Arthur E. Bauer, devoted husband of Carol M. Bauer for 64 years, peacefully passed away at home surrounded by family on January 1, 2015. Born in Hartford on April 6, 1926, Arthur grew up in West Hartford and graduated from Hall High School in 1944. He entered the U.S. Army Air Corps during WWII and after the war attended Trinity College. Later, he worked in the aerospace industry for Pratt and Whitney Aircraft, Fafnir Bearing, and ultimately the Torrington Company, from which he retired in 1988. A longtime resident of Unionville, and then Burlington, he was an avid fan of both the New York Yankees and UCONN girl's basketball. Arthur enjoyed summers at Highland Lake in Winsted, motor home traveling across the United States in retirement, and camping in the Adirondack Mountains. But most of all he enjoyed the company of family - for which his concern and love was an inspiration to all. Besides wife Carol, survivors include brother Robert E. Bauer of Petersburg, VA; son Jeffrey W. Bauer of Winsted, daughters Jaimee B. Johnson and husband Warner of Farmington, and Melinda (Lindy) B. Shafer and husband Gordon of Torrington; former son-in-law Richard P. Genetti of Burlington; grandchildren Erik and wife Michelle, Britta Feliciano and husband Don, Reed, and Keith Johnson; Melissa Preece and husband Ed, Megan, and Derek Genetti; great-grandchildren Andrew, Dylan, and Jillian Feliciano; Flynn and Bodie Preece; Zoe Johnson; Ethan Genetti;and many nieces and nephews. Arthur was predeceased by parents Dr. Joseph C. Bauer, DDS, and Mary E. Bauer Tucker; and brother Joseph C. Bauer, Jr. A memorial service will be held January 17 at 1 P.M. at Burlington Congregational Church. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Foothills VNA or Foothills Hospice, 32 Union Street, Winsted, CT 06098; or the Burlington Congregational Church.
