Waymon Neal Baucom, 66, was born September 16, 1953 in Hickman, Kentucky to the union of Willie Leroy Baucom, Jr. and Annie M. Wilson Baucom Byrd. He passed away suddenly on May 2, 2020 in Toledo, OH. He accepted Christ at an early age and was currently a member of The Indiana Avenue Missionary Baptist Church where he drove the church van and served on the #1 Usher Board and the Men’s Usher Board.

Waymon moved to Toledo in October 1966 and attended Gunckel Elementary & Libbey High School. After graduating from high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force during the Vietnam War era. Waymon met Christina White who was visiting Toledo from Sidney for the summer. Later they united in Holy Matrimony on March 30, 1972.

After serving in the military, Waymon began working at American Can Company where he was a forklift driver and served as a union representative. He was also employed with the City of Toledo before being forced to retire early due to health issues.

Waymon loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and taking his mother to family reunions or visiting her siblings in various states. On every trip they would stop to visit Chris’ family. He was an avid Rhythm & Blues fan and also enjoyed fishing, hunting and riding motorcycles. Waymon was affectionately known as the family’s handyman, mechanic, and Uber driver before “ubering” was a paid job. He also had a deep passion for baseball. Waymon’s passion was so great that he played in the right field on the family’s softball team, The Stinging Bees. The team participated in the Toledo Division of Parks and Recreation Co-ed League.

He was preceded in death by his father, Willie Leroy Baucom, Jr.; brother, Dale Evans McCauley; baby daughter, Lucretia Baucom; sister-in-laws, Beverly Girten, Pamela White-Foy, Paulette White & brother-in-law, Jerome White.

Mr. Waymon Baucom leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife of forty-eight years, Christina White Baucom; son, Carlin Baucom; daughter, Carla Baucom, both of Toledo, OH; mother, Annie Byrd; six grandchildren, Acacia Baucom of Charlotte, NC; Ceaira Henderson-Baucom of Atlanta, GA; Camari (Jerri) Mays; Amari Mays, Marionna “Sally Ride” Mays & Mario “Charlie” Mays of Toledo, OH; two great-grandsons, Je’mari “Smokie” Mays and Je’mir Mays of Toledo, OH; sisters, Gloria (Tyrone) Sturdivant of Toledo, OH; Carolyn (Ivan) Hurey of Chicago, IL; sister-in-laws, Bertha Johnson & Barbara White of Sidney OH; Kathleen Brown of Holland, OH; brother-in-laws, Edgar (Carolyn) White, Jr. of Coshocton, OH, Rodney Franklin of Cincinnati, OH; aunts, Joann (Ernie) Pierce of Sandersville, GA; Lola Baucom of La Center, KY; Dorothy Baucom & Betty Baucom of Toledo, OH; Catherine Baucom of Holland, OH; aunts, Sammy Smith of Toledo, OH; Almeda Warren of Sidney, OH; MaeEtta Wilson of Brooklyn Center, MN; Annie Wilson of Chicago, IL; uncle, Jay White of Sidney, OH; great aunt, Evelyn Whitfield of Florissant, MO; special cousin, Patricia McCauley; special father figure Rev.

Waymon and his family were good neighbors for the many years we lived on Upton. Mike affectionately called him "Doc". In the Bible Jehovah God promises to end Death at Revelation 21:4 , and Lovingly promises a resurrection of are dead loved ones. Are Deepest Sympathy to the Family.
