Connor Berkeley Baker, 20, of The Plains, Virginia passed away in the loving embrace of his parents on January 26, 2021, in Richmond.
From a young age Connor was known for his love of lighthouses, especially the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in Dare County, North Carolina, where he enjoyed many summer vacations. As he grew, his love of adventure took him farther, to Italy, England, Scotland, Uganda and more.
Connor attended Grace Episcopal Church in The Plains, where he was baptized and raised. He was an alumnus of Little Graces Preschool, Wakefield Country Day School, and a graduate of Kettle Run High School. Connor was deeply connected to his friends, new and old. He was an animal lover with many pets over the years. He was a sophomore at Virginia Commonwealth University pursuing a degree in criminal justice and he loved exploring Richmond.
Connor is survived by his devoted parents, Jon and Kathy Baker; his brother, Campbell; his maternal grandparents, Charles and Margaret Trefzger of The Plains; his paternal grandparents, Jim and Joan Baker of Fredericksburg, and his loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and godparents.
Let us put our hope in the knowledge that Connor is now in the care of his loving and compassionate heavenly father. May the God of peace draw us close as we mourn the loss of this extraordinary, courageous, and deeply loved young man.
A graveside service is planned at 2 p.m. Saturday, February 13, at Little Georgetown Cemetery near Broad Run.
