Peter "Pete" Paul Pauer lost his battle to squamous cell carcinoma on May 16, 2020, at the age of 48. Pete was a dedicated father, brother and friend. Pete owned and operated Beachfront Bar in Rhinelander for over 10 years. Most recently Pete was employed as an accountant at KerberRose in Antigo.
Pete was known by many and loved by all. More than anything, Pete loved spending time with his daughter, Sammy. Pete also loved togetherness, and finding opportunities to bring together his friends and family. Pete also had a love for sand volleyball and had a stellar team of friends he played with often.
Pete is survived by his 17- year-old daughter, Samantha Grace Wolf (Kris Wolf); mother and stepfather, Sue Kirsch and Skip Wright; siblings Edward (Jean) Pauer, Wanda Pauer, Jamie (Ross) Armstrong, Jodi (Jeff) Schiek, Justin Wright and Josh Wright; his godson and nephew Maxwell Pauer; and nieces and nephews Ariel Pauer, John Robert and Jack Schiek and Owen and Riley Armstrong. Pete was preceded in death by his father, Bruce Pauer.
A scholarship fund has been established for his daughter at Associated Bank in Rhinelander. Please stop in or call 715-362-6900 to donate to the Samantha Wolf Scholarship Fund.
A memorial service will be scheduled for this summer and details will be shared on Pete's Facebook page.
