MACOMB, IL -- A celebration of life for retired Western Illinois University photographer Linden (Lindy) Baker is tentatively scheduled for 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10 (location TBD). Baker, 72, passed away Nov. 1. Cremation rites have been accorded.

Baker joined the WIU Visual Production Center as a photographer I in March 1990. He was promoted to photographer II in 2002, and retired in November 2009 after 20 years of service.

Baker spent a majority of his life behind a camera as a professional photographer. He also taught science and photography in his early career.

"Lindy," as he was affectionately known by his friends and family, enjoyed capturing moments in time during retirement and had many published photos of wildlife and nature. A full obituary can be found at dodsworthfh.com.
