Edward Brice Baker, Jr., 68, passed away at his residence in Bloomington, Indiana, on July 9, 2015.

The son of the late Helen Louise (Michel) Baker and Edward Brice Baker, he was born on June 28, 1947, in Lexington, Kentucky. Ed graduated from University High School in Bloomington, Indiana, and attended Indiana University, for both of which institutions he retained a lifelong affection. He was especially close to his classmates in the University High School Class of 1965 and helped plan for and attended the 50th class reunion held in late June, 2015. After retiring as a manager with AT&T, Ed was eventually able to return to Bloomington and reconnect with many of his friends. He was employed as a bus driver for the Monroe County Community School Corporation, a job which he truly enjoyed.

“Eddie,” as he was known to his family and friends, was a man of many interests, including sailing, classic cars and genealogy. Devoted to his family, whose history he researched intensively, he spent many hours caring for an aging mother before her own death. He not only was a man of many friends but someone who was able to maintain close and vital lifelong friendships. These relationships were one of his life’s greatest pleasures.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife, Joan.

Survivors include a sister, Sharon B. (Robert) Selickman, of Cincinnati, Ohio, a half-sister, Kathy Baker (Bill) Torsell, of Lexington, Kentucky, and several cousins.
