Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Robert Vann Baker was born May 17, 1956 in Decatur, Alabama to the late Vivian Morgan Tompkins and Robert Vaugh Baker. Robert was a military brat and was active in Military Brat Chat, a group that discussed growing up in a military home. He always had an appreciation for Art and Design, which led to him receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts from Auburn University. He was known as a beautiful artist and enjoyed working in the art and design industry. He owned and operated two companies, Design First and Elegant Book Designs, for over thirty years. When he was not working, he could often be found in his woodworking shop, where he created beautiful furniture and custom cabinets, until his health would not allow.
