Thank you uncle Eugene (June) for servicing our country. Although I never met you because I wasn't born until 1971. It gives me/ your family GREAT JOY to know you were a GREAT MAN OF HONOR WHO loved your FAMILY & COUNTRY. Your sisters and brother are so proud of their big brother, you paved the way for them as well as your entire family your one and only son (Eugene aka Maine) who also never got a chance to meet you as well. It is with GREAT PRIDE & JOY to know you gave your all fighting for your Country. We will forever be so GRATEFUL! You are truly missed by your siblings Howard, Henry, Doretha, Bernice, Robert.

Thank you for being the Pioneer of the Baker's Family

Your Niece,
