The Picture was taken at my House in Ocala Florida about 3 weeks ago. A GREAT LOSS to the VANNING Community and this Sight...He was so HAPPY to be in some Warmer Weather and even kicked off his shoes as soon as he pulled in the driveway...His Main Focus was to Keep Bakers Going no matter what happened..!!!...

Reading all of (your) comments means a great deal. G-Man will be missed greatly because of his enthusiasm and dedication. He was a great person and friend. And Joe, Baker's will go on!!! There is a great support group of vanners who have helped in the past and who will continue to help. Chris, Duane, and "Gils" are all smilin' down on us.

G-Man forum fact... He posted a record 30745 times here! adding to our "for sale" section for the benefit of those out there looking, a tedious job he took seriously...

2nd is Donivan65 with not even a 1/3 of G-Man's posts.


God Bless you Chris I love you

Wow! A hard pill to swallow for me. Chris was a legend here at Vintage-Vans and at the Baker's meet. He worked extremely hard at both. The number of posts he made is mind boggling. Great guy and a great loss for sure. I for one will miss him. Baker's will never be the same without his smiling face at the table.

He had a Smile that was contagious! I never met him but have tears in my eyes as I'm typing this. He will be missed dearly! Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family at this time of sorrow. I never met him but hopefully someday I will on the other side. RIP G-Man!!!
