Joseph J. Baker, 71 of Ballston Lake, passed away March 23, 2013, surrounded by his wife and children at The Glendale Nursing Home after a valiant fight with an unforgivable disease. Born in Amsterdam, NY on January 21, 1942, he was the son of the late Jacob and Adeline Wisotsky Baker. He was a Class of '59 graduate of the former Wilbur H. Lynch High School. He served with the U.S. Marine Corps upon graduating from high school. He was married on September 16, 1967 at St. Stanislaus Church to the former Mary Ann Rzesos. Joe worked several years as an air traffic controller at Albany International Airport. He was also a letter carrier for the U. S. Postal Service at the Heritage Station Office, retiring November 1, 2002. Joe was predeceased by his half- brothers Leo Kibort (2000) and John Baker (1960).

The family would like to give special thanks to Pat & Mike, Linda & Jonesie, Linda & Lew, Rose & Ed, Janet and the C-2 staff at The Glendale Nursing Home as well as Hospice of Schenectady for their dedication and support.

Survivors include his wife Mary Ann (Mimi) Baker, daughters Debi Baker of Port Charlotte, FL, Karen Baker of Schenectady, NY and son Joseph P. Baker and his wife Natasha of Morrison, CO, his sister Eleanor Muller of Quincy, IL, his nephew John Mero of Quincy, IL, niece Dr. Kelly Francis of Huntington Beach, CA, and 3 nieces Linda Laird, Nancy Harvey & Donna Magnanti, all of New England. Joe's greatest joy was the pleasure he received from being around his family & friends.

Relatives and friends are cordially invited to attend. Calling hours will be at the Glenville Funeral Home, 9 Glenridge Rd. Glenville Tuesday from 6-8PM.
