Marvin Clarence Baker, 83 of Rushford, died Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at his home.

Marvin, the youngest of four siblings, was born in Rushford on January 7, 1931 to Carl and Mabel (Maguson) Baker. Marvin’s father died before he was born, which led him to help on the farm at an early age. He served in the United States Army from 1951 to 1953 and was a military police officer in Germany. Marvin was married to Helen Pruka and they were later divorced. For over forty years, Marvin worked construction. From operating a crane, driving truck, to paving blacktops, he helped with several different jobs before retirement. In his free time, Marvin enjoyed fishing, deer hunting, morel mushroom and ginseng hunting, and spending time outdoors.

He is survived by his children, Wanda (Sam) Burden of Readlyn, IA, Dale (Theresa) Baker of Rushford and Philip Baker of Houston; grandchildren, Malerie (Joe) Kreutzer of Brownsville, Stephanie (Royal) Anderson of Rushford, and Trevor Baker of St. Charles; great-granddaughters, Macy and Morgan Kreutzer; brother, Art (Helen) Baker of Winona; sister, Adeline Erickson of Houston; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Milda Nation; and an infant son.

A private gathering was held and burial will take place at a later date at the Veteran’s Cemetery in Preston.
