David Baumann, MD Bonneau, SC - David Paul Baumann, beloved physician, has died at the age of 96. He was a child of Nellie and Emil Baumann and married to his wife Sarah Jane for 69 years. He was the kind of doctor who made house calls with his children and gratefully accepted homegrown vegetables, fish or venison as payment for an office visit. He spent untold hours sitting by the bedsides of very sick patients in CCU. Nurses in every hospital he served brought him baklava, cookies and brownies and his fellow doctors called on him to help solve the most formidable problems a patient had. He was friends with his equals and mentor to the students he taught in physiology, anatomy and chemistry. He loved being outdoors as much as he loved medicine. His fly fishing was a beautiful thing to watch, and he was a lifelong hunter. He spent his spare time traveling the west, where he had an Idaho cabin and small cattle ranch that he worked. He reveled in the unending spaces, mountains and rivers there. He is remembered for his endless kindness and quiet charity to patients and family alike, and for his constant positive attitude which impacted everyone around him. His smile could make the most dire situation less frightening. Pop was a man who believed in miracles and truly loved mending the sick. His father and brother served God as ministers, Pop served Him as a healer of bodies. He also taught Sunday School and served as a Deacon in several Presbyterian churches. He is a cherished father, grandfather and great-grandfather. The careful counsel, loving compassion and good humor he surrounded us with is acutely missed. Memorials may be made to First Presbyterian Church, 410 W. Main Street, Moncks Corner, SC 29461 or the National Parks Conservation Association, 777 6th Street NW Suite 700 Washington DC 20001-3723. Services will be decided at a future date. Visit our guestbook at www.legacy.com/obituaries/ charleston
