Robert Nelson Baldwin

Birth Date: Jun. 1st, 1954
Date Passed: May. 2nd, 2017


Robert Nelson (Bob) Baldwin age 62, died peacefully in his sleep Tuesday night, May 2, 2017. He was a fish farmer north of Big Rapids and the Green Charter Township Supervisor for the past several years. As the youngest child of Maree and Nelson Baldwin, he grew up a dairy farmer near Croswell, Michigan. He gained a degree in aquaculture because he didn't like milking cows and moved to Big Rapids to find land with spring waters for his fish farm, but it wasn't until he became a Township Supervisor that he found his favorite job, a perfect mixture of business and people. He truly enjoyed the people of his township. He is survived by a sister and brother-in-law, Carolyn and Sandy Shaw; a local extended family of Kyle and Tina Randall and their children Erin, Ember and Erica; remembered fondly by many local friends. We will miss him. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service at a later date. Go to: or Facebook @ Throop Funeral Home of Ravenna Inc. to sign the online guestbook.
