“Tarik Baker and his three brothers were the sons of Chris Lewis's sister, Barbara Baker. All four boys lived in Pomona, California 91766. Tarik arrived in Guyana on 8/6/1977 and lived in Cottage 06 at Jonestown. He was the second oldest. His brothers were Jair (oldest), Eric, and Shawn (youngest); Dana Lewis was his cousin, and very close to them and her aunt, with whom she may have lived. I remember seeing the four Bakers often together, striking in their bearing and demeanor, in Los Angeles. I only learned recently of their relationship to Chris and Dana Lewis. ” - Kathryn Barbour

“Such a fantastic voice. Such a waste.” - Steve Kent
