My deepest sympathies to the family of this wonderful man. He was my doctor as a baby until I was 18 or 19 yrs and the most caring doctor I ever known. There will never be another like him. So glad mom and I were able to chat with him one day last year when we saw him at the Heights post office. He will be dearly missed.

God's comfort to you all,

Denise Truelove

Lauren, your dad was simply "the best". He loved what he did and it showed in the way he took care of his patients. You and your family are in our prayers, Lisa Warden

Gretchen and Lauren (and all the Baldwins):

I was sorry to here of your dad's death today. I much enjoyed being your neighbor growing up and your dad's patient, as he was my last pediatrician in practice with Robert Henry at the time.

My family having benefited from The Holy Souls School for Exceptional Children (now The Allen School) I am most grateful to donate in his memory.

Sending my love and condolences to Dr. Baldwin's family. He was my doctor as a child and probably is the reason that I am NOT that scared of needles! He always was a gentle and kind man. He will be missed, and Heaven surely knows how special of an Angel they have received.

Dr Baldwin was a gem when it came to kids. 23 years ago he started treating my oldest son and I blessed him with 2 more. My youngest Kyle (17 now) loved Dr. Baldwin because he was short like him and when he retired Kyle was none too happy with him. Dr. Baldwin was a real blessing to our family as I know he was too many others. He made a difference in alot of family lives and I am sure he left alot of good memories for his family. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dr. Baldwin was loved and will be missed by so many that he served and helped during his lifetime, but I know he will be missed the most by his family. I have fond memories of what a kind and gentle man he was who was constantly surrounded by a house full of women and their friends!! Rest in peace, Dr. Baldwin, you did yourself proud here.

Deane was anintern on the Pediatric service when I was a resident. I have known Deane a very long time and have always considered him a very good friend. Deane got the nickname "Flea" during his pediatric training.. He may have been small but he was a geiant of a friend.
