Otto Bauman

Otto Bauman, age 84, of Rhinelander, died July 16, 2018, at his home, surrounded by his loving family. He was born Feb. 6, 1934 in Joliet, Illinois to Otto and Marion (Clug) Bauman.

Otto moved with his family to Rhinelander as a young child. He attended schools in Rhinelander and then at the age of 15 he went to work for Coca Cola. He was with them for his entire working career, retiring from Coke in 1996 after 47 years of service.

In his spare time he enjoyed doing almost the same things he did at work. He was a master of all trades and enjoyed fixing anything. He was a lifetime mechanic and enjoyed every minute of it. The only thing that came before those interests, were his family.

After throwing snowballs at her in grade school he eventually won the affection of Gloria Spengler. They were married on Oct. 31, 1953 in Rhinelander and they enjoyed almost 65 years of marriage.

Otto is survived by his wife Gloria, his three daughters Rose (Tom) Yulga, Judy (Ted) Fisher and Anne (Bruce) Cline, his grandchildren Keith and Kevin (Jessi) Yulga, Stephanie (Christopher) Harrel, Heather (James) Dickinson, Jason Fisher, Amanda (Dan) Chojnacki and Zachary Cline; his great-grandchildren, Trevor, Laurelle, Andrew, Freddy, Archer, Ellie, Ayden and Cooper; his sister Marion Moore; brothers Leonard Bauman and Roy (Doris) Bauman, his best friend Arthur Frisque, other family and many friends. He was preceded in death by his sisters Florence and Alice and a brother Earl.

Interment will follow at a later date at the Northland Memorial Park Cemetery. Chaplain John Uhlarik will officiate.
