to pay my respects. Bill and I were in drama together in high school. I will never forget how patiently he guided and encouraged me in my first acting role. I looked up to Bill and admired his dedication and talent, not only in acting but in art and writing, as well. It was truly an honor for me to have him as an advisor and a friend. We lost touch over the years, but I have thought about Bill many times and have always appreciated his kindness and friendship during high school. Sorry to hear of his passing.
