Troy Baker

troy baker

February 21, 1938 ~ November 18, 2022

Born in: Bryant , Alabama
Resided in: Conyers, Georgia

Troy Lovell Baker, Sr., age 84, passed away peacefully at his home in Conyers, GA on Friday, November 18, 2022.

Troy was born to the late Hobert and Ruby Baker in Bryant, Alabama on February 21, 1938. He was the 6th of 7 children.

He was married to Sara Virginia Baker for 53 years until her death in 2010. Together they had 5 children.

He is preceded in death by his son, Bryan Baker and his daughter, Shelley Baker.

He is survived by his children Rodney (Carol) Baker, Jodie (Sabas) Ledezma, and Troy Lovell (Deanne) Baker, Jr. and daughter-in-law Pamula Blackwell Baker.

He was blessed and is Pawpaw to 17 grand children and 21 great-grand children.

He was a truck driver at O’Neal Steel for 30 years and then drove for Winn-Dixie until his retirement.

We will miss his kind spirit and sense of humor. He always wore a brass hand belt buckle “holding up his pants” and that became one of his trademarks. He loved to make people laugh. He always had a joke or riddle for you. We like to call them “Baker Jokes”.

Troy was known to write or etch his name on everything he owned and we can take peace in knowing that Troy made sure that his name was etched in God’s book of life.

Memories Timeline


  1. CandleImageThere’s so many things to remember about uncle Troy, his sense of humor was the #1. there’s a poem I just really love…. I just wanted to let yall know I made it home. Everything is so pretty here, so fresh, so new. I wish that you could close your eyes so u could see it too. Please try not to be sad for me, try to understand God’s taking care of me. I’m in the shelter of his hands. Here theres no sadness, and no sorrow or pain. Here there’s no crying and ill never hurt again. Here it’s peaceful when all the angels sing. I really have to go now…I’ve just got to try my wings. PS. I’ll be one of the first faces you will see when u get home. In my heart this is what he would say to all his family and friends. We will always love and miss u

  2. CandleImageAs another family members leaves this earth, it reminds us all of what a reunion they will be having in heaven. The love of his life Virginia. Mama Ruby, Papa Hobert, Brothers Robert, Hueston and Delma Lee, Sisters Roberta and Shirley. Children Shelley, Bryan and grandson David. All waiting to greet him. YEs we will miss his humor, his 5 a.m. phone calls and his stories of driving for ONeil Steel. I cherish the happy moments on earth but rejoice in how happy heaven will be. Love you all and I’m always here with an ear to listen and a shoulder to cry on.

  3. Mr Troy was always a delight to see coming into our church. He always had a smile and a kind word for all. Rodney and Carol and family we are so sorry for your loss. Thanks God we will see him again. We love you all and he will be truly missed.

  4. CandleImagePawpaws obituary says “He was blessed and is Pawpaw to 17 grand children and 21 great-grand children.” I’d have to say that myself and his other grandchildren were blessed to have him as our pawpaw.
    While I will miss him everyday. I will miss hearing his corny jokes, no matter how many times I heard the same ones. I will miss him telling me to always smile, because it makes people wonder what you are up to. I will miss him telling me “if you see an old man give him $100.” When I would greet him with “hey old man.”
    I take some comfort knowing he is reunited with Granny, Uncle Bryan, Aunt Shelley, David, and others that have gone on before and knowing one day we will be reunited in heaven.
