Retired Woodway Mayor Donald J Baker died Thursday at age 79. He was surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Memorial services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday at First Baptist Woodway.
The family will receive guests immediately following the memorial service at the Pavilion at the Carleen Bright Arboretum.
Baker was elected to the Woodway City Council in 1991, and subsequently elected mayor in 1994.
When he retired as mayor after 23 years, he became the longest serving mayor in Woodway’s history.
In 2013, the City of Woodway honored Mayor Baker for his service and dedication by naming the council chambers the “Donald J. Baker Council Chambers.”
