This post was submitted today by Buddy’s son Darrell Baker.
Buddy Baker started in late 1953 at the warehouse on 36 and north Santa Fe and then in Edmond. He worked until McCrorys shut it down in 1988. The airport authority bought his house in 1995 that he had lived in since March of 1954. He then moved to Alex Oklahoma where he passed away at his home on October 22, 2012. Several things I remember as a child is my dad always getting home at the same time everyday, the night every year at Springlake amusement park, and my dad playing softball on the TG&Y team at Wheeler park on South Western.
