In Loving Memory of

Dean Glen Bauer

1971 – 2017


Dean Glen Bauer, age 45 years of Roblin, Manitoba, passed away on Monday, April 3, 2017 at the Brandon Regional Health Centre in Brandon, Manitoba.

Dean was born on April 4, 1971 at Roblin, Manitoba.  He was the only son of Glen and Dianne (nee Pitz).  He grew up in the Roblin area and received his education there.  He later graduated from Goose Lake High School.

Growing up, Dean spent a lot of time with his grandparents, Nick and Annie Pitz.  After the sudden passing of his father Glen, Dean moved to the farm to help take care of the cattle.

For many years, Dean worked with his mother and his uncle, Jack Onofrechuk raising cattle.  He did not stray too far from the farm.  He worked for a while as a mechanic and then at a gas bar, but his heart was always in his farm near the river.  He tried a few “off farm” ventures- he was a partner in the Calder Hotel for a brief time, as well as producing a Rock concert in the valley.  He also became a certified timothy feed grower and grew different grasses for the cattle, as well as raising chickens.

One of Dean’s most memorable times was when he borrowed his uncle Jack’s motorhome and took it to the Minnedosa Rock concert.  He knew someone who operated the festival and was able to park in the VIP area where he met many of the entertainers.

Dean enjoyed making many different types of meals and sausages as well as canning fish.  He enjoyed this pastime with his many friends.  He always had a bed and plenty of food for all of his friends.  They knew that he would give him the shirt off of his back.  He was always there to help any friend or family member, even when struggling with his illness.  Through his fight with illness, he always had faith.

Dean had a lot of respect for his uncles and aunts.  He never failed to call them “uncle” or “aunty”.  He tried to give the impression that he was a rough and tough guy, but in reality he was as gentle and kind as a pussycat.

Dean’s Funeral Service was held on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 2:00 PM at the Roblin Evangelical Mission Church with Pastor Randy Moffit officiating.  The processional music was “When I Get Where I’m Going”.  His uncle, Jack Onfrechuk gave the eulogy.  The organist, Laurie Moffit and the soloist, Shanna Nemetchek led the congregational hymn, “Amazing Grace“.  Shanna Nemetchek sang a special music selection “One Day at a Time”.  The recessional music was “Go Rest High on that Mountain”.  Dean’s family requested that all in attendance consider themselves Honorary Casket Bearers.

The Casket Bearers, Clint Bauer, Richard Onofrechuk, Brian Markowsky, Steve Guercio, David Mench and Darren Lindsay carred to Dean to his final resting place next to his father Glen in Roblin District Cemetery.

Following the Interment Service, a reception for family and friends was held in the auditorium of Roblin Evangelical Mission Church.
