Former Merced Man is Called

MERCED, Feb. 19 - The body of Bela O. Baker, 52, formal [sic] local hardware man and owner of considerable Merced County property, was brought here to-day from San Carlos where he died Sunday after a short illness with heart trouble. Services will be held to-day at 10 A.M. in the Ivers and Alcorn Mission Chapel.

He was the husband of Effie Baker and the father of Donna Jean and Bela O. Baker, Jr.

Baker left here several years ago to accept a position with the Turner Hardware Company of Tracy. Some five months ago he left the management of that store and purchased a hardware store in San Carlos.

While residents of Merced, both Baker and his wife were prominent in church, civic and fraternal affairs.
