Obituary for Kimbel Anthony Baker

Surrounded by his loving family, the angels came to accompany Kim Anthony Baker home to the Lord on February 21, 2021. Kim was born in Havre, Montana, on September 10, 1935, to Wilfred and Fern (Marion) Baker. He enjoyed an adventurous childhood in Reed Point exploring the Yellowstone River with his brother, Jim. After serving for two years in the U.S. Army, he went on to graduate from Montana State University with a biology degree.

Kim married Sharon Drain on June 22, 1961, and with her by his side embarked upon a twenty-nine year career as a junior high science teacher at Roundup High School. He impacted countless students who can attest to “Mr. Baker Stories,” including science experiments of counting dandelions on the high school football field, “I will see you at 3:33,” and using a bunsen burner to heat up his daily lunch of chili. Kim was a generous man with a unique sense of humor and a hearty laugh who always enjoyed visiting with former students.

Kim and Sharon raised three children, Denise, Michelle, and Mark, and instilled in them the importance of education and a strong work ethic. His English and French heritage contributed to his inner strength. A master gardener, Kim was well known for his corn, potatoes, and cucumbers, and would begin browsing seed catalogs each winter in preparation for the coming spring. Kim loved the outdoors and frequently floated the Yellowstone and Big Horn rivers. After he retired from teaching, he remained active with various jobs.

Kim is survived by Sharon, his loving wife of 59 years; his three children, Denise Wynia (Kevin) of Billings; Michelle Shaughnessey (John) of Missoula; and Mark of Billings; five grandchildren, John Michael Clayton (Chelsey), Brittany Olind (Tyler), Peter and Jack Shaughnessey, and Kolten Wynia; three great-grandchildren, Aubrey, Arianna, and Abigail Olind; and his brother Jim (Dolores) of Salmon, Idaho.

Kim was an honorable, unpretentious man whose life exemplified integrity, commitment to family, service to others, and an enduring love of the land. We will miss him fiercely!

A funeral mass will be held at Saint Benedict’s Catholic Church in Roundup on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 11:00 a.m.
