Michael Joseph Baker Obituary
Michael Joseph Baker, age 87, of Inverness, FL, died unexpectedly on April 4, 2016 while under the care of Shands at UF, Gainesville.
Michael was born September 5, 1928 in Latrobe, PA to the late Paul and Elizabeth (Majgar) Baker. On May 2, 1949, he married Patricia Stouffer, with whom he shared 67 wonderful years of marriage until her passing on January 20, 2016. Michael and his wife moved to Citrus County 30 years ago from Monaca, PA. A Catholic by faith, he was a member of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, Inverness. Michael was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Aerie #3992, Inverness. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing, hunting and tinkering in the garage. Michael was extremely handy, saw the value in everything he owned and could fix anything. He will be remembered as a loving caring father and grandfather.
Those left to cherish his memory and mourn his passing are his son: Jay Baker of Monaca, PA; daughters: Donna Marcinak of Inverness, FL and Michele (John) Garland of Mastic, NY. He is also survived by one sister, Pauline Byers of Latrobe, PA; seven grandchildren: Jason, Stacy, Megan, Jennie, Sheena, Mindy and Lizzy; six great-grandchildren: Logan, Lydia, Julian, Jaden, Lucas and Peter; and his loving Welsh Corgi, Bindi. Michael was preceded in death by seven brothers and three sisters.
