Thomas Albert Bausch Notice
Bausch, Thomas Albert Of Wauwatosa, Born to Eternal Life on July 17, 2013, at the age of 75. For 50 years, the beloved husband to the love of his life, Bernadine. Loving father of John, Mary (Joe) Jurken, Ann (Tom) Chapman, Chris (Paula), Elizabeth (Ed) O'Reilly, Martha (Bill) McConaghy, Peter (Kerry) and Thomas (Molly). Treasured grandfather of seventeen grandchildren. Throughout his life, Tom was committed to family, faith, and community. He was filled with joy when surrounded by his wife, his children, their spouses, and his grandchildren, all of whom have been immeasurably impacted in a positive way by his support, guidance and sense of humor. He was greatly invested in the development and education of his children and grandchildren. He took great pride in all their accomplishments. Tom's commitment to his Catholic faith inspired and motivated him, both personally and professionally. A graduate of John Carroll University (B.S. 1960), and Indiana University (Ph.D. 1969), he had a distinguished career centered on working with Jesuit Universities and the Jesuit Order throughout the world. Tom was an avid proponent of Catholic social teaching in business and management. He held positions at John Carroll University and Bradley University prior to becoming Dean of the Business School at Marquette University from 1978 to 1993. Tom continued to teach at Marquette until 2010. He had a global commitment to the Jesuit mission, working with universities and organizations throughout Latin America, Africa, Europe, and Asia. Among many other leadership positions that he held, Tom served as President of the American Assembly of Collegiate Schools of Business, Co-founder and Executive Director of the International Association of Jesuit Business Schools, President of the World Union of Jesuit Alumni, and National President of Christian Life Community. Though Tom took great joy in working overseas and addressing global issues, he was also committed to improving his local community. Tom was a lector and long-time member of the parish council at St. Bernard. He served on the boards of several Milwaukee area companies and civic organizations including the Next Door Foundation, the Rotary Club of Milwaukee, the Heartland Value Fund, and Blue Cross Blue Shield United of Wisconsin. A lover of the arts, Tom also greatly enjoyed the local symphony, opera, and ballet. He enjoyed gourmet cooking with his club for over 30 years. Visitation will be held at the Funeral Home on Sunday, July 21, 2013, from 3PM to 6PM. Additional visitation will be held at St. Bernard of Clairvaux Parish (7474 Harwood Ave., Wauwatosa) on Monday, July 22, from 10 AM until the Mass of Christian Burial at 11AM, followed by committal services at Holy Cross Cemetery. Milwaukee. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the Thomas Bausch Scholarship Fund (for St. Augustine University of Tanzania, to benefit the underprivileged) or the Jesuit Seminary Guild are appreciated in Tom's memory.
