139th Inf. Co PFC

Orville "Buck" Perry Baker passed away on Dec. 22, 2010, at the age of 89. He was born on Sept. 24, 1921, in Darlington, Mo., to Elizabeth and Orval Baker.
The Winters area has always been home for Baker. That's where he met Norma Lowrie, whom he married on Nov. 5, 1944. Together they raised four children, Larry, Steve, Karen and Rick.
Buck was a great welder and worked for many years on a Winters ranch, where he made a name for himself with a lot of the local farmers. He then took a job with Johnson Farm Machinery in Woodland, where he worked until he retired. When he wasn't working, he enjoyed watching sports, especially football. He was a simple man who rarely complained and was very easy going, family members said.
After the death of his wife Norma, he met and married Debbie, who survives him.
Baker also is survived by his sons Larry and wife Gloria of Redding, Steve and wife Cindy of Winters, and Rick and wife Diana of the Dominican Republic; daughter Karen and husband Steve of Winters; sisters Marge McEathron, Colleen Duke and Delores Soares; brother Jack and wife Aloha; grandchildren Stacey Baker, Steve and Dani Ramos, Matthew, Nathan, Jeff, Andrew Baker and Allison King, Autumn and Amber Baker, Briana and Christian Baker and many great-grandchildren, nephews and nieces.
Baker is preceded in death by his first wife Norma, his brother Laverne and three brothers-in-law, Dick McEathron, George Duke and Ernie Soares.
A celebration of his life is planned at 11 a.m. Dec. 30 at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, 435 Anderson Ave., Winters. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to an account at First Northern Bank.
