Mitchell “Mitch” Stegan Baker

Mitchell “Mitch” Stegan Baker was born May 4, 1992 in Burley, Idaho to Henry Arland Baker and Diana Kay Bingham Baker as the last of 13 children, “The Baker’s Dozen.” He passed away peacefully on Oct 14, 2021 at 29 years young after a 10 month struggle with ALS.

He was surrounded by a whirlwind of activity as he grew up in a huge family and helping with the family businesses.  He loved working outdoors or in the shop and doing anything mechanical.  He loved farm work and John Deere anything.  

He was so relieved to graduate from Burley High School in 2012 and loved serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the Arizona Tempe Mission 2012-2014.

Mitch and Becca Ann Fife were married on Oct 4, 2014.

Mitch was very patriotic and hard working. He worked for 4 years at the ethanol plant.  But he really enjoyed working for Motion Towing and being able to help others. He was very caring and accepting of everyone he met.  He so cherished his daughters and family.

He is survived by his wife, Becca, 3 daughters: Daelyn (7), Cattrina (6) and Kaleesa (5), parents: Henry and Diana Baker, 10 siblings: David (Mindy) Baker, Kimberli (Damon) Vitangeli, Stephen (Mandy) Baker, Melanie (Max) Clements, Loralee (Todd) Salisbury, Legrand (Diana) Baker, Tiffany (Jason) Moses, Annmarie (Tim) John, (Arland’s wife, Cherece, remarried to Casey Hall), Scott (Heather) Baker, Marty (Rachael) Baker and 100 nieces and nephews.

Preceded in death by his brother and sister: Arland Kay Baker (30) and Stephanie Baker (3), and his grandparents:  Wallace and Lois Baker and Heber and Loise Bingham.

We will miss his positive attitude, sweet smile, heartfelt hugs and his willingness to help others.  Mitch had many reasons in his life to be bitter but he chose to be better.

A viewing was held on Thursday, Oct 21, 2021 at Rasmussen-Wilson Funeral Home, and on Friday, Oct 22, 2021 followed by Funeral Services officiated by Bishop Stephen H. Baker of the Pella 1st ward at the Pella Chapel, 400 S 100 W, Burley.

Mitch was buried in the Pella Cemetery.
