Captain Jack Baird II Funeral

Jack M. Baird II, Age 62, Of Battle Creek, Died Tuesday, October 14, 2014, at Bronson Battle Creek. Jack was born on April 12, 1952, in Battle Creek; the son of Jack M. and Margaret W. (Lugar) Baird, Sr. He had been a lifelong resident of the area graduating from Lakeview High School in 1970, then attended Kellogg Community College earning his Journeyman Card as a Millwright.  In 1976 he was united in marriage to the former Ruth Ann Jones who survives. He was employed at the Kellogg Company and retired after 39 years as a Millwright. He volunteered for the Bedford Rescue Squad for over 25 years, the Bedford Fire Department for several years and the Johnstown Township Fire Department for 33 years. He enjoyed hunting and was an avid deer hunter, fishing, sports and a handyman. He was someone you could call to ask for anything, electrical work, plumbing or anything that needed fixing. Per his words, he was Jack of all trades and master of none. He was always quick with a dirty joke, one of his dad’s little ditties or a very long story. He was known as the “Grill Master”. He loved cooking, smoking and grilling anything. Surviving are his children, Brian (Kelly) Baird, Shawn Dean and Jack M. (Jennifer) Baird III; granddaughters, Samantha, Ariana and Jane; sisters, Peggy (David) Mingus and Robin Arnold; several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother-in-law, John Arnold. Visitation will be held Friday from 6 to 8:00 p.m., at the Richard A. Henry Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Saturday, October 18, 2014, at the funeral home with Pastor Jeff Worden officiating. Interment will be at Banfield Cemetery. Memorials may be made to the Johnstown Township Fire Department.

Captain Jack Baird

Rest now my fallen brother
Lay soft your suffering back
Rest well and forever
Your memory shall not lack
Rest your tired hands
Wipe clean your weary brow
Rest with St. Florian
Your spirit now endowed
Rest here your breaking heart
We know you gave your all
Rest easy, you’ve done your part
You’ve answered your last call
Rest knowing that in god we sought
Oh lord, watch over another who just fell
Rest assured your troubled thought
As we ring the final bell.

Capt. Jack- You will be missed!
