Matthew Baylor

October 29th, 1929 - October 17th, 2009


Obituary

Mr. Matthew Baylor was born on October 29, 1929 in Kemper County, MS to the late Walter and Luvenia Baylor.   He was the third child among seven siblings: O.C. Baylor, Eddie Baylor, Johnny Will Baylor, Frank Baylor, Robert Ed Baylor, and A.M. Baylor, who all preceded him in death.  Mr. Baylor attended Kemper County Schools until he left to reside in the home of his Uncle Buster Burton. While living with his uncle, he attended Whistleton High School, where he met Lorene Thomas.  They were united in marriage on November 21, 1953. Before completing high school, Mr. Baylor was drafted into the U.S. Army and deployed to San Francisco, California. While in California, he completed his GED.  He was later stationed in Alaska, serving in the Korean War.
                 After marriage, Mr. Baylor and his wife, Lorene, settled in Milwaukee, WI. In a few years, they moved to Chicago, IL, where they began their family: one son, Orlando, and a daughter, Cassandra.  In Chicago, Mr. Baylor accepted a position in the U.S. Postal Service as a Postal Mail Carrier. In 1968, Mr. Baylor moved his family back to Meridian, MS, becoming  the first black U.S. Postal Carrier in Meridian, MS.  Proud of this accomplishment, his wife kept his uniforms neatly and crisply pressed, while his son kept his shoes shined to a sparkle. Upon returning to his hometown, Mr. Baylor joined Newel Chapel C.M.E. He later became a member of the Baylor family church, Pilgrims' Rest Baptist Church in Porterville, MS. Active in civic and community organizations, Mr. Baylor was a member of the Masonic Lodge, and served as a union official with the U.S. Postal Service. Mr. Baylor worked for the U.S. Postal Service for more than 30 years, retiring after a successful career.
                 He and his wife had the true spirit of hospitality as friends and family would frequently visit their home for lively conversations or perhaps to share in one of Lorene's delicious, home cooked meals. Mr. Baylor was devoted to his family and had a sharp wit and a keen sense of humor. He lived a rich and full life before falling ill in recent months. He had many friends throughout the U.S., many of whom contacted him during the five months he spent in Stone Mountain, Georgia at the home of his son and devoted caregiver, Orlando, before the transition of his life to be with the Lord and his wife, Lorene.
                 Mr. Baylor departed this life on October 17, 2009.  His wife, Lorene had preceded him in death in 2003. He is survived by his son, Orlando (Attorney Gail) Baylor of Stone Mountain, GA; a daughter, Cassandra (Jesse) Williams of Lithonia, GA; three grandchildren, Je’shaun Martese (Yolanda) Williams, Cameron Matthew Williams; and Matthew Franklin Baylor; three great grandchildren, Brittney, Ahmaud and Leilani;  sisters-in-law, Mildred Anderson of Dekalb, MS; Pearl Baylor of Meridian, MS; Dr. Lamar Thomas of Glen Carbon, IL; Billy Thomas of Fischers, IN; Ray Thomas of St. Louis, MO; Betty Dunn and Sharon Thomas Davis of St. Louis, MO;  and a host of other relatives and friends.
                 Mr. Baylor had an unwavering commitment and loyalty to God, family, and friends. He will be sorely missed but we are comforted  in knowing that he is resting peacefully in that place of eternal rest until we meet again.

Obituary

Dear Family & Friends,
 
This letter is to let you know that I’ve moved. Early Sunday morning, July 12th, 2009, I received a call from God, the Chief Architect, who informed me that my new home was ready and I had to move in immediately. I have been sending up my timber, packing up and getting ready to go. There were some finishing touches in some of the timber that only Chief Carpenter, Jesus Christ, could do. For some were a little too broad, too thick, or not enough and still having to prepare my family for my move without them.
Well, now that my new home is finished, it’s a beautiful sight to behold. It is located in an exclusive estate behind a beautiful pearly gate just off a serene, celestial shore. Of course, the streets are paved with gold and everyday is like Sunday. I’ve lived a few places before my new home but none could compare. There is peace, joy, and happiness here. There’s no more pain, no more fear, there is only sweet serenity everywhere. I can go on and on about my new home but I have to go get fitted for my new wings, you see. And I am meeting my husband for dinner.
 
Let me give you my new address:
Irene Baylor Gardner
7 Heavens Lane
God’s Town, Heaven 2009
 
I don’t have a phone yet, but call King Jesus. If you don’t have his number, He’s listed in the Good Book on every page.
 
Until we meet again,
Watch & Pray!
Mother, Mom, Momma, Mama, Big Momma

From Kelly Colanto on November 16th, 2010
I worked with Henry at the Suffolk County Sheriff's Department.  I still cant beleive that this has happened to such a bright, vibrant young man.  Henry brought so much to our program and he will always be remembered. 

Henry was such a good friend to me when my brother passed away and I will forver remember what a beautiful smile and heart he had.  I feel blessed to have the time I did with him and wil miss him every day.  Heaven has a real angel now. I love you Henry!
 
From Ann Baylor-Mathis on November 17th, 2010
I met Henry at the 2010 Family Reunion for the first time.  I have known his Mom, aunts and uncles a life time.  I'm glad I got to know Henry even if it was only for a short time.

To Lucille and the rest of the family, I am truly sorry for your lost, but God picked a beautiful (handsome) flower for his garden. One by one we will all meet there.

With love and sympathy!

Ann
