Kent Raymond Baker
December 02, 1985 ‒ June 02, 2021
Kent Raymond Baker, 35 of Marion, passed away peacefully on June 2, 2021 to a tough long battle against cancer.
Kent graduated from the Marion Harding High School in 2004. After high school he completed training at the Marion Police Academy where he went on to become a Sheriff’s Deputy at the Marion County Sheriff’s Department where he was dedicated to protecting his county.
In 2012 he married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life, Jeanie Dice, together they had a true fairytale love story. In December of 2013 Jeanie birthed their 1st child, Hunter Raymond Baker. This led to a career change to allow Kent to better his family’s lives. He went on to work for Columbia Gas for the next 7 years. In 2017 Kent and Jeanie joyfully welcomed their daughter Hinzley Ann Baker into the world. Kent was a devoted and loving husband, father and son. His life revolved solely on providing for his wife and their children and giving them the world. In his free time he enjoyed spending it with his family. If he couldn’t do it with his family together he didn’t want to do it at all. He was the true definition of a family man. Kent will always be remembered for his endless and devoted love to his family and friends and for his compassion to help and guide others.
