On Thursday, July 23, 2020, Scott V. Baker passed away after a courageous fight to cancer, at the age of 63. He was a loving son to Sondra and Dieter Wagner as well as Paul and Pam Baker. Scott was also a great brother to Keith A. Wagner, Jille Shelhart, Johanna Herendon, and Jonathan E. Wegner. Scott was born on December 27, 1956, in Akron, Ohio.
He led an adventurous lifestyle in the racing industry. He was well recognized as a race car driver during the prime moments of his racing career. His entrepreneurial spirit was also dedicated to helping fellow race car drivers with his high-performance auto shop. Scott lived most of his life with the love of racing in his heart, between burning rubber on the tracks and long tedious nights at the shop. Towards the end of his racing career, Scott still had a need for speed. His adrenaline-filled life led him to a love for not only high-performance cars but high-performance boats. A day out on his speed boat with loved ones would always bring a smile to Scott’s face.
