Robert E. Bauman, age 81, was reunited with his lovely wife, Rita, on May 27th. He was a loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He had a smile that could warm your
heart and he truly will be missed by many.
He was born in 1938 and lived in Sterling, Ohio. He was a proud Navy veteran, serving on the USS Hornet. He always enjoyed telling stories of his Navy days. He moved his family to Wadsworth in 1974 and was a member of Sacred Heart Church and Kiwanis Club. He was an amazing guitarist and his love of music was something that began as a child and continued throughout his whole life and was passed on to his children as well. He retired
from Akron Standard where he was an electrician.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Edna Bauman; sister, Mary; and his wife, Rita (Drexler) Bauman.
He is survived by his siblings, Roberta, Ron(Ilene), and Marti; his children, Dianna, Debbie(Bob)
and Neil(Christina); his grandchildren, Rick (Jaclyn), Rob, Maggie, Blaine, Tracy (Chris), Victoria, Jennifer, Joseph, and Arianna; and his great grandsons, Oliver and David.

Reserve National Cemetery at 12:30.
