It was an honor have been able to have Mr. Baker as one of my teachers when I was in high school. He had such a positive impact on so many lives. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Baker family.

Jill and Family, We were so happy to hear that the track in De Pere was dedicated to Dan. What a wonderful memorial. Danny was loved by many, including his old classmates like us. We will miss him. Thinking of you. God Bless, The Piasecki Twins, Jean & Joan class of 1972

Hey Bakes I just wanted to thank you again for all the advice you gave me back in highschool. You would be happy to know I used all of you marketing advice and went to get my second degree after culinary arts in business marketing and now work as a full time marketing director. I can't even say I will meet someone who has impacted so many different people in such an inspiring way after meeting you. My thoughts and prayers are with your family and your entire track family. Rest in peace. Love Brittany Depere class of 2008

I am Danny's long lost cousin. My parents moved us out to Utah in 1965. I did not get to see Danny very much. We lived in Ironwood for a bit and I remember playing as kids and visiting in the summers. Danny always had a zest for life even as a kid. My condolences go out to his family.

Thank you, Dan, for teaching us all how to live, give, and love. You taught us this not only through your life and but also through your death. We are all better because we knew you. Thank you for sharing your amazing gifts and spirit with all those around you. With Love, Kristan M. (Pokel) Nelson
