William Edward Baker Sr., age 72, of Woonsocket RI, passed away on February 19, 2021 at Landmark Hospital. Born in Providence RI, he was the son of the late George F. Baker Sr. and Alzada (Wilhemina Place) Baker. He is survived by his longtime partner Jodie Farquhar, and six children, Wayne Baker, Gail Baker, Jean Baker, William Baker Jr., Kristy Baker, Tami Garcia, and stepdaughter Andrea Farquhar. He also leaves behind his precious dog, Remmy. Bill had 16 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. Bill is also survived by his brother George Baker Jr., as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his daughter Kelley Rose Baker, brothers Alfred and Kenny Baker, and sisters June Benoit and Sandra Boudreau.
Bill lived most of his life in Rhode Island, but once traveled up and down the east coast singing oldies and country music. His passion was music, playing his guitar and singing as he always loved to entertain. He enjoyed cooking and loved serving up his famous “spaghetti and meatballs.” Bill enjoyed spending time at the beach and loved to swim. He will be remembered for his goofy sense of humor and loving to make people laugh.
Due to safety concerns we plan to hold a memorial service in honor of Bill, after the health crisis is over.
