Life Story for Johnny Baker

Johnny  Baker
BRUCE---Johnny Wayne Baker, 49, passed away on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at Regional One Medical Center in Memphis. Born October 22, 1968, he was the son of the late Buddy Baker and the late Nell Snellings.
Johnny was introduced to Christ at an early age. Later in life he joined New Hope Church of God in Christ where he worked faithfully until his untimely death.
Johnny was educated in the Calhoun City school system, and worked for Golden Chair for a number of years.
He was devoted to his Church, where he worked faithfully. If anybody needed anything done, call Johnny. He would do his very best to take care of it. One of his passions was cooking, and boy, those deviled eggs! He was a very kind and good hearted person, and he will be truly missed in the community.
Pryor Funeral Home is honored to be serving his family.
Visitation will be Thursday, September 13, 2018 from 5:00pm until 7:00pm at Pryor Funeral Home in Calhoun City.

Serving as pallbearers will be Chris Madkins, Michael Herrod, Dan Hall, Benjamin Williams, Taj Gibson, and Roman Moore.
Johnny leaves behind to cherish his memory his step-father, Jerry Snellings; a brother, James (Jessica) Baker of Gore Springs; a sister, Brenda Kaye (Mike) Smith of Vardaman; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends, and also his New Hope Church Family, Emma Ruth Thomas, Norma Madkins, and Makesha Harris.
