Wolfred Bauer

February 19, 1929 ~ April 3, 2022 (age 93)


Wolfred “Shady” Bauer was born in Bellingham, WA on February 19, 1929 to Wolffred and Mabel Bauer.   He died peacefully at his home in Tacoma, WA on April 3, 2022.  

 His wife of 63 years, Marlene, preceded him in 2016.  Shady is survived by siblings Alma (Andy) Anderson, Ellen Atkinson and Bill (Janie) Bauer; daughters Laurie Bauer and Sheri (David) Teesdale; grandsons Alexander (Hannah) Teesdale and Patrick Teesdale; and great-grandchildren Eliana, Ryan, Elowyn and one to come.  

We will miss our conversations on current events, his thoughtful perspective on life, having macchiatos at Valhalla Coffee, the way he always remembered everyone’s names forever, his love of learning, and his phenomenal pork loin roast that somehow can’t be duplicated.
