PALMER TOWNSHIP William Lewis "Bill" Gaumer, 69, of Palmer Twp., Pa., reached the autumn of his life on September 8, 2021. He passed away in his home as were his wishes. Born on August 11, 1952, in Emmaus, Pa., he was the son of the late Lewis and Betty Buchanan Gaumer. Bill was the baker and manager of Strausser Haus of Breads for 17 years. He later was employed at Victaulic where he retired from. He was fortunate to enjoy hunting, fishing, gardening and his special cooking of "Papa G's Good Eats" his whole life, prior to tropping through serious illness. Bill was so very grateful for his neighbors, a family member and lifelong friends whom untiredly helped support him. He always said, "They really take care of me". Bill is survived by his wife of 44 years, Peggy Strausser Gaumer, and his daughter, Melissa Margaret Gaumer, of Warwick, RI, who was the joy of his everyday life. He was a wonderful, supportive father from the day she was born until death he parted. He is also survived by his brothers-in-law, Jeffrey and Gary Strausser; sister-in-law, Melanie Young and her husband, Kyle; mother-in-law, Sandra Strausser; daughter-in-law, Jenna Gaumer; two cousins, nieces and nephews.
