Mr. Bauer was employed with Chrysler Corporation for many years and, at the time of his retirement over 35 years ago, he was the plant manager for the Eldon Axle Plant. Following his retirement, he moved to Port Sanilac, MI and spent his winters in Florida, first in Venice with Marilyn and then in Lake Wales with Genee. This past winter, Mr. Bauer spent his time in Zephyrhills, FL, with his son, Eddie, which he immensely enjoyed, and he made many new friends while there. Mr. Bauer had many, many friends both here in Michigan and in Florida. Mr. Bauer enjoyed boating and fishing, as well as bowling, playing cards and shooting pool. He was also an avid golfer – playing golf on his 94th birthday in Zephyrhills with his son, Eddie, and granddaughter, Jennifer – he shot a 101! He golfed right up until he became ill. He was the secretary for his golf league, the Duffers, a position he thought about passing on to someone younger, but the “guys” wouldn’t let him.
