Craig Wilson Baker Obituary
BAKER, CRAIG WILSON; passed away on December 21, 2013. Born on January 30, 1945; Craig was a lifetime resident of Milford. Following graduation from Milford High School in 1963, Craig attended Ferris State University. He was drafted into the United States Army, where he served in Germany, and was selected to play football, as well as, box. Following his time in the Army, he played semi-professional football in California. Craig then embarked on a career with General Motors that would last 30 years, where he worked as a floor supervisor. During this time he also raised his daughter Brooke, as a single father. He generously gave his time to activities in which she was involved, such as, Girl Scouts, Milford Band Parents, and being an awesome father in general. When his career with General Motors came to a close, he retired to police the corner of Detroit Street and Union full time. These duties included, volunteer parking cop during Milford Memories, snow removal, and last but not least, squirrel patrol. When not monitoring the goings-on at 209 Detroit Street, Craig gave his time to the Oak Grove Cemetery Committee and the Milford Historical Society. He enjoyed golfing, fishing in Spider Lake, a comfortable La-Z-Boy, and the History Channel. Craig is survived by his sister, Barbara Baker Blanden (husband David), his beloved dog Willie, and his daughter Brooke Baker Monteith (husband Chad), and two grandchildren, Matthew and Madelyn. A Memorial Service will be held at Coratti's of Milford, Tuesday, December 24, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers please send donations to the Milford Historical Society.
