Goodbyes are only for those who live with their eyes. Because for those
who love with their heart and soul, there is no such thing as separation. –
Charles William Baker Sr. of Tullahoma, Tennessee passed from this earthly
life and into the loving arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on
Monday, July 15, 2019. He was 76 years old.
He was born at his Bakertown home in Moore County, Tennessee on August 7,
1942 to the late Madge Walker and late Lannie Baker. On December 28, 2004,
he married his best friend Mona Faye Chapman, who survives.
He lived life to the fullest and made everyday count. He loved people and
never met a stranger; rest assured, whenever speaking to him, he would
always have something witty, comical, or sarcastical-funny to say. That was
He was a well-known Master Mason for the majority of his life, but was
probably more well-known for what he laid out in the kitchen, be it at his
own home or at the Barrel House BBQ. He truly was a jack of all trades. He
deeply loved all his family and his two dogs Patches and Peaches. He will
be tremendously missed by all who loved and knew him.
