Bobby Joe Baker

Bobby Joe Baker, age 80 of Terrell, Texas passed away on April 15, 2022. Bobby was born on June 1, 1941 in Talty, Texas to parents Thomas Henry Baker and Lillie Mae (Hailey) Baker.

Bobby grew up on the family farm and that’s where his good work ethics were instilled in him. Bobby was an incredible hard worker and loved to help with the tractors and cattle. He was a huge help with fixing the tractors when they needed it. He also worked for the City of Dallas, Terrell ISD and even showed his handy work skills remodeling homes. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do. In his later years he enjoyed doing some woodworking or even spending time in his garden. It is safe to say that his happy place was when he was on his tractor, he mowed the fields that ran along side highway 205 for many years. Bobby truly had a heart of gold and would do anything for someone in need.

Bobby is preceded in death by his parents; five brothers: Thomas Baker, Jack Baker, Billy Baker, Lloyd Baker, Floyd Baker; three sisters; Marie Kearney, Lou Ann Luttrell and Dorothy Baker; one daughter Lesia Gail Thornton and one grandson Donald James Brown.

Those left with cherished memories are his children: Bobby Russell Baker from Canton, TX, Brenda Sanders from Crandall, TX and Patricia White and husband Robert from Caddo Mills, TX and their mother Ida Baker; brother Jerry Mack Baker and wife Mary from Terrell, TX; nine grandchildren: Brandon, Cody, Brittney, Kayla, Marissa, Dylan, Dalton, Cortney and Caitlin; five great grandchildren: Braun, Preston, Ethan, Levi and Haven along with many nieces, nephews and other beloved family and friends who will miss him dearly.
