Day #8 - Obituary


Ian Baker-Pierce
Spanish Fork, Ut
11/26/99 - 1/14/09

At 7:40 AM, while listening to his favorite tape of Krishna devotional music, and while surrounded by his family, our Ian passed peacefully from this world into the next. Ian had a long, hard fight against cancer, but he never gave up the battle, and never lost his incredible spirit. Ian was so strong in life. He was like a little fish, and loved to swim anywhere he could. He loved jumping on the trampoline, then a quick rest to watch the clouds roll overhead. Ian also had strong character, and always stood up for the underdog. He'd rather play outside, even barefoot in the snow, than watch TV, and he often talked about how he looked forward to seeing Krishna one day. We just didn't know how soon that day would come.

Ian is survived by his immediate family: brothers Jacksen (14) and Kevin (19), his sister-in-law Mandi (19). Grandparents Lowell and Debbie Baker, Grandfather Frank Pierce, Uncle Ron Baker, Aunt Sherri Pierce, Aunt and Uncle Terry and Bill Strout, Great Grandparents Shirley and Gerry Gangelhoff, father Dirk (45), and his mother, Joie (35). Unfortunately, there is not enough space here to list all of the family and friends that will miss Ian.

Services will take place Sunday 1/25/09, at 3:30 PM, at the Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple, 8628 South State Road, Spanish Fork, Utah 84660, 801-798-3559. The service is open to the public, and will coincide with the regular temple program. There will be music, dance, philosophy, story-telling, and a delicious buffet style vegetarian feast. Dress is clean and casual. All are welcome! Donations to the family will be accepted at the service, or to the memorial fund for Ian Baker-Pierce at any Washington Mutual bank.
