Michael was born in Denver, Colorado to Len Lee (Jr.), and Mary Ruth
Baker. He passed away unexpectedly on November 3 in his home. He resided with his wife, Diane Baker, in Longview, Texas.
For all of those knew Michael, he was always the life of the party. He had a way of making you laugh without even trying. He would also always speak his mind no matter what. He was not only a big guy but was also big in personality and big in heart.
Michael loved to fish. He loved reminiscing with the family over a cold beer or two. He was a big fan of the Dallas Cowboys, no matter what their record.
Michael is survived his wife, Diane Baker; two sisters, Saundra Baker and Deidra Baker; one brother, Len Lee Baker III. He also leaves behind many nieces and nephews, Jessica, Alexandria, Brandon, Brandy; Veronica, Andrew, Aaron, Brian, Maddison, Johny and Alicia.
Michael was predeceased by his parents, Len Lee Baker Junior and Mary Ruth Baker; his siblings, Patricia Baker, Gary Bates, Debbie Bates. Michael's closest sibling was Johny Baker; they were not only close in this life but will be starting their new journey together in the afterlife. Johny predeceased Michael by only a few days. This does not come as a surprise to family and friends.
Michael will be deeply missed by family and friends. Michael would want his life to be celebrated.
As we mourn our loss, Let us have comfort in knowing we all will be reunited one day.
Funeral services are pending but will be held at the East Texas Funeral Home in Longview, Texas.
