Eddie Wayne Baker, age 72, of Concord passed away peacefully at his home May 20, 2020. Eddie was born in Mecklenburg County October 4, 1947 to the late Howard Herman Baker, Sr. and the late Alice Hager Baker. He was also preceded in death by his brother, Howard Herman Baker, Jr, commonly known as “Junior”; his aunt “Skeetie” Overcash, Polly Robins and uncle Clyde Robbins.

Eddie leaves behind his loving wife, Jo Ann; his daughters, Amy & husband, Michael Kleiber, of Mooresville and Andrea Baker, of Hudson; step daughter, Katti Shores, of Rockwell; his beloved sister-in-law and caretaker, Mary Jane Cochran; his brother, David Joseph & wife, Laura Baker, of Cornelius; his sister, Betty Baker & husband, Clark Howard, of Huntersville; his grandchildren, Kasey Jordan Kleiber, William Harrison Kleiber, Andrew Keith Hoyle and Samantha Grace Connor; his lifetime friend, Blake Hyde, of Cornelius and friends, Robert & Linda Leonard, of Concord

Eddie graduated from North Mecklenburg High School in 1965. He worked for Charlotte Mecklenburg School System for many years. Eddie and his father were the founding members of the North Mecklenburg Rescue Squad in 1969 and Baker Well Drilling. He was a proud member of Williams 0176 Ancient Free & Accepted Masons in Cornelius NC and a member of Oasis Shriners. Eddie eventually retired from the Charlotte Mecklenburg School System.

It was common see Eddie tinkering around in his bib overalls. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him, especially his furry companions, Daza and Coco.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.

A special thanks to his nurse, Annette with Hospice of Cabarrus County, for her compassion and care during his recent illness and to Mary Jane for her continued care for Eddie over the last seven years.
