Glenn E. Bauer was born May 30, 1939 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Raised as an only child, Glenn developed a knack for tinkering with anything mechanical. That tinkering later developed into a mastered skill after attending General Motors Institute of Technology for two years. Although mechanically inclined, he had a personality that made it seem as nobody was a stranger to him. Glenn's great demeanor and love of meeting new people helped him to become the successful businessman that he became. In his career he would become the district manager of Detroit Steel, which would relocate him here to Memphis, and later once it closed Glenn went on to become the district manager of Southern Tube and Metal until its closing. Glenn then decided he would become a salesman for Allen Automotive Diagnostic equipment. After gaining more affluence in the automotive industry and wanting to enjoy the semi- retired life Glenn made the decision to become a self- employed automotive inspector for several prestigious companies. Glenn not only loved dealing with cars as a profession but also as a hobby.If anyone were to have automotive trouble Glenn was the first one to be called, and never backed down from a challenge. He also collected many late models of cars and trucks, whether it was just pictures of them or actual models. In fact his favorite past time was watching NASCAR with his friends and family. However, Glenn's love was not only for cars, he owned a motorcycle he frequently enjoyed riding. He often went on trips with friends who also rode motorcycles, often to go camping and barbecuing. Glenn was also a very family- oriented man that thought only of other and lastly of himself. He worked hard to provide for his family a good life and instilled in them all of his wisdom. Glenn passed away March 2, 2013. He leaves behind his wife, Becky Bauer, three daughters: Linda Bauer, Karen Tripp, and Tracey May, four grandchildren: Logan Little, Matthew Little, Jessica Bryan, and Katjana Gries, and great- grandchild Kylie Bryan. Glenn will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.
