Allen J. Bauman
Allen J. Bauman, 89, of Fond du Lac, passed away on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at the Hospice Home of Hope. Allen was born on April 8, 1932 in Dundee, a son of the late William and Hermina Bauman (nee Plautz). On January 28, 1956, he married Lorraine Wendlandt at St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. Allen worked as a farmhand for various famers, was a cab driver in Fond du Lac, and eventually began Bauman Dairy which faithfully served the Campbellsport and surrounding vicinities for 38 years, making many friends along the way. He also worked at Tom’s Millwork and Bauman’s Apartment LLC. Faith was very important to Allen. He was a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church and was a longtime member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Campbellsport. Allen was on the St. John’s Cemetery Board and the Winnebago Lutheran Academy Board. He enjoyed fishing, woodworking, and collecting beer cans and milk cases.
