Orris Jack Baker, Sr., son of the late Mazie Finney Fleming & Elijah Baker, was born on February 13, 1931 in Parksley, VA. He departed this life on December 17, 2020, at Northampton Convalescent Rehabilitation Center in Hampton, VA.

He was educated in the Accomack County Public Schools and was a hardworking man. Jack, as he was called by many, put his family first and loved family gatherings. Many times he would travel near and far to be in their presence.

Throughout his lifetime, Jack worked as a long-time truck driver until he retired. Sitting outside under his tree or on the porch was his favorite thing to do. There wasn’t a time he would say “no” to his grandkids, because they knew if they called on “Pop Pop” he would answer and be right there to pick them up.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his loving wife Mazie Baker, sister Jannie Mayo, and his niece Stephanie Wright. He leaves to cherish his memories; six children: Anthony(Nyoka) Baker of Portsmouth, VA, Angie Bailey of Portsmouth, VA, Patricia Northan of Parksley, VA, Wade Bundick of Mappsville, VA, Jimmy White of Accomac, VA and Orris (Miranda) Baker, Jr of Yorktown, VA; 14 grandchildren; 16 great-grandkids; four sisters: Rosa Lee Bailey, Daisy Bailey, Francis West all of Parksley, VA; and Rachel Baker of Accomac, VA; one brother: Ross (Pastor Martha) Bailey of Parksley, VA; a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends. The family would also like to thank Northampton Convalescent and Rehabilitation for their professional caring staff.
