Harry Lewis Baylor, was called to his heavenly home on Sunday, November 2, 2008.
Harry was born on January 1, 1921, in King and Queen County, Virginia to the late Harry W. and Gustavia Corbin Baylor.
He was preceded in death by his devoted wife Susan Ellen Baylor, one son Harry S. Baylor, one sister Dorothy Brown, and two brothers Elwood and George Baylor.
Harry was educated in the King and Queen County public school system. He joined Bethlehem Baptist Church at an early age; and was joined in Holy matrimony to the late Susan Ellen Berry in 1948. To this union they were blessed with four children ~ Warner, Harry (Sylvan), Stanley, and Crystal.
As a child and young man Harry farmed with his father and uncles until he was called to serve his country in World War II for the U.S. Army. As a serviceman he was a part of the Red Ball Express 3869th Truck Co. He received numerous medals and citations of valor for his service.
He worked for various sawmills before beginning employment with Quality Automotive where he was employed for 20 years until his retirement in 1988. Harry had a strong work ethic.
Although he had officially retired, he continued to help friends and family doing odd jobs. He would often say, "idle hands make for the devil's workshop."
Harry was a caring and hardworking man that was devoted to his family. He was a man of his word and instilled that in his children. He enjoyed current events and could be found watching the news at anytime. He never liked to say "goodbye," but preferred to say "keep your chin up, and don't take any wooden nickels."
He leaves to cherish fond memories, two sons Warner L. Baylor (Joyce) of Warsaw and Stanley G. Baylor of Millers Tavern; one daughter Crystal B. Satchell (Marwin) of Suffolk; five grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, one great-great-grandson, one very special niece Joyce Overstreet of Louisville, Kentucky, and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
