School 29


May 10, 1963 ~ May 10, 2021 (age 58)



 Thomas Allen Baker was embraced in the arms of Jesus on May 10th, 2021. He was a loving father and devoted husband. He was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Rhonda Greene, his father, William Edward Baker, and his brother, Edward Baker. He is survived by his wife of 34 years, Yvonne Baker, his daughters Erica Overbay (Jack), and Rebekah Bailey (Barry); his grandchildren Simeon Evans, Brinley Evans, Nora Overbay, and Abigail Marie Bailey; his brothers Randy Baker (Sandra) and Tim Baker, his sisters Suzette Secrist (Bill) and Laura Martindale (Sam), his in-laws, and a host of nieces and nephews.

Tom was a teacher at Bell County High School and taught with the Bell County School System for 28 years, where he was beloved by his students. He was the academic team coach for many years, as well as the Bell County Lady Cats Pitching Coach and Assistant Coach from 2000 - 2004. He was once named Teacher of the Year.  With a true heart for teaching, Tom believed that every child had the ability to learn and that each child was capable of achieving great things. He always believed in his students and pushed them to always believe in themselves. Tom believed that humans are inherently good, and he continuously strived to see the best in people, and the best in life. He passed on these values to his children and always taught them, above all, to love. Tom’s love for his family, friends, and students is his greatest legacy.
