|Bauer, Edmund Rudolf
Birth: 1940-08-03 in Bavaria
|Edmund Bauer, 70, passed away at his residence on February 8, 2011 in Lusby, Maryland, surrounded by his family. He was born on August 3, 1940 in war-torn Bavaria and lost his father just before the end of World War II. Following his fatherís death, Edís mother brought him to the U.S. He was only eight years old.|
Eddie met Virginia Brant, an army brat who had just arrived from Taiwan and was living at Fort Meade, during their senior year at Arundel High School in Gambrills, Maryland. He began courting her.
The pair graduated in June 1959, and Eddie left for boot camp in San Diego, California. His career in the Navy began with a stint on a destroyer. He attended Submarine School in Groton, Connecticut, and was then assigned to the USS Aspro, a WWII submarine, followed by a transfer to the newer USS Volador. He returned to Maryland in July of 1962 to marry his high school sweetheart and took her back to California where their first child was born.
Following his discharge from the Navy, Ed worked in Maryland and then went to Winkfield, England where he tracked satellites for Bendix Field Engineering and NASA. He then spent three years in Goldstone, California and then on to Blossom Point, Maryland. Ed was involved in the first moon shot.
In 1972, with four children and a wife, Ed moved to the Chesapeake Ranch Club and began work at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant. One more son was born to Ed and Virginia at Calvert Memorial Hospital. After retirement, Ed was periodically called back for short-term projects at the power plant.
Ed became a ham radio operator while he was still in junior high school and his call sign is W3ERB. In 1985, Ed bought the sailboat of his dreams and the couple spent many wonderful days on the Chesapeake Bay. Edís other hobbies included readingóespecially books on History, the Civil War and WWII, and puttering around his shed. Most of all, Ed loved spending time with his little family, 20 strong, at the frequent birthdays, holidays, boating trips and more.
Ed received the Sacrament of Reconciliation and returned to the Eucharist in March of 2010 at Our Lady Star of the Sea, where his family has worshipped since 1974.
Ed was surrounded by all of his children, grandchildren and his wife as he died, and he was blessed with the graces of the sacrament of the sick and dying. His wonderful sense of humor and generosity towards friends and family will be dearly missed. He loved to make the family laugh and they would all be poised to hear his latest humorous thought whenever they saw his grin and the twinkle in his eye
He was preceded in death by his mother, Paulina, (Marie) Rose and is survived by his wife, Virginia; his children and their spouses, Mark and Karen, Edgar and Susan, Cookie and Andy, Edie and Tom, Chris and Linda; and six grandchildren, Samantha, Joseph, Eddie, John Paul, Andrew, Aubrey, great-grandchild Noah, and Edís stepfather Lewis Rose.
The family will receive friends at noon on Friday, February 11, at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Church, 90 Alexander Lane, Solomons, Maryland, where Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 1:00 PM with Father David Wells officiating, with reception following in the Providence Room.
