Born at Osgoode Station, Ontario on 30 November 1883, son of carpenter Samuel Baldry and Sarah Ellen York, he came to Winnipeg in 1906. He worked in the building trade, eventually being President of the Baldry Engineering and Construction Company. On 16 June 1909, he married Beatrice Helena Christina Simpson (1881-1967) at Winnipeg and they had two children: George Simpson Baldry (1913-?) and Ruth Elizabeth Baldry (1917-?). He was a member of Young United Church, Masons (Prince Rupert Lodge), and St. Boniface Kiwanis Club (President). He died suddenly at St. Norbert on 17 October 1959 and was buried in the Brookside Cemetery.
