I am pops first great granddaughter and have 2 of his great great grandchildren. I am lucky enough to have spent a lot of time with pop and grandma when I was little. There are countless memories with him that I will never forget. I loved hearing the stories he would tell about anything. I'm going to miss him so very much but I know he finally gets to be home with grandma.

Uncle Wilbur was the third brother and then five sisters. There are four sisters now: Ruth, Betty, Mary and Esther. The most wonderful family which extents to thirt-five first cousins and many more. The family continues.
Wilbur Baker was a soft spoken man who had a great sense of humour and he loved his family.
He will be missed.

We have spent 35 years celebrating these two birthdays together in life and now in death. Thank you Wilbur Baker for being the best Father-in-law a girl could hope for. Rest in peace. Love You
