Dr. Darren P. Baker died suddenly Thursday, September 15th, 2022. Beloved husband of Patricia “Trish” M. Cairns, veterinarian, Norwell Veterinary hospital and father of Cameron Baker, Jacqueline Baker, and Graeme Baker. As a Ph.D. biochemist, Darren spent his career trying to improve the lives of others through science. Publishing just shy of 100 papers, Darren’s scientific interest started and remained in research, ending his career as the head biostats and medical hub leader at Sanofi Genzyme. His scientific background complemented his love for nature and all things wild. A known documenter, Darren took great pride in his detailed species lists ranging from fishing, to snorkeling, to amateur birding. Despite these passions, Darren is best remembered for his irreverent wit. After quoting Monty Python, Mr. Bean, or singing Jethro Tull, he stood by his mantra of “never an unexpressed thought” right until the end. A compassionate and caring father, he always found time to embarrass his children by acting himself. Darren brought life into every room and touched every soul across his path, he will be dearly missed. The funeral is set for 11:00am, Saturday, September 24th at St. John’s Parish, 172 Main St., Hingham MA.
