Bruce Warren Baker, 63, unexpectedly went home to be with his Lord on March 27, 2017.

Bruce loved spending time at home in Dewitt and up north at Higgins Lake. He enjoyed traveling, fishing, boating and spending time hanging out with family and his many special friends. Bruce was a great helper and liked to share his skills. He attended First Baptist Church of St. Johns. Most of all, Bruce loved his wonderful grandchildren, considering them to be the loves of his life. Papa Bruce created great memories for all.
He was a generous man in life, and continues this generosity after his passing by sharing the gift of life as an organ donor.

Bruce was preceded in death by parents, Gordon and Eileen Baker.
Surviving to cherish his memory are his beloved wife of 43 years, Dawn Graham Baker; children, Todd (Catherine), Karie (Joshua), Justin (Katrina); grandchildren, Antonio, Alora, Avery, Rosa, James, Mario, Nadia, Rocco, Addison; sister, Karen and her family in California; and extended family, the Grahams of DeWitt, the Hamiltons of Laingsburg, and the Bakers of Lansing.

A Memorial Service will take place at 6:00 pm March 30, 2017 at First Baptist Church of St. Johns, 512 S. Whittemore Street, St. Johns, MI 48879 with Pastor Tim Knaus officiating. The family will receive visitors two hours prior to the service at the church.
