Born in Carrollton on Feb. 14, 1960, he was the son of the late J. Fred and Carol (Kirbach) Bauer. He married the former April Schofield on Nov. 7, 1981 and they enjoyed 39 years together. His wife survives as does their son and daughter-in-law: Tyler Ryan and Kasey Bauer of Greenfield, a grandson and “Grandpa’s Best Buddy” : Clayton Bauer.

He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents: Helen and Henry Kirbach, Dora and J.P. Bauer, his father-in-law: Delmer Schofield and an aunt: Bertha Kirbach.
Dan was a loving husband, father and proud grandpa. Dan was a lifelong farmer. He loved going on riding trips with his family and could be found anywhere in his Polaris razor. He loved spending time with Clayton, who was his entire world. He has loved the last couple years being able to help Tyler with cattle and any other chores he could help out with. Dan never knew a stranger and enjoyed visiting with anyone he ran into. He will be sadly missed.
