Giles Gordon Baum
1937 – 2021

On October 27, 1937, Floyd and Edith Baum were blessed with a beautiful baby boy named Giles Gordon Baum, a name he was proud of. Dad grew up in Provo, UT working with his dad and brothers, and going to school. He attended Provo High where he met the love of his life, Shirley Ann Van Cott. She was his everything from day one and he was hers. They eloped to Evanston, WY on June 29, 1955 and were sealed for eternity in the Manti Temple on May 4, 1956. They had one son and four daughters. They moved to Orem in 1958. He was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He held various jobs until he began working for Coca-Cola retiring after 36 years. Dad taught us to follow in our Saviors’ footsteps by his example; always welcoming others, extending the benefit of the doubt and giving Christ-like service at every opportunity. Dad was devastated when Mom passed away in 2017 and visited her grave daily until January 15, 2021 when he joined her in eternity. He will be missed tremendously until we meet again.

Giles is survived by his four daughters Ruth Ann Greaves, Linda Peay, Kathleen (Todd) Bendall, and Elizabeth (Jeremy) Myntti, daughter-in-law Sharlene Baum, 28 grandchildren, 38 great-grandchildren, his brother Farrell Baum, and sister Marsha Jenkins. He is preceded in death by his beloved wife, Shirley Ann, son, David, his parents, one grandchild, one great-grandchild, and three brothers.

Family and friends may visit Wednesday evening January 20, 2021 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 E 800 N, Orem. Private family services will be held the following day. A webcast of the funeral will be available on www.walkersanderson.com where you may also share memories and condolences.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you kindly donate to your local food bank or The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Humanitarian Aid Fund.

Dear Family,
How sad I was to hear this news. But on the other hand how happy. I know he was missing Shirley so much. I used to visit teach Shirley years and years ago. So I may have seen Giles at home a few times. But my fondest memories of him are when he stated working at Scera Park. I was the Librarian and he would occasionally come into the Library and we would have great visits. He was always happy, friendly and welcoming to all. It was fun to discuss things of interest, vacations, Yellowstone, Disneyland and life in general. When Shirley was sick near the end of her life I went to visit her a few times and enjoyed the visits with Giles, as Shirley wasn't actually able to visit too much. What a fine, loving and caring husband and friend. May you all enjoy your memories of him and look forward to seeing both of your parents again. As Shirley always said "He's a Keeper".
Love, Jennilyn and Keith Mauerman
