Harry Baker, 87, former owner of Franklin Unit Exchange at Second Street and Susquehanna Avenue, died of kidney failure Wednesday, June 11, at Kennedy University Hospital in Cherry Hill.
Mr. Baker, a 60-year resident of Cherry Hill, was president of a philanthropic organization there, Brith Shalom Lodge, in the late 1950s and early 1960s, his son, Brian, said.
Most recently, Mr. Baker was a member of Congregation M'Kor Shalom in Cherry Hill.
Mr. Baker was the second generation to run the exchange, which "dealt with rebuilding of starters and generators and alternators" for cars and trucks, his son said.
Small firms sent such used equipment to Franklin, which returned the repaired units for sale, Brian said.
