Obituary for Eric Leroy Baird

Eric Leroy Baird was born on June 29, 1959, in Winnemucca, NV to Dorothy Esther (Lee) Baird and Allen Lee Baird. He was the fourth of four children. Eric grew up in Roseburg, OR and graduated from High School there in 1977. From there he attended Central College in McPherson, KS, where he met Anita Johns. The two of them would spend the next forty years being head over heels for one another. They were married on June 21, 1980 in Midwest City, OK and celebrated their 37th wedding anniversary last year. On September 17, 1985, Andrew Allen was born in Midwest City. Then on March 28, 1988 Sarah Elizabeth was born in Midwest City. He was a faithful servant and active member of the Midwest City Free Methodist Church. Eric worked for the FAA for thirty years and upon retiring from there, became the CEO of the Butterfield Memorial Foundation. He enjoyed golfing, flying, and spending as much time as he could with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Eric was welcomed with open arms into Heaven on May 16, 2018 after fighting valiantly against Pancreatic Cancer for the past 16 months.

He is survived by his wife, Anita (Johns) Baird; his son Andrew (Allison) Baird; and daughter Sarah Baird; his grandchildren: Corrin, Addie, and Benson (all Andrew); his siblings Bonnie Borodko of Salem, OR; Myron (Lisa) Baird of Richland, WA; and Cecil (Kris) Baird of Salem, OR. He was preceded in death by his parents: Dorothy (Lee) and Allen Baird.
