Happy Birthday Bake!!

This is the preacher, Harold Jeff Baker and today is his birthday. He would have been 91 years old.
He was the oldest child of David Jefferson Baker and Ida Leona Friels. He graduated from Loco High School in 1937.
He married my grandma, "Ma" and they had three children. As a young man he worked as a roughneck and got the nickname "Bake" in the oilfield.
God called him to be a preacher and he gave up a promising career with Halliburton to go into the ministry. He gave 50 years of his life to preaching the gospel.
Happy birthday Bake!! Love, Territory Mom
