John Stuart Baird, 52, of Charles Town, WV passed away Sunday, February 23, 2020 at the Hospice of the Panhandle IPF in Kearneysville, WV.

Born November 27, 1967 in Arlington, VA, he was the son of the late David Stockwell Baird, Sr. and Nancy Sasscer Baird.

He was a member of Fellowship Bible Church.

John “JB” had a servant’s heart. He brought people together and never met a stranger. There were very few things he could not fix, either in mechanics or relationships.

He is survived by his loving wife of 30 years, Mary Ann, at home; two daughters, Sara Kila Baird of Charles Town and Jessica Katina Baird-Sothen and husband, Eric of Inwood, WV; one son, William Edward Stuart Baird of Inwood; grandson, Cadence Lee Baird; sister, Cathy Baird Blanton and husband, David John; one brother, David Stockwell Baird, Jr. and wife, Lisa and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his step-father, Edward William Casper.

Services were held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, March 2, 2020 at Fellowship Bible Church, 169 Daniel Road, Shenandoah Junction, WV with Pastor Van Marsceau officiating. The family received friends one hour prior to the service at the church.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Fellowship Bible Church, 169 Daniel Road, Shenandoah Junction, WV 25442.
