Maxie "Harold" Baker

August 1, 1963 — May 29, 2024

Maxie Harold Baker, 60, of Wildorado, Texas passed away on May 29, 2024. 

Harold was born in Amarillo, Texas on August 1, 1963, to Judith Ann (Meadows) and Malcolm Maxie Baker. He was raised in Wellington, Texas and was a 1981 graduate of Hedley High School.

He met the love of his life and best friend Pamela Martin in 1987 and were married on July 1, 1989, and there began a lifetime of love and adventures. They were blessed with two sons, Ryan in 1995 and Calan in 1999. Harold took great pride in teaching them everything he knew including how to be honorable men. He was a man of many trades and a wealth of knowledge. From hunting, fishing, cooking, home improvement, and even music he knew it all. He took delight in attempting to teach his daughter-in-law how to make gravy numerous times. 

Harold retired from the State of Texas after 25 years and focused on his home inspection business until 2021 when he decided to go after his childhood wish of truck driving for a short time. He purchased a semi-truck and started MB Transport and was leased on to Branum Trucking at the time of his passing. He was accompanied on the road by his best friend Jake, who was with him until the very end. Harold loved fishing with his family, and they raised their boys trout fishing in Colorado but his greatest fishing memory was fishing for salmon in the Kenai River, Alaska. He was a devoted father and husband and loved spending time with his family, always saying to his boys “being rich doesn’t have anything to do with money, we’re rich because we all have each other”. Harold took great pride in becoming “Dude” to his grandchildren and teaching them how to be onery.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his very special grandmother Bessie Meadows.

He is survived by his wife Pam of Wildorado, Ryan and wife McKenna of Amarillo, Calan and girlfriend Miranda of Amarillo, and his grandsons Mason Baker and Chet Byrd of Amarillo. Sister Brenda Lewis of Little Rock, Mindy Gibbs of Childress. His “sister” and “brother” Sandra and Jack McKnight of Howardwick, his best friend and truck dog Jake, and the best friend he ever had Russell Vaughn along with an abundance of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews. 

Memorial services will be held at Branum Trucking 5857 E. Hollywood Road on Saturday, June 15, 2024, at 10:30 am. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors.
