After the war, he returned to marry Martha Crossen and later served in the U.S. Air Force in Korea. Raymond served in the Navy on the U.S.S. Missouri. After he was discharged, he went to Washington D.C. to attend George Washington University Law School. While there, he met his wife Anne Garrity and eventually graduated and became a patent attorney. John served at Fort Dix in New Jersey, but during his service, he pursued his artistic ambitions by painting murals in various buildings at the army post. After the war, he attended Duquesne University, Carnegie Mellon University, and eventually traveled to Europe to study art. He later returned and married Nancy Ducci. The Baker family was originally from McKees Rocks, Pa. This image is located on west column F of the memorial.
