October 26, 1933 - November 25, 2021
In loving memory ~
With tremendous sadness, we announce the passing of Sydney Roy Baker. Syd passed away November 25, 2021 at the Kiwanis Pavilion in Victoria, where he had resided for the past year, at age 88. Syd was born in Romford, Essex, England on October 26, 1933.
Syd is survived by his loving daughter and son-in-law, Karen and David; his grandchildren whom he adored, Lindsey and Kent; and his precious great grandson, Brody. He was predeceased by his true love, wife Daisy in 2008, and by his daughter, Angela in 2018.
A life well lived, "Sydney from Sidney" had a smile for everyone and always a story to share. He was ready and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone. He will be remembered for his love of family, friends, and his kindness to all, and he will be greatly missed.
The family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to all of the staff at The Kiwanis Pavilion. Every single staff member treated Syd with care and compassion, and we always felt he was loved and valued.
Syd's remains will be placed alongside Daisy's during a short service held at the graveside at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, December 3 at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in North Saanich.
