Barber Shop To Donate Wednesday Proceeds To Baker Family

DICKSON, Tenn. - As slain Dickson County Sergeant Daniel Baker was laid to rest, the community grieved alongside family and friends, some even tried to help ease some of the family's pain.

Dickson is where you can find good conversation and make long lasting connections, and for Doc's Barber Shop, that's how they met the Deputy Sgt. Baker.

"Yeah, I cut his hair for a while, and got to know him. I know some of his family," said barber Nathan Cremeans.

Sadly, Cremeans wont be cutting Sgt. Baker's hair any longer. The deputy's life came to an end after he was shot while responding to a call.

"I've never heard anyone say anything bad about him. I've met people he's arrested and they liked him. He treated them fair," said Cremeans.

Sgt. Baker did so much good for the community, Docs Barber Shop wanted to do something for the grieving family.
