John Baker was a family man who was killed in an accident and injured his children.


John raised his twin children with the help of his sister, Martha, and his lover, Lenny. At some point, the twins spied on John while in the arms of Lenny at their home.


Sleepaway Camp (1983)Edit

John enjoyed a summer outing with his children and lover, and planned on meeting up with Martha afterwards. After he joked around with Peter and Angela on his sailboat, they capsized. Before they could right the boat, a group of teenagers Craig and Maryanne accidentally ran them over, instantly killing John and injuring Peter and Angela.


John is an idealized father. The more loving and fun he is, the harder the loss and more sympathic the audience feels for Angela.
