Baker, Sr., Thomas Obituary

Thomas Nathaniel Baker was born July 8, 1920 to the late Lewis Baker and Pearl McIntosh in Lynchburg, South Carolina.  In the early morning of May 22, 2013, the Lord our God ended his battle and he entered peacefully into eternal life.  He was a devout Christian and had been all his life following the great tradition of the Catholic Church.  He loved the Lord with all his heart and lived his life accordingly in the presence of all who knew him.

Although Thomas was born in South Carolina, the family moved to Washington, DC when he was a young boy.  He received his education in the District of Columbia public school system.  Thomas married Gladys E. Kenney and from this union had two sons, Thomas Jr. and Terrance.  Although they separated they remained close friends, and continued to raise their sons together with much joy.

Thomas’ chosen profession as a chef/baker served him well throughout his life, as he worked for various and asundry private businesses, doing something he loved with patience and skill.  These same attributes: love, patience, and skill can also be used to describe how he dealt with his family and friends.

Thomas will forever remain in the hearts of many, but those who will cherish his memory the most are wife Gladys; children: Nikki, Peter, Mya, Thomas Jr.(Lenore), and Terrance (Patricia),  grandchildren Corey, Tomara, Danyelle and Thomas III, Cherea ; great-grandchildren:  Kenya, Tavon, Daija, Jayla, Tommi, Malachi, Mia Makeda, Tsion, Daniel and Sage; two sisters in-law; one brother in-law and a host of nephews, nieces, great nephews, great nieces and dearly beloved friends, especially Lester, George, Mary and Casey, as well as many others.
