John Baez

BAEZ, John, 54 years of age, unexpectedly went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020. John was full of life, charismatic, caring and loving man. Knew no stranger, and loved all. He enjoyed the outdoors and was a truly patriotic person. He loved his son Johnnie immensely and will truly be missed by all. John worked for several years with, D and S Rentals of Portsmouth, as an Electrician. He is preceded in death by his parents, John Vernon & Katharina (Paustian) Baez. John is survived by his devoted son, Johnnie Baez, of Portsmouth, two sisters, Joanna Heilbrun and Camille McManaman, nieces and nephews, girlfriend, Michelle Smith, of Portsmouth and friend, Tammy Baez, of Portsmouth, many friends, and very special cat, Cleo. Due to the COVID restrictions the family has decided to postpone Celebration of John's Life Gathering, to a later date. F.C. Daehler is caring for the family.

John was a loving and kind person. He cared so deeply and you could see every emotion when he was telling a story of his life. I seen tears to pure happiness. I was blessed with the time we had together and he is dearly missed. I loved him with all my heart and so did my children. Thank you John for all the beautiful memories we had together. Mathew, Samantha, Noah and Abigail miss you and love you. Love Michelle

John was a kind spirit, he didn't know a stranger. We at D & S Rentals will miss him and his humor. Prayers to all of his family.

John was not only a key member of the staff at D & S he was a friend and part of the family to many of us. John seemed to never know a stranger and had a kind heart. Many of the tenants if they had a problem would call the office and say "Send John" or "Send that that nice guy from New York". All of us have personal fond memories of John. He will be missed. John often spoke of his son Johnnie with great pride and respect for his mother Tammy. Cleo was also part of the crew. Our hearts go out to the family and all those whom John loved and were part of his life. Staff and Friends of D & S
