George was inducted into the United States Navy on November 6th, 1943 in Louisville, Kentucky, and served during World War II. He was honorably discharged, with the rank of Seaman First Class, on June 19th, 1945, in Oakland, California.

George was united in marriage to Pauline Smither on May 25th, 1944, in Patriot, and to this union four children were born: Ron, Reta, Glenda, and Danny. George was married to his beloved wife, Polly, for 72 years. He was a proud father, uncle, grandfather, and great-grandfather, a devoted church member, and a good neighbor.

George will be remembered for his joking and teasing with family and friends – he loved to make people laugh; sitting in the yard, keeping tabs on all the neighbors’ comings and goings, and waving at anybody he knew; playing basketball with the grandkids – nobody ever shot a basketball quite like Grandpa. He also enjoyed the fellowship of church friends before and after Sunday services and enjoyed telling stories of childhood and teenage shenanigans, odd characters he knew, and hilarious near disasters.

George was always there for Polly, through the struggles and the joys, and worked hard and on the farm. He stayed active, strong, and good-humored despite the challenges of aging. George blessed everyone with his energetic, playful, hard-working spirit. He will be remembered with love and will be dearly missed.

George will be dearly missed by his wife: Pauline “Polly” (Smither) Baker of East Enterprise; his sons: Ron Baker and his wife: Pat of East Enterprise, and Danny Baker and his wife: Karen of Carmel, Indiana; his daughters: Reta Carter and her husband: Russell of Cannelton, Indiana and Glenda Breeden and her husband: Bill of Spencer, Indiana.
