Robert was born on June 16, 1965 in Biloxi, MS. He was the son of the late Richard L. Baker and Addie Foster Baker. A compassionate person with a big heart, Robert sought to help people in their times of need. Robert had a gift for learning. He would get hooked on a subject and would learn as much as he possibly could about that certain subject; planes, history, wars, photography, and bicycles. He enjoyed studying about past wars but his true passion were bicycles. Robert owned and managed a bicycle shop in Rock Hill, SC, College Cycles Bicycle Shop, on Oakland Ave for over 30 years. Robert had a loving heart and dedicated his life to helping others.

Robert is survived by his pet dachshund and closest companion, Isis Rose; his brother Richard Baker (Marilene), and his sisters, Beverly Padgett (Charles), and Ann Christenbury (Ben). He was also survived by his nieces: Lauren B. Linder, Gabrielle Baker, Michelle Baker, and Amber Padgett; and his nephews Bryan Mobley, Matthew Inman and great nephew, Briggs Inman.
