Ted Donald Baker, 78, passed from this earth after his hard fought battle with cancer on Thursday, June 15, 2017. It was a battle he approached like every other adversity in his life; with determination and without any type of complaint.
Ted was born October 1, 1938 to Samuel Lynn and Lola Mae Baker in Joppa, Tx; the 8th of 12 children. He graduated from Bertram High School in 1957.
After graduation, Ted worked as a union insulator for 44 years, a proud member of the Asbestos Workers Local 87. Ted loved hunting and attending his grandchildren's sports events.
He married the love of his life, Geraldine, on September 5, 1960 and spent the next 57 years devoted to her and to his family. He and Geraldine had 3 children, Dianna, Donna, and Greg; and were later blessed with 8 grandchildren and a great grandson.
He spent the entirety of his life providing for his family and living his life as a role model to those that looked up to him.
Ted is survived by his wife, Geraldine, daughters Dianna Jarrett and husband Michael, Donna Rawls and husband Tony, son Greg Baker and wife Andrea, grandchildren Konnie Schoenfeld, Calvin Schoenfeld and wife Tori, Ashley and Christopher Rawls, Chelsea Morren and husband Zach, Taylor, Tanner, and Cayden Baker, great grandson Jaxon Schoenfeld, and loving friends and acquaintances too many to list.
