It has been a sad week for us. Our very good friend passed away May 12, 2009. We are speechless but to say that life is so short and make every day count as if it's your last. I put in his Obituary for you to see because it was so touching and in hopes you will say a little prayer. Also here is the link for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society,any donations would be very much appreciated. http://www.leukemia-lymphoma.org/hm_lls.
Theodore Scott Baker
February 07, 1964 - May 12, 2009
Here's to those who are missing and those who are missed. U.S. Army Captain Theodore S. Baker (aka 2th Fairy) passed away at the age of 45 on Tuesday May 12th, 2009, after a short battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, in Melbourne, FL.
Ted was born in Lynchburg, Virginia and joined the Army in 1983 after graduating Granby High School in Norfolk, VA. He traveled the world during his 20 year career in the Army, combining Army training and business with exploring new places and meeting new people. He was indoctrinated into the Hash House Harriers in Seoul, Korea, got hooked on it's irreverent lunacy, and jumped in with both feet. Given the hash name "2th Fairy", he went on to start up two new hash kennels,
one in Oklahoma City and one in Savannah, GA.
2th Fairy was a born leader, a gregarious young man, with a sharp wit who caught many people off guard. Those who "got" him loved him. Those that didn't, don't know what they missed out on.
He is survived by his uncle, Jerry Baker, and thousands of harriers and harriettes, all who will raise a toast to our beloved brother hasher (may he go in peace).
Military memorial services will be held on Monday May 18th, 2009 at 7:00pm at First Landing Chapel at Fort Story, 600 Port au Prince Rd., Virginia Beach, VA 23459. (Arrive early to clear security checkpoint)

Donations may be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, via Team in Training
