Obituary for Joe Baker

“A precious one from us is gone, a voice we loved is still, a place is vacant in our home, the world can never fill.”
Mr. Joe Bacon was born on March 20, 1927 in Claxton, Georgia to the late Mr. Ed and Mrs. Mary Jane Bacon. He departed this life on Wednesday morning, August 24, 2016.
He was joined in Holy Matrimony to the late Mrs. Evelyn Slater Bacon in the summer of 1946. He was a member of Green Cypress Missionary Baptist Church, where he attended regularly until his health failed.
Four children preceded him in death: Barbara J. Newton, Sadie Ruth Grove, Mae Evelyn Walker and Charles Beasley. He was also preceded in death by four brothers and two sisters.
