Martin “Marty” Baker died peacefully at Norton Brownsboro Hospital in Louisville, Kentucky, on August 6, 2022, with his family by his side, at the age of 80 years.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Katherine and Lewis Baker. Marty is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Shari Baker, and lovingly remembered by son, Buddy Baker; daughter, Kim Frey (KC); sister, Judy Borinstein (Ron); grandchildren, Shawn Baker, Drew Frey, and Kate Frey; and great-granddaughter, Norah Baker.
Marty spent his whole career at Sears, beginning in Louisville, KY, and retiring in Chicago, IL in 1995. He then moved back home to Louisville in 1997. Marty enjoyed playing racquetball and backgammon and keeping up with sports (specifically University of Kentucky Athletics). He also loved spending time with his grandchildren. Marty will be remembered for his intelligence, sense of humor, and kind heart.
As he would often remind those closest to him, we will “love you forever.”
