Obituary

It is with broken hearts that the family of James Michael Baldwin announces his passing on September 16, 2018, at the age of 65 years. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 38 years, Cindy, and their children Kellie and Connor. Mike will also be lovingly remembered by his mother, Norine, sisters Karen Crouch, Kathleen Trantham (Payton), Midge Beard (Neal), brothers Kevin, and Matt (Brenda), mother-in-law JoAnn Johnson, sisters-in-law Sue Saft and Patty Johnson, brother-in-law Mike Johnson (Christa), and father-in-law A.S. Johnson. Finally, he will be sadly missed by their four spoiled cats: Scooter, Little Bit, Nami, and Sweet Pea. Mike was preceded in death by his father, R.N. Baldwin, sister Maureen Massie, and brother Shawn Baldwin.

Mike was born on December 19, 1952, and grew up in Corpus Christi. He enjoyed many summers surfing at the beach with his brothers and friends. He grew up in a large and loving family, and enjoyed spending time with them. He graduated from King High School in Corpus Christi, and attended Del Mar College there. He later attended U.T. Austin for a short time. He and Cindy were married on May 31, 1980. With a huge heart, he adored his two children when they entered his life. They could put a smile on his face in an instant; they were his joy. He was a skilled cabinet maker and carpenter, and enjoyed using his hands to build many beautiful pieces of furniture for his family and loved ones. Beloved husband, father, son, brother, you will be missed.

A memorial service will be held at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, 3125 North Lamar Blvd., Austin, Texas 78705, on Saturday, October 6th, 1:00-3:00 pm.
