John, I'm in dismay. I just found out about your passing today (1/13/17) You were such a wonderful man. We had a lot of fun times (especially traveling) Thank you for being so good to my family. We are very grateful that you were in our life for almost a decade! My hope is that you knew our Lord & Savior, Jesus Christ. Brittainy Hockaday - Thomas, January 13, 2017 I met Dr. Baldwin several years ago and we became friends. He was always willing to help in every way possible when I needed it. I am so saddened by his passing and will miss him. Jarrod Qualls, July 12, 2016 I am greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. John Charles Baldwin. I'm sending your family my most sincere condolences and deepest sympathy on this big loss. Dr.Svetlana Kishchenko School of Population and Public Health University of British Columbia, Faculty of Medicine 127-2206 East Mall, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z3 Tel: 604.822.3990 Email: Svetlana.firstname.lastname@example.org Svetlana Kishchenko, June 13, 2016 I am shocked and saddened to hear of John's passing. In addition to being one of Las Cruces High School's "best and brightest", he was also a very kind, compassionate, caring man with a highly evolved sense of humor. He possessed that very rare ability to be both in the highest realm of intellect while still being "cool". John was truly a hero and an exceptional, standout individual. I am heartened to see that he has brought what seems to be 2 very fine young men into the world and grandchildren, as well. This world is much better off due to John's presence here for his 67 years. Not only his numerous extraordinary accomplishments, accolades and achievements that he accumulated, but from a karmic perspective, he truly gave much more to our planet and wellbeing than could be expected from a human being. My only major complaint about John is that I didn't spend anywhere near the amount of time with him since high school that I would have liked to. I now will cherish and deeply appreciate the two interactions that I had with him at previous reunions. My deepest condolences to the family. May you be strengthened by the fact that you were honored and blessed to have him in your lives and in the case of his sons and grandkids, in your genes and that you will be further blessed by passing those genes on. Whenever you start to miss, long and mourn him, do yourself a favor: Immediately stand up, look in a mirror or look at other offspring of him, either in photos or live, and be comforted by knowing that his soul, essence and sprit is still very strong and blessedly present in you and other offspring as well and will continue to live and thrive as long as his gene pool is passed on. To you, Mrs. Baldwin, you can be extremely proud and satisfied that you contributed to your wonderful family both genetically and in the loving years you spent with John. I actually was hoping that John would be attending the 50th reunion (I'll be missing the 49th) so that I could spend a few precious moments with him catching up and introducing him to my new family, my wife Monika and children Nathan and Lola, especially since he knew my parents whom they were named after. Instead, I will cherish his blessed memory. Sorry for the late response, but I just NOW was informed of his passing in the memorial section of our class reunion website. David Weiselman, June 6, 2016 It was a privilege to work with Dr Baldwin in his role as a member of the Defense Health Board. He will be greatly missed.
Doug Rouse, MD, April 27, 2016 Our family had known the Baldwin family, John and his parents since John started first grade here in Las Cruces, New Mexico, at Alameda Elementary School. He and our son were in the same grade and room and were good friends all through school. They graduated from Las Cruces High School together in May 1967. John was in our home numerous times during those twelve years and we loved him. He was a fine young man and excelled in the band and his academics. We were so sad to hear of his tragic death and our sympathy goes to his sons and family. May God bless and give you the strength and guidance you need at this sad time. The Carver Family, James, Jeanne, Keith and Sharon Carver King
Jeanne Carver, April 21, 2016 Our deepest sympathy to the Baldwin family. We have fond members of Dr. Baldwin both as a parent at St. Thomas's Day School and as a parishioner at St. Thomas's Church. He will be missed. Fondly, The Acquavita Family
Fred and Marie Acquavita, April 15, 2016 James West and family - Our deepest sympathies for your loss. May you find comfort in the memories made and the many many lives that John touched. God Bless
Marshall & Tracey Eidson, April 14, 2016 To family and friends of Dr. Baldwin, I am sorry for your loss. May your memories cause you to smile often in the days ahead. I hope the promises recorded at Revelation 21:3-5 be comforting to you during your time of grief.
Char, April 14, 2016 I had the privilege of being a part of the Baldwin Family for over 10 years. The times that saw Dr.John Baldwin were few. But what stood out the most was his love for his profession and his desire to see available health care in every corner of the world. This tragedy has taken a wonderful man who still had so much more he wanted to do for world health. A man who genuinely loved his fellow man . Cherished his friends and family. A man who the whole world will mourn. Dee Rice, April 12, 2016
