Gonna miss his greeting - "Hi Squirt!" Uncle Baker was bigger than life and had a huge heart for his family, friends and all creatures! He always had our backs growing up! I couldn't be there with my family but my heart was there.

Pauline, Elliott and family and Eric,
So sorry to hear about Baker. He was a good man and I am so very sorry for your loss. I will always remember what a great comfort Baker was when Portia died.

One of my earliest memories is riding in a white convertible down River Rd. top down with my Uncle Baker driving. He lived his life on his terms and when the Pearly Gates opened you better believe that Baker Truman got a fine set of flashy wings.
Will be seeing you Uncle Baker. Hugs to Grannie, Mom and the rest of the family
Love ya !

My condolences to Pauline and the family. Although I haven't been with Baker except on facebook in years. As childhood playmates we spent many happy hours at our grandparents playing (LaGrange, Ky.) RIP Baker you are very loved. Ruth Nowlin Partlow, (Akron, Ohio)
