Wilbert G. Bauman


Bauman, Wilbert G. On Tues Nov 18 our beloved father/ husband/grandpa went home to be with his Heavenly Father at the age of 83. He joins his son, Timothy (1953-1972) in heaven to await the rest of his loved ones on earth. He is survived by his wife, Arlene of 62 years; daughters, Rebecca Ersfeld (Keith) and Cynthia Jedlicki (Rudy); and son, Corey Bauman (Gina); 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grand- children that treasured him and always will. Bert was a WWII veteran serving as a Navy Sea Bee; a graduate of the Minneapolis Art Institute launching a career in commercial art. Feeling God's call to the ministry, he put his art career aside and founded/ pastored Compassion Christian Ctr and Bible School and Redeeming Love Christian Ctr. At the age of 73 he earned his Doctorate in Philosophy from the Minnesota Graduate School of Theology. He used his many talents in music, speaking, and writings to glorify God and spread the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We know his life has blessed ours and many more. This precious man will surely be missed. Please join us for a memorial service on Saturday, November 22 at 1:00 pm at First Memorial Funeral Chapel, 7835 Brooklyn Blvd, Brooklyn Park MN. Condolences can also be sent to Dr. Bert's website at www.Redeeming-Love.org.

I will always be grateful to and thankful for Bert. He taught me about the LOVE of God.

Arlene, you and your family have my sympathy for the loss of Bert. He will be missed by all who knew him, but will be alive in our hearts and memories for the rest of our time on this earth. He brought me to the baptism of the Holy Spirit and holds a very special place in my heart. I just enjoy thinking of him now, visiting with all our loved ones who went to heaven before him. They are all praising God and living in the Glory of Heaven! That is such a happy thought. God bless you and...

We are so sorry to learn of the loss of your dear husband/father/grandfather. We feel a special connection with all of you. I had good times learning to paint from him years ago in the art classes held in your home. We will keep you all in our prayers.

Sorry for family's loss, We share it with you. Just wanted you to know that Bert touched others.

My prayers go out to Bert's family. His ministry has touched many generations of my family. May God bless you, Arlene.

Knowing Bert and hearing his messages about God and His Love changed my life and the lives of my family. God Bless
