Frank James Bauer, 77
Frank James Bauer passed away peacefully Sunday, July 14, at his Lewiston Orchards home after a two-year battle with cancer.
Frank was born Aug. 16, 1935, in Omaha, NE., to Joseph Vaclav Bauer and Helen Dorothy (Merritt) Bauer. He was the youngest of five children, and spent his early years on the family farm just outside of town. His mother died in 1937, and the family eventually moved into Omaha, where Frank graduated from St. Bernard Parochial School and attended Benson High School.
He was a child of the Depression, and did everything he could to help the U.S. military effort during World War II - from picking milkweed for use in Navy lifejackets and collecting every piece of scrap metal he could find, to trying to track down escaped Japanese prisoners of war from a camp in Nebraska.
He worked for a spell in a traveling circus, and lied about his age to join the U.S. Air Force in 1952. He was a veteran of the Korean War, where he proudly served as a gunner on a B-26 in the 13th Bomb Squadron - The Devil's Own Grim Reapers.
He finished his high school education in Folsom, CA, in 1954, and briefly attended Long Beach State College. He eventually moved to Idaho and began working in the woods for Potlatch Forests Inc., where he developed a deep appreciation for the country surrounding the North Fork of the Clearwater River. He started working in the company's Lewiston paper mill in 1962, and retired in 2001 after a long career as a machine tender on Potlatch's 2L paper machine. He was a proud Potlatch employee, and his crew helped achieve industry records in paper production. He also was a dedicated member of the AFL-CIO, and a champion of workers' rights.
Frank married Linda Lou Andrews on July 31, 1971. The couple welcomed their first son, Douglas, in 1973. A second son, William, came along in 1976. There were numerous dogs, cats, cows, horses, sheep, chickens, turkeys and other animals - including some peacocks - on the family's East Orchards farm, and Frank was always proud of the tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis that came from his garden.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping with his sons, and watching them play sports throughout their high school years. He also enjoyed a fresh pack of smokes, a tall glass of Burgundy, cold beer, guns that shot straight, pickups, gravel roads and AM radio stations. He was a devout reader of the Lewiston Tribune, and always kept up on current events. He also enjoyed gambling, and claimed to have an ability to "read" slot machines. His luck often indicated otherwise.
He was preceded in death by his parents; father- and mother-in-law Leo and Hilma Andrews; sisters, Elaine, Doris and Margaret; brothers-in-laws, Tom and Tim Andrews; and several beloved nieces and nephews. He is survived by his wife, Linda; brother, Edward of La Mirada, CA; son, Doug and wife Jennifer of Lewiston; son, Bill of Port St. Lucie, FL.; and grandchildren, Maddix, Bridger and Piper Lou Bauer of Lewiston.
A funeral service is scheduled for 2 p.m. Saturday at St. James Catholic Church in Lewiston. His ashes will be interred at Mountain View Cemetery following the service.
