Earl Glen Baham

Earl Glen Baham, 77, of Charleston, SC, passed into the arms of his Lord and Savior on April 11, 2024 at Roper Hospital, surrounded by his family.  He was born September 2, 1946 in McComb, Mississippi to the late Addie Lee Hutson Haley and his biological father, the late Earl Glen Baham, Sr.  When his father died, his mother and step-father, the late Robert “Bob” Haley, made sure he had a strong family foundation.  All of his life he was close to the Baham, Haley and Hutson families.  

Earl is survived by his cherished wife of fifty-two years, Susan Egger Baham.  He was a loving father to Kristin Lee Baham Dounian (John), Kelly Ann Baham Lally and Mary Katherine “Katie” Baham Gainey.  After raising three girls, he then relished his role as a proud and supportive grandfather to Robert, David and Daniel Dounian.  Earl is also survived by his sister, Judith “Judy” Baham Waid (Don), as well as loving in-laws, nephews and a niece.  

Earl was a graduate of Natchez-Adams High School, in Natchez, Mississippi.  He graduated with a degree in Landscape Architecture from Mississippi State University (Go Bulldogs!).  He pursued a successful career with the Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC Southern Division).  He enjoyed working with colleagues and traveling throughout assigned Naval districts, ending his career as Director of Land Management. Upon his retirement in 2001, he was awarded the Order of the Silver Crescent for his community service in the state of South Carolina. Earl was also an Emeritus Landscape Architect in the state of South Carolina.

In his free time, Earl was an avid sportsman and outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, fishing and land conservation. Most important to him was being a loving and supportive father to his daughters, following them in their various interests and activities. In recent years, he took great pleasure in watching his grandsons playing football and pursuing many other sports.  He was known to give advice personally and often to each grandson.

Earl was a faithful and long-time member of Ashley River Baptist Church. He was an ordained Deacon, served and provided leadership on many committees, and relished his time with the Senior Men’s Sunday School class.  In addition, Earl was a member of the Gideons International, having held various leadership roles in the Charleston West Camp. His faith was strong and abiding, even in the midst of obstacles and challenges to his health in the last three years.

A Celebration of Life will be held in Ashley River Baptist Church on Sunday, April 21, 2024 at 2:00 PM. A reception with the family will immediately follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials to the Faith Forward Restoration Campaign at Ashley River Baptist Church, 1101 Savannah Hwy, Charleston, SC 29407 or to the Gideons International, P. O. Box 31193, Charleston, SC 29417-1193 or (www.gideons.org/donate).

The family wishes to thank Earl’s supportive network at Charleston Oncology. We are most appreciative of James Orcutt, M.D., Nicholas Schmidt, M.D. and Eliza Hough, PA-C for their diligence in directing his care, as well as the compassionate and caring staff of the Infusion Center.
