Emblem

Bob was born and raised in Cleveland, OH, to Eleanor and Rock Bauer Sr. (deceased). He is survived by his loving wife, Ann Bauer, and his four children: Joe Bauer, Sharon Cameron (Chase), Julie Spahr (Nate), and Brandy Bauer. Bob was a loving grandfather to Kailey and Payton Cameron, with one grandchild on the way, Jackie. He was a great-grandfather to Ellie and Chase Cameron. He is also survived by his siblings: Wayne Sr. (Fern), John Sr., Larry Sr. (Cindy), DeeDee Hensley (Tom), Darla Rutowski (Lester), Rock Bauer (Debbi), and Janet Bauer. He was a brother-in-law to Joe Butvin (Cona) and Mike Butvin (Paris). Bob was an honorary family member to Kim Johnson, whom his kids affectionately called Auntie Kim. He was an uncle, great-uncle, and great-great-uncle to many. He is also survived by his adored cats, Scout and Angelo.

Bob was a devoted husband and father who did everything to provide for his family. Though raised in Cleveland, he also lived in Indianapolis, IN, and later settled in Delaware, OH. Bob was an avid Elvis fan and a huge fan of the movie Forrest Gump. He was a veteran of the Army, having served during the Vietnam War and was stationed in Germany. He was always proud of his military service. Bob was known for his love of nature, his protective nature, and his humor. He was quick with a joke and famous for his impersonations of Rocky Balboa, Forrest Gump, The Terminator, and countless others. He was the "magic man" to all the kids growing up, famously making quarters appear from behind their ears.

He was strong in his Catholic faith and often read passages during Sunday Mass at St. Mary's Church in Delaware, OH. Through his faith and inherent nature, he was always quick to offer advice and assistance, whether it be a shoulder to lean on or help with fixing a car. In his younger days, he and his brothers operated Bauer Automotive on Cleveland's west side.

Bob will be deeply missed by anyone fortunate enough to know him.
