Chuck Baker is the manager of the San Francisco Assisted Living facility. Homicide Detectives "Pookie" Chang and Bryan Clauser encounter Baker when they visit the Assisted Living facility to visit Francis Parkmeyer for questioning and are later contacted by Mr. Baker when Mr. Parkmeyer was cognizant enough to answer questions.
Baker is described as being middle aged average looking fellow. Everything was average about Chuck – his height, build, looks – all except his hairline, which was described as receding only on the left side of his head. This was such an odd feature that it caused people to stare at him.
Baker is a conscience manager of his facility. When the detectives came to visit Francis Parkmeyer, he met them and assisted them with their request. He was quite familiar with Mr. Parkmeyer, knowing that he was periodically senile. When Mr. Parkmeyer drooled, Baker was quick to assist by wiping it away. In fact, he was so quick with the towel that Baker was described as being “faster than an old west gun fighter”.
