Michael Baker

Owner

Michael moved out to sunny Tucson Arizona in 2005 to escape the cold and look for a better opportunity. Shortly after moving to Arizona he was hired on as a Pool cleaner with a local company named Mike’s Pool Service and Repair. They taught him the in’s and out’s of Pool Service and Repair. A few years after he hired on with this locally grown company they sold off most of the business. During that process they were able to help him with his business start up. Michael found early on that relationships are the key to success. Honest and integrity really do matter in the growth of the company. Michael is also the Co-owner of Omni Pool Builders and Design, and Owner of Life Saver Pool Fence of Tucson. Michael has a beautiful wife and 3 awesome kids. His wife has supported him and this business from the beginning. Family is the most important thing to him in this life and they will always come first.

Martin was born to Martin “Marty” and Mary Ann Huerta on June 28, 1988.
The first week of his life was spent in the hospital and his mother did not get
to hold or see him during that week.
When his mother, Mary Ann, finally got to see and hold him in her arms,
she saw he had red hair.
It was at that moment that Mary Ann thought to herself “He is my Wuerito”
and the nickname, “Wuero,” as many of his family and friends know him,
stuck.
Martin was a happy child with a charismatic personality.
Being the firstborn child, Martin was a natural born leader and succeeded in
everything he set his heart on.
As a big brother he took his siblings under his wing and helped guide them
through life.
Martin was a four-time All Star baseball player; he graduated from Amphi
High School in 2006 and attended the University of Arizona.
As a member of the Amphi High School football team, he was also an All
State lineman.
Martin had a larger than life personality and lit up every room he entered.
He was a happy, friendly, person who always saw the positive side of any
situation.
