Condolences for Barnabas “Billy” Baker

The Bakers were my God Parents but more than that. They were more like my Grand Parents. She was a true lady. The first woman in the house of delegates. He was a fun loving fella. I remember when I was a kid I would go in his office and look at all the pictures of them back in the 40’s. She worked hard while he was in the service to make a home for him to come back to. Together they ran the Ambulance and Cab company. He was a wonderful historian for the city of Portsmouth. I had been searching for where he had been taken after her passing. They both will and have been missed but not forgotten. They are together again.

“Billy” was a great friend of my dad, Elwood Warren. May they have “old Portsmouth” conversations together in heaven.
