    Greg was a best friend of mine. We grew up together in the bonding years of high school. I will carry those memories and feelings all my life. I also knew Nancy. Real nice girl. I think of them, both, often.

    Hi Jim, Jeanne Taylor here. I think of those two wonderful, happy people often. They come to mind a lot in menemsha, and when I am in the air in the Bahamas. I imagine them today! Wish it were so. Love , Jeanne

    Jim, I didn’t know Greg had passed. What a tragedy but he obviously was doing something he loved to do. He was a great guy

    Thoughts & prayers go out to you Jim. I remember hearing of Greg’s death. Our hearts ached for your family. The unspeakable grief that parents and siblings endure when not only one, but two children die so young.

    Gregory Baker was my brother. We grew up in Berlin CT, sons of Lawrence and Harriet Baker. Greg served in the Dominican Republic.
    He died in an airliner crash during takeoff while returning there from Bogotá Columbia on August 27th, 1973. Today is Greg’s birthday, he would have been 68. I miss him.
