Paul W. Baker, 73, of Boiling Springs, passed away on Saturday, November 4, 2023, at Penn State Hampden Hospital.
He was born December 6, 1949, in Carlisle to the late Jacob H. Sr. and Virginia P. (Adams) Baker. Paul was the widower of Nancy K. (Mountz) Baker to whom he was married for 41 years when she passed away in March of 2009.
Paul retired from the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission after 20 years of employment. His love for driving trucks led him to work for Crow Trucking in Elizabethtown and for Allen Distribution where he worked for the last 10 years and was still currently employed. Paul honorably served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam Era. Paul was a very generous man who never denied a request for help or passed by someone who seemed to be in need.
He is survived by one brother Jacob H. Baker Jr. of Carlisle; and eight nieces and nephews, Laverne Baker Jr., Jeffrey Baker, Edward Baker, Cherie Marie McDowell, Lynette Lively, Christopher Baker, Vonda K. Baker, and Stephen E. Myers. In addition to his parents and his loving wife, Paul was preceded in death by two brothers, William Baker and Laverne Baker Sr.; one sister, Emma L. Yocum; and one sister-in-law, Audrey L. Baker.
