Alvin Baker

Alvin Baker, 79, of Jamestown, formerly of the Edmunds and Pingree ND area, passed away Tuesday morning, Nov 2, 2021 at Sanford Health in Fargo.

He was born September 25th, 1942 in Kensal, ND to Paul and Emma (Overby) Baker of rural Edmunds. At age 12, he yielded his life to God and was faithful until death. He attended Arrowwood country school until he graduated from the 8th grade. He then helped with the farming.

On May 27, 1967, he married Glenda Huisman of Atwater, MN. They had two children, Lyle and Lisa. In 1971, Alvin took over the farm from his dad. Over the years, Alvin and Glenda enjoyed traveling extensively throughout the United States and Canada. Alvin enjoyed farming until he retired in 1989. Alvin and Glenda went to Texas for the winter for several years. They lived on the family farm until 2018 and then they moved to Jamestown.

Alvin is survived by his wife Glenda, son Lyle of rural Buchanan, ND, daughter Lisa (Marc) Guenther of New Salem, ND. Grandchildren Megan Guenther of Grand Forks, ND and Aaron Guenther of New Salem, ND, brother Gene (Ruthie) Baker of Alexandria, MN, brother-in-law Jim (Betty) Huisman, Litchfield, MN, 5 nieces and nephews, many cousins and friends.

So sorry to hear Alvin is gone. Had a few times with Alvin but not as many as my brother Art. May he rest in peace.

We very much appreciated being able to watch the service. Alvin was a special cousin to me and my sister when we were young, always kind and fun to be with when we visited Uncle Paul and Aunt Em on the farm, and he was the same throughout his life. We are thinking now of the family and others who will miss his presence the most, and are comforted with the knowledge that he's beginning to learn and enjoy the fullness of what he had lived for from his youth.
