Dr. David Bauman
June 21, 1940 – August 11, 2022

Dr. David Lee Bauman, 82, husband of Barbara Henderson Bauman, passed away on Thursday, August 11, 2022.

Born in St. Louis, MO, he was a son of the late Roman F. Bauman and Dorothea Ann Fisher Bauman.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his son, Patrick Fitzgerald (Janie), granddaughter, Shaylen Fitzgerald, brothers, Robert Bauman of CO, Tim Bauman of CO & Tom Bauman of AL. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews and his beloved pet cat, Silvie.

After serving four years in the US Air Force, David pursued a career in education. Northwest Missouri State College was where he received not only his Bachelor of Science in Education but also his Masters. At 45, he still wasn’t satisfied and attended The University of Alabama where he received his Doctorate.

A member of the Elks Club as well as Vets Helping Vets, he had a servant’s heart. He was also a member of St. Johns United Methodist Church. His favorite pastime was golf and his second was aggravating his close friend and neighbor, Eddie Vickery, who is a diehard Clemson fan. The neighborhood will always remember that Alabama flag flying in the Bauman’s yard.

The family will host a memorial service at 1:00pm on Friday, August 26, 2022, at MJ “Dolly” Cooper Veterans Cemetery, 140 Inway Drive, Anderson, SC 29621.
