09/22/2008 07:00PM



Travis Barker's apparel/lifestyle company Famous Stars and Straps released this video exclusively to PEOPLE as a tribute to his friend and assistant, Lil' Chris Baker.

Along with bodyguard Charles "Che" Still and two pilots, Baker was killed in the fiery plane crash on Friday in Columbia, S.C., that also seriously injured Barker and DJ AM.

Friends and colleagues describe Baker as "a trouper."

"He really represented Travis and his company in the best way I've ever seen," says Tal Cooperman, who runs fellow skater brand DCMA Collective.

Baker is survived by his wife and 2-year-old son.

Meanwhile, DJ AM (real name Adam Goldstein) updated his Facebook profile to now read: "Adam Goldstein is ALIVE!!!!!!"

Memorial funds to assist family survivors have been established for Chris Baker and Charles Still. Contributions may be sent to the respective funds at the following address:

Memorial Fund
1840 S. Milliken
Ontario, CA 91761
