Granville Lee Baber Obituary

Granville Lee Baber, age 86 of Arcadia passed away quietly at his home with family by his side on Monday, May 6, 2024. 

Granville was born in Mancelona, MI on August 11, 1937, to the late Carl & Dorothy (Robbins) Baber.

As a child, Granville grew up in the Michigan lumber camps where his father worked.  Later the family would move to Noblesville, IN where he attended Noblesville School and met the love of his life Carol Jean Baker, whom he married on June 7, 1957. Granville and Carol shared 67 years of marriage.

Granville worked at Noblesville Casting Foundry for 44 years, where he worked rebuilding furnaces.  In his free time, he loved to fish and camp.  Granville took many fishing and camping trips with family and friends over the years, including a 3-week trip out west with Kenny & Liz Whisman and Nolan & Wanda Purkey.  Granville's greatest joy was his family. He loved to spend time with his children and grandchildren and cherished those moments.
