Robert "Bob" W. Baumann

April 10, 1943 ~ July 11, 2021 (age 78)


Robert W. “Bob” Baumann, 78, passed away Sunday July 11, 2021 at Aspirus Wausau Hospital. 

Bob was born in Wausau on April 10, 1943 to Erwin “Putch” and Betty (Burns) Baumann. He was a 1961 graduate of Wausau Senior High School, and attended UWSP and Wausau Technical Institute.

On August 15, 1964 he married Mary Jane Londerville at St. James Catholic Church, Wausau.

A proud lifelong resident of the Village of Brokaw, Bob was a machine-tender at Wausau Papers Brokaw Division retiring after 41 years of service, and also served as Village Treasurer for 40 years. 

A devoted husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and uncle, Bob most enjoyed camping at Crystal/Muskellunge Campground in Sayner, and spending time at the family cabin in Arbor Vitae or traveling to Door County, Myrtle Beach, and Florida.

He is survived by his loving wife, Mary, children: Rebecca Powell of Madison and Robert Jr. of Hudson, grandchildren: Ashley (Tim) Steigerwaldt, Macy (Dan) Goetz, Mattie, Logan and Kailee Baumann, Jalen and Maurissa Powell, and great-grandchildren Lily Young and Landen Goetz, as well as brothers in law Donald (Verneen) and Alan (Roberta) Londerville, sister in law Lois (Charles) Garcia, and many loved nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, father and mother in law Henry and Mattie Londerville, and brother in law Lloyd Londerville.

Bob will be greatly missed by many…he would talk to anyone he met, nobody was a stranger.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
