Tyrelle Ramon Baker was born on, September 24, 1981, in Kansas City, MO to, Veverly Baker and Richard Stiles. He departed from this life on, October 1, 2021, at his home.
He was preceded in death by, his father, Richard Stiles; maternal grandmother, Annie B. Stevenson; aunt, Joyce Leach; uncles Ronald Stevenson, and Donald Stevenson.
Tyrelle was educated in the Kansas City Missouri school system. He graduated from Ruskin High School in 2000. After graduation, Tyrelle attended Penn Valley Community College. Tyrelle attempted to work several jobs, but because of his health he was allowed to get disability.
He accepted Christ as his personal savior in 2009 at Greater Pentecostal Temple, under the leadership of Bishop Marvin Donaldson. Tyrelle was an unknown poet in his own right. He loved helping his brother and cousin write music. He enjoyed his family.
My brother, Ronald, had him at a young age and I remember him giving Tyrelle the nickname, “Seldom”, which meant, seldom heard, and seldom seen. Tyrelle had trials throughout his young life, but he was on his way. It was a journey. I can hear him say, “I love you auntie to the moon and back.” As I’m sitting here writing these few words about Tyrelle, I can feel his spirit saying, “Auntie, that’s enough about me. Tell my brothers I love them, and I miss them so much!” Tell my mom it’s all good now.” And for me he would say, “To the moon auntie…NO COMING BACK!” Please tell my cousins I’ll see them at the gates.”
He leaves to cherish his memories, his mother, Veverly Baker; daughters, Tazzy Baker, and Jocelyn Henderson brothers, Charles Kalone Baker (Dionna), John Stanley Wayne, Jr., Ryan Lawrence Baker, and Brandon Baker, of the city; aunts, Ora Lee Stevenson, Ernestine Boswell, Valerie Baker, and Flora Stevenson; uncle, Anthony Baker; nephews, Kaluan Tylee Baker, Ryan Baker, Jr., and Kristian Baker; nieces, Nevaeh Baker, and Ariana Baker; as well as a host of great aunts, uncles, cousins, and an endless number of friends that truly loved him.
