David Bauer

David J. Bauer, 73, of Belleville, Ill., born February 22, 1942, in Belleville, Ill., died Sunday, Dec. 20, 2015, at his home after a 20-year battle with cancer.

Mr. Bauer worked as shop manager for Rite Electric for 43 years. He knew all the tricks of his trade. He had been a member of the U.S. Army Reserves. Dave was a man of many interests: fishing, weightlifting, playing pool, playing cards, horseshoes, and softball, and listening to music. Being part of a large family, Dave was loved by many. His sense of humor and devotion to others gave him a large circle of friends. In the eyes of his grandchildren and many others, he was a superman.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard and Mildred, nee Wellen, Bauer; and a brother, Ronald E. Bauer.

Surviving are his wife of 52 years, Carol J., nee Wittlich, Bauer, whom he married May 18, 1963; a daughter and two sons, Julie (John) Chaney of Highlands Ranch, Colo., Todd Bauer of Yarrow Point, Wash., and Craig (Krista) Bauer of Maryville, Ill.; two grandchildren, Jonteray Cain and Charlie Bauer; two brothers, William (Mary) Bauer of St. Libory, Ill., and Daniel (Deborah) Bauer of Venedy, Ill.; a sister, Sandra (Dan) Vertanen of Hayward, Wis.; a sister-in-law, Bonnie Bauer of Belleville, Ill.; and nieces and nephews.

Dave's family would like to extend immeasurable thanks to Dr. Popovic and the staff at Illinois Oncology Center.
