Dennis Robert Bauer was born on July 30, 1949 in Marshfield, to Robert and Elaine (nee White) Bauer. He was raised and received his education in Loyal, attending St. Anthony’s Catholic School and graduating from Loyal High School in 1968.

After retiring from farming, he worked at Lynn Dairy, Fiskars of Spencer, and Nelson Filter, Neillsville. In 2005, they moved back to Spencer and have resided there until the present time. He was an avid gardener and loved woodworking, but his pride and joy were his children, with a special passion for spoiling his grandchildren.
