Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

IN MEMORY: TOMMY BAKER

I have just received the sad news that Tommy Baker has passed away, Hopefully I will have details soon. Evidently the cause of death was a heart attack.
Penny just forwarded this Sue Lenz email.

Just a quick note to let you know some sad news.

It seems yesterday morning Tommy Baker, son of the late Judy & Billy Baker had been working for the County in Sarasota and when he didn't show up for work they phoned his house, His wife answered the phone and said that she thought he had gone to work but would go an see if his car was still there, She then found him in the garden sitting /laying in a chair dead.......... An autopsy was done and it was determined that it was a massive heart attach, he was 56 years old and didn't have any health problems at all, he has a two & half year old son "Billy Baker"

Tommy was a true Master of the Ring. We always enjoyed having him at our circus. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family as well as his circus family.
