65 year old, William J. Baker, of South Bend, passed away on February 7, 2019.
On June 26, 1953, in Norfolk, Virginia, to Dominic Martino and Thelma L. (nee: Taylor) Baker. William was a drywall finisher and painter, and he worked at MPI. On July 2, 2011, William married Sylenthia Watson. He loved spending time with his sons Anthony & Michael Baker, as well as, spending time with his two granddaughters Kinzey and Alyasia and grandson Jaiden. He loved to go golfing with his brother Patrick, as well as, riding their Harley Davidson with Sylenthia on the back. He loved looking up at the stars with Sylenthia at night and pointing out different constellations together. He loved fixing things and taking care of her, he loved eating her cooking for some odd reason. I lost my biggest fan, and in his eyes I could do no wrong. Any other suitor will have a lot to compete with to fill Billy’s shoes.
William is survived by his wife: Sylenthia, children: Anthony Baker and Michael Baker, Charles, Samenthia, and Yancy, grandchildren: Kinzey, Jaiden, and Alyasiaa. Siblings: Liane (Rick) Hosbrook, William (Linda) Taylor, Patrick Baker, Perry (Sherry) Martino, and Michael Martino.
