Clyde Edward Baker was born August 9, 1917 on a farm near Wayne to Frank and Margaret (Negley) Baker. He attended rural school in Wayne County. He served in The United States Military during World War II as an Army Engineer. Clyde married Inez Baier January 3, 1946 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Wayne. The couple retired from farming in 1984, moved into Wayne in 1991, and to Laurel Assisted Living in May of 2009. Clyde was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church and V.F.W. He enjoyed his farming and working outside in his yard, mowing and trimming even up to early last spring.
