Bob Baker Obituary

With a profound sense of loss, we announce the passing of Bob Baker on January 8, 2024. He was born on July 8, 1931 in Buffalo, NY, to the late Leslie and Arlene (Campbell) Baker. Bob Baker was a man of many talents and passions. 

He served our country in the U.S. Navy and then served the United States Government as a diligent postmaster until he retired in 1986. He was a dedicated public servant with an unwavering commitment to his duties. His strong work ethics and charming personality made him a beloved figure among his colleagues and the community. But the story of Bob's life does not end here. He was an avid target shooter, a skilled hunter, and an enthusiastic fisherman, whose favorite place to fish was the pristine waters of northern Ontario. Bob was also a member of the Blasdell Rod and Gun Club, where he spent countless hours enjoying the company of his friends. 

Bob was a loving and devoted family man who is survived by his daughters, Donna (late Fredrick) Potts, Cheryl (Robert) Wanamaker, sister Lorna (late Robert) Blount, four grandchildren, Diana (Mike) Retzius, Christine (Jim) Sikorski, Laura (Rob) Smith, Samuel (Janine) Wanamaker, and six great-grandchildren, Reilly, Alexander, Fiona, Kyle, Evelyn, and Emery. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of over 56 years, Shirley Baker. 

Friends and family may call from 10-11 AM on Saturday, April 27, 2024 at Ross Funeral Home of Akron, LLC where a Memorial  Service will follow at 11AM.
