Dwight Baker died quietly at home on Saturday, January 15th. He had been hospitalized with stroke symptoms, and later transferred to a care facility. His care was very good, but both Dwight and family wanted to have him at home. VNA Hospice made this possible, along with daily private care by Tashauna Stansbury, CNA.
Dwight grew up in Letcher County, KY. He graduated from MMI (Millersburg Military Institute) and Morehead College. During College, while he was taking “extra courses” at the University of Miami, Dwight met his future wife, Helen, through mutual friends. They were married for 63 years and lived in Vero Beach for nearly 60 years.
He was a CPA (Certified Public Accountant) who enjoyed his work and his clients. A licensed amateur radio operator, call letters W4IJY, Dwight was an active member of the Vero Beach Amateur Radio Club.
Dwight is survived by his wife Helen, daughter Margaret Baker of Portland, OR, son David Baker (Brenda) of Vero Beach, four grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. Arrangements by Millennium Cremation Service; interment at Crestlawn Cemetery, Vero Beach.

The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.
