Bo Michael Baker

January 25, 2013

Bo Michael Baker, 21, of Fort Plain, New York passed away suddenly on Friday, January 25, 2013.

Born in Gloversville, NY on October 3, 1991 he was the son of Kenneth Baker, Jr. and Theresa Fassett Baker. Bo was a graduate of Fort Plain Central School, where he was the catcher on his High School Baseball Team, joining his brothers in their love of the game.

Bo's mother will never forget his smile that lit up her day. His father will always remember his cannon of an arm and his brothers will always say he shared a quality of class with his favorite baseball player, Derek Jeter. Bo was devoted to his paternal grandparents, Vonnie and Kenneth Baker, Sr. and he would do anything he could for them.

Bo was also a member of the High School Bowling Team and played college baseball at FMCC/SCC.

Bo was the kind of small town country boy everyone loved. He touched the heart of so many with his ability to light up a room with laughter and an amazing sense of humor.

Bo loved hunting, fishing, playing horseshoes, working on cars, camping, music, his Mustang and Ford truck and collecting knives. But most of all he enjoyed hanging out with the boys, especially Ryan Kane, R.J. Whiteman, Cianan Porter, MarquisEley, Justin Smith and Chris Gattman. Bo truly enjoyed time with his many friends and his brothers, who were his best friends.

Special thanks to Coach Craig Phillips and the Fort Plain Coaching Staff for all their years of coaching and guidance.
