On May 13, 1933, Mr. Baker was united in marriage with Miss Hally Cole of Coldwater. To this union was born one daughter, Janet Gaynelle, age six years.

Funeral services were held at the Smith Funeral Home in Spokane and were conducted by Rev. Top, a Presbyterian minister. Burial was in Greenwood cemetery. Mr. Baker leaves to mourn their loss his wife and daughter, his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Baker of Salem; three brothers, Raymond, of Munsing, Mich., and Carl and Hugh of Dodge City, Kans., also two sisters, Florence, of Louisville, Ky., and Mrs. Leslie Harper of Scottsburg, Ind.
