Tad Baldwin Obituary


A celebration of the life of Tad Baldwin (52), will be held Wednesday, August 5, 2020. Those who really

knew Tad, respect that he took life cues from no one. Tad lived his life…. doing what he wanted, which

was usually being stubborn and raising hell most of the time. However, if you know Tad, you also know

the things he loved most in life were his girlfriend Nicky and her son Preston, his Harley-calling it their

“wind therapy”, his mom and dad, and his life-time friend Pony. Of course, we cannot forget his special

uniqueness in loving and bonding with dogs.

Tad was born March 19 th , 1968, in Troy, to Ted and Jean Baldwin. He is known as saying he was a

graduate of and teacher for “the school of hard knocks” and that “pain made him stronger every day”.

He will be remembered for the numerous selfies he posted and for his sometimes questionable “FB”

posts that often-times had to be deleted. Although no buildings were named after him and no

monuments erected in his honor, he DID have the chance to know and love uncountable friends and

family members. Much more than most of us ever really experience.

Tad was preceded in death by his mom, Jean Baldwin and survived by his dad, Ted Baldwin (Muriel

Oswald- One of his favorites); girlfriend Nicky Gervais and her son Preston; Brothers: Ted Baldwin and

Todd Baldwin; Sisters: Deb Reilly (Jeff) and Patty Dobkins (Kurt); numerous nieces and nephews; and

many, many friends who accepted Tad for Tad.

Tad would want you to celebrate his life in your own way, most appropriately by raising a glass of your

favorite drink, in his memory. Most likely, he would want you all to stop by and re-tell the stories he can

no longer tell. As the Celebration will most likely contain the Adult material, that Tad loved and was

famous for, we would recommend that no children under the age 18 attend (Just saying).
