So sorry to hear of Dr Baird’s passing. What a kind and upright man! He was always such a quiet, soft-spoken gentleman and I appreciated his understanding diagnosis many times. he was always someone I looked up to as a deacon of Lexington Avenue Baptist Church. He will be missed.

Dr. Baird came and sat with us all night on 11/15/71 and delivered a 9 lb 9 oz baby boy named Michael. We were grateful he was there with us. He was a wonderful doctor. Condolences to the family.

Dr. Baird was very kind to my grandmother and I. He treated both of us over the years. I recall him making a house call during a winter when my grandmother had pneumonia, at her home outside of Perryville. My deepest sympathy to his family in has passing. The memories he has left are such a gift to all of us.

So sorry to hear of Dr. Baird’s death. He was our family doctor for many years, and a fellow church member. His son Jim was a high school classmate. I remember how calm and reassuring Dr. Baird always was as a physician, and I will never forget his extraordinary kindness. I remember him letting me take a favorite stuffed toy into the operating room with me when I was five or six. Having that familiar toy to hold as I counted backward into the fog of anesthesia meant so much. A few years later, as I sat in the ER at McDowell Hospital with my freshly broken arm wrapped in a towel, biting my lip to keep from crying, I knew when I saw Dr. Baird arrive that everything would be all right—and it was. What a good, long life he had. Deepest sympathy to the family.

My family loved Dr. Baird. He was such a caring person. He was such a sweet man that every Sunday morning after church he would come over and help my daddy get his feet in the car. Deepest sympathy to the family. Love and miss you Betty.

So sorry to read of Dr Baird’s passing. My deepest condolences to the entire family. He and Dr Sisk hired me for two summers when I was working on my BSN. He was a great teacher and would come and find me to show me something unusual. Mostly, he impressed me with his ability to show empathy and kindness to all his patients. A life lesson for me. May God’s perpetual light shine upon him.

I am sorry to read about Dr. Baird’s passing… I remember Dr. Baird as a very kind and caring person. He removed my tonsils at my ripe old age of 21. I also used to play a lot of tennis with his son Jim, and Dr. Baird was very helpful as a Tennis dad helping out with both the boys and girls tennis teams from Danville high school in the early to mid 1970’s . I know that he will be missed by family and friends and that he was loved by many. My condolences to the family. God Bless him and God rest his soul. Rest In Peace, Dr. Baird ❤️
