David R. Baten, 57, of Hamilton, NY, passed away Saturday, January 23, 2021 at his home.
He was born April 12, 1963 in Patterson, NJ, a son of Robert and Ann Reindl Baten, and was a graduate of Mainland High School, Linwood N.J. On July 15, 1989, David married “Trish” Joyce Patricia Doroshenko at St. Joan of Arc Catholic Church in Morrisville. Dave’s career was in the culinary field and customer service. He loved preparing Italian meals and paid close attention to the plated entree presentation. Dave was an avid sports lover who followed his favorite teams, the NY Yankees, NY Knicks, NY Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys. If Dave was not watching his teams, he’d be watching any game to root for the underdog. David loved the outdoors and going fishing with his son. His favorite movie was “It’s a Wonderful Life” because it reminded him of earlier childhood times. He was a very social guy, who tended to be the clown of the group. Dave would do anything for a good laugh. Dave volunteered his assistance in the delivery of Daffodils for the American Cancer Society to area table sales locations and picking up multiple cases of cookies for the Morrisville Girl Scouts Troops.
He was a communicant of St. Joan of Arc Church. He loved to see his son in the annual Christmas Pageant.
