Melvin Kenzil Baker, son of Harry F. Baker and Mattie M. Sisk Baker left this world for his heavenly home in the early morn of July 25, 2020.
Melvin is survived by his wife, Mary, and their six children: Betty Ann Ward (Donnie) of Marshall, VA, Melvin K. Baker, Jr. (Leanna) of Leesburg, VA, Harry F. Baker, II (Janet) of Gaithersburg, MD, Donna Lynn Monk (Raymond) of Stuarts Draft, VA, Paul S. Baker of the home in Greenville, VA, and Gretta Agnes Cason (Brian) of Greenville, VA. Melvin leaves behind 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.
Melvin was preceded in death by his parents, Harry and Mattie, and by his siblings: four brothers, Winston, Harry, Jack, Bruce and two sisters, Margie and Shirley.
Melvin and Mary were married close to 70 years. He loved his family, church family, traveling, and of course “old country ham”! He loved going to church and serving His Lord. He enjoyed life.
