Philip James Bauer

February 3, 1962 - March 18, 2016

Our beloved Son, Brother and Uncle, Philip Bauer passed peacefully on Friday, March 18th.  He was the youngest of five children born to Herb and Cathy Bauer.
Philip attended St Vincent’s Elementary, Waldo Middle School, and graduated from Mc Nary High School in 1980.   He retired in 2013 from the State of Oregon Department of Transportation after 30 years of service.  He enjoyed his close friends, car races, the Ducks and solitude.
He leaves his loving parents:  Herb and Cathy Bauer; his three brothers:  Steve (Judi), Mark (JoAnn) & Daniel; and his sister Susie (Dennis) Dachtler.  In addition to numerous nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Philip’s life will be held at Queen of Peace Catholic Parish on Saturday, April 9th at 11:00 am.  In lieu of flowers, the family requests a donation to the Union Gospel Mission or the charity of your choice. 
Philip, we love you . . . and wish you peace and comfort in God’s loving care.
