Joseph Charles Baumann, age 81, of Erie passed away Friday, September 4, 2020. Born in Erie on January 11, 1939 he was a son of the late George E. and Louise M. (Spiesman) Baumann.

Joe B was born and raised in Erie, Pa., a Cathedral Prep Graduate class of 1956. Joe joined the Navy after high school and after his 4-year tour, came home to work at Baumann Brothers Carpetowne with his late Father George and three

late brothers Tommy, Bruce and Jimmy. He founded Joe B's Carpet Connection in 1992 and semi-retired in 2015, anyone that knew Joe B knew he would never fully retire because he loved what he did and loved the interaction with his community in Erie and the surrounding areas.

Joe B loved life, God, family and friends. He was the type of human being that you didn't meet very often. Joe & Jackie welcomed into their home many world exchange students as their own children. He could be found every Sunday at St. Luke's Church for 10:30 mass. Joe loved his family and friends like no other, he was genuine and had an insatiable zest for life, Joe didn't have a slow down or stop button. He was one of the biggest Nascar fans and loved everything racing, in his younger years he was known for racing on the track and on State Street. Joe B was inducted into the Darlington Raceway Hall of Fame in September of 2017 and attended over a 1000 Nascar races stemming back to 1958 at Daytona.

Joe started the Patricia Baumann Hopsecger Scholarship Fund at Mercyhurst University in 1994, that awarded scholarships to students to continue their education. He was a long-standing member of Lawrence Park Golf Club, CYS Club and St. Boniface Ushers Club.

Joe B was an amazing husband, father and friend, to know him was to love him and he will be sadly missed by all.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his wife of 53 years, Jacklyn E. (Schall) Baumann in 2015; two daughters, Sherrie Lynn and Debra Ann Baumann; three brothers, Thomas R. Baumann, James E. Baumann; and Bruce E. Baumann; and a sister, Patricia L. Hopsecger.

To the Baumann family, Mary and I are so sorry for your loss, we have been friends with Joe for many years and will miss his happy outlook at life. We enjoyed many visits with Joe and Jackie , especially the volley ball games every Wednesday nite. Because of our age and the virus we might not make it to the church services, but we will pray for Joe.

Dear Cale and family,

No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. But take comfort in knowing that he is now resting in the arms of our Lord. I know how much you cherished your father. I’m truly saddened to learn of his passing.
