CARL RICHARD BAUER
MAY 17, 1939 – OCTOBER 27, 2020
A MAN WHO TRULY LOVED GOD AND HIS FELLOW MAN
HUSBAND, FATHER, GRANDFATHER, GREAT-GRANDFATHER, BROTHER & FRIEND
God came for Carl (my Pops) in the early morning hours of October 27, 2020 to join his beloved Catharina in heaven. He always said “I went to South Africa a pagan and came back to America a Christian.”
Thank you for being a wonderful father, for giving us so may reasons to smile……Thanks for our on-the go fun times together and times we just talk and relax for a while… Thank you for the memories we’ll keep with us always, for being a part of our happiest days. Thanks for inspiring our hearts with your dreams and making us feel proud in your own special way… Thanks for your hugs, and your help, and your humor, for letting us know you appreciate us. Thank you for showing us, all through the years how much you loved us.
Ich liebe dich mein Papa and Oupa”
