Robert Marion Baker


Robert “Bob” Baker, 74, of Berlin, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Saturday, Feb. 24, 2024.

He was the firstborn son of the late Marion Lee Baker and Ann (Disharoon) Baker.

He is survived by his son, Robert Brooks Baker Sr. and wife Andrea, of Berlin. He is also survived by his loving grandchildren, Lily Belle Baker and Robert “Bobby” Brooks Baker Jr. As well as his Aunt Jane Disharoon Bunting; several cousins; and his best friend of 50 years, JC Pruitt.

He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother, Barry D. Baker.

Bob was a Berlin native, graduating from Stephen Decatur High School where he was a high school athlete. He was a graduate of Goldey Beacom College. Bob worked for the Town of Ocean City at Eagles Landing Golf Course for over 30 years, working seasonally over the last 16 years.

Bob continued to enjoy sports throughout his life and kept up with his Orioles, Ravens, NASCAR races and golf tournaments. He spent the past 20 years traveling  the East Coast with his granddaughter Lily Belle, attending all of her sporting events and cheering on her teams. He could be found on the sidelines and in the bleachers ready for a lacrosse or basketball game. “Pop Pop Baker” was a good luck charm and was always wearing his Decatur Blue.

He loved weekly visits catching up with his grandson Bobby, talking and laughing about their favorite movies, TV shows, commericals and actors.

He was at every birthday party, school event, graduation, holiday celebration and loved being a “Pop Pop” to his grandchildren and their friends. His family was his pride and joy. Friends and family would always know when Bob Baker had arrived by hearing his distinctive deep booming “Baker” voice.

He was a creature of habit and you always knew where to find him on any given day or time. He loved to joke and laugh and will be sorely missed.

A Celebration of Life will take place from 2-5 p.m., Saturday, April 13, at the American Legion Post #123 Boggs-Disharoon in Berlin. Friends and family are welcome and encouraged to come.

Arrangements are in the care of The Burbage Funeral Home. Condolences may be shared with the family via
