Dr. Robert Allsion Baker, III Robert Allison Baker, III was born on the 23 of March, 1942, in Jacksonville, Florida. He died on Sunday, the 2nd at 8:39 PM, October 2011, in Meadows Place, TX, at 69 years of age from 3 1/2 years of battling with cancer. He passed away at home with his wife Rose holding his hand.

Several stayed until everything was taken care of, and we appreciate the time you took to be with our family. Our on call hospice nurse, Cotina Whitley also stayed and took care of the details and we thank her for her kindness and graciousness during that unexpected and rapid change of events. Also thanks to the Meadows Police Officer who came to the house and acted so professionally and with kindness. Robert was indeed surrounded by love.
