More Info

Robert Philip Baker (Bobby) loved his family bigger than the sky and it has broken our hearts that he died all alone, in East Boston Massachusetts.  He was a loving father, brother, son, friend, and everyone's favorite Uncle and was a friend to all whom he met.  Sadly, he was found alone after being sober for two years in an apartment on April 1, 2019 at 10:22am several days after he passed away far away from his Florida home and family while in East Boston.  He died suddenly due to major complications with his heart while exercising.  His children and I are praying to bring him home to Florida to lay him at rest in a Jewish cemetery here where we can visit his grave and regularly pay our respects.  His family is in desperate need of funds to give him a proper Jewish burial in Florida.  Currently, he is at the medical examiners office in Boston, since April 1st.  Noah, our 18 year old daughter and family cannot afford to claim his body and bring him home to lay him in his final resting place with his family in Florida.  It costs almost $6500 and if we are unable to raise the funds, his body will be disposed of by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and he will not even have a headstone, as if he never existed.  Please help.
