December 1, 1952 - May 8, 2016
John Peter Bauer, 63, entered this world on December 1, 1952 in Manitowoc, WI., beloved son of Donald and Arline (Backus) Bauer—he unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, May 8, 2016, due to natural causes in Green Bay. He attended Lincoln High School, where he conducted several chemistry experiments in and outside of the school. John always enjoyed a good adventure, from participating in Polar Bear plunges in Alaska to exploring old Mayan ruins—he was also one of the best cooks known to man. He frequently cooked for special events and family gatherings. His love for seafood was second to none, which obviously meant he enjoyed fishing (freshness matters!). John was kind beyond belief, always volunteering to help others, whether that was doing their laundry or mowing their lawns. He was an adventurer, conversationalist, comedian and storyteller. Do you buy this obituary? Because he would convince you to—he embodied the perfect salesman and could sell ice to an Eskimo. However, in his work he truly believed in helping people during a time of need, which he fulfilled through his jobs at PuroClean and R. Van Rite Construction & Restoration. But not all is lost—John’s legacy lives on through his 4 daughters Heather (Joshua) Ernst, Nicole (Aaron) Senn, Lani (Tim) Mannion and Megan Bauer; his 9 grandchildren Josiah, Asher, Kenan, Vashti, Aidan, Quinn, Soren, Emery and Brielle; his 2 sisters Chris Zinkel and Jeanne Kucera; and 3 brothers Tom, Jim and Dave Bauer—plus all family members’ significant others. Please come and celebrate John’s life with all his loved ones on Saturday, May 21, 2016, at Pfeffer Funeral Home from 11am-1pm—the service will start at 1pm and his son-in-law Joshua Ernst will officiate. In lieu of flowers, please consider the needs of the family when attending the service. Special thanks for John Hansen for his help during this difficult time.
