Sept. 9, 1945 - July 3, 2019

William R. "Bill" Baker Sr. 73, Hollidaysburg, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday following an extended illness.

He was born in Roaring Spring, son of the late James "Donald" and Ruth (McGinnis) Baker.

Surviving are his wife, Brenda, with whom he shared 52 years of marriage; two daughters: Beth (Scott) Greaser of Ridgeley, W.Va., Jeanne (Shawn) Hepborn of Murfreesboro, Tenn.; two sons: William R.

He was first married to Janet (Clapper) Baker, who along with their infant son, Donald E. Baker, preceded him in death. Also preceding Bill in death was his brother, James D. Baker Jr.

Bill graduated from Hollidaysburg High School in 1963. He was employed as a contractor and owner/operator of Baker Builders.

He was a member of Smith Corner Church and was a former member of Reservoir Bible Church. Bill was a man of strong faith, whose highlight of his life was his family.
