Bauman, Paul:

Passed away after a short illness on August 18, 2020 at his home at the age of 82.

Beloved husband to Marlene for 57 years after meeting on a blind date

Dear Pa to Shawn (Gary) Doucette, Sue-Ann Dietrich (David Tapp) Cindy (Glenn) Wilkins.

Cherished Grandpa and Papa to Rachel and Brandon Dietrich, Ryan, McKayla and Cameron Wilkins.

Loving brother to the late Abbie, Adelle (the late Joe) Fay, Harold (Grace), Douglas (Barbara), Jack (Darlene), Donna Palubeski and Herb (Mary).

Paul was a kind and generous man. He loved his family more than anything. He was a social butterfly and was everybody's Pa and Grandpa. He was very forgiving and always gave another chance. He knew people wherever he went and was known for showing up with his gig van and a joke. He had many favourite phrases he loved to say like getting "his people on it". Paul worked as a certified welder and sheet metal mechanic at Dahmer Steel, Nelco and Sutherland Schultz and in the 80's opened Paul Bauman Maintenance. Some of his favourite times were spent at the cottage, barbecuing, going to Tim Hortons or just going to the shop and supervising. He never really retired. He also loved his antique cars and tractors. He will be deeply missed by many.

Paul's family will receive relatives and friends from 5:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 20, 2020 at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener. A memorial service will be held in the chapel of the funeral home on Saturday August 22, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. Interment to follow at Parklawn Cemetery in Cambridge.

We were greatly saddened by the news of Paul’s passing as we will dearly miss his friendly welcome and genuine interest in us as Wasaga Beach cottage neighbours. Our sons will remain grateful to Paul for sharing his enthusiastic love of old cars and his knowledge of these special vehicles; it has since sparked their own interest in vintage cars! Paul’s kindness and friendly wave to us with be dearly missed. To Marlene, the family that gave Paul so much pride, and to the many lives Paul influenced so positively, we extend sincere condolences and pray for strength and comfort.
