Gordon Robert Baker was born October 16, 1945 in Detroit Lakes, MN to Arthur and Mary (Manning) Baker.  He was raised and educated in Frazee, graduating in the class of 1964.  Gordon was united in marriage to Diane Craft, August 28, 1965 in Detroit Lakes.  They made their home in Minneapolis 1965 - 1969 when they moved to Frazee.  During his working career, Gordon owned and operated his own auto repair business, worked for Thorson Road Construction and, along with his wife, operated Country Tackle and Krafts.

Gordy loved life on the family farm, hunting and fishing. He enjoyed evenings sitting in his truck watching the deer enjoy the food plots he planted. He was quick witted, kindhearted, generous to a fault, hardworking and love to get his friends and family riled up. When his big blue eyes lit up and the smirky grin showed up you knew you had been got and then belly laughs would follow. Gordy’s kitchen table was a daily meeting place for friends and family to gather over a cup of coffee for lively conversation. He was deeply loved and will be greatly missed.

He is preceded in death by his wife Diane, his parents, and his 11 brothers and sisters.  Gordon is survived by and will be deeply missed many nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
