Randy Michael Baker, affectionately known as Rooster, passed away on March 20, 2024, at the age of 64. Randy was born on June 14, 1959, in Walterboro, SC. He was a devoted father, lovingly remembered by his daughters, Mercedez Smith (Kevin Smith) of Killeen, Texas, and Kortney Young (Matthew Young) of Anderson, SC.

Randy had a deep love for everything South Carolina Gamecocks, and for baseball. He spent countless hours umpiring games from T-ball to the college level. Randy found great joy in helping players learn and develop their skills on the field. His passion for baseball was evident to all who knew him.

An enthusiastic dog lover, Randy cherished his granddogs, Momo and Zuko, treating them as beloved members of the family. He had a natural talent for connecting with people and never met a stranger.
