Dale Winfield Bauers
December 25, 1943 – November 17, 2021
Dale Bauers, age 77, went home to be with Jesus on Wednesday, November 17, 202. He is survived by his beloved wife Marilyn, his daughters Dawn (Stephen), and Denyse (Michael), his grandchildren, Rachael and Tyler. Dale, originally from Philadelphia, moved to Palm Harbor, FL, then to Las Vegas, NV. He spent most of his career as owner of Rainbow Stained Glass in Bristol, PA, a business he started with his wife that flourished for over 30 years. He shared his love of that craft with anyone who stopped into the store. His craftsmanship can be seen in houses all over the area. He especially enjoyed teaching others the skill he was so passionate about. His lifelong love of fishing started at age 7. He was a skilled freshwater fisherman and seamlessly transferred that skill to salt water when he moved to Florida. He loved spending time with his family, shooting his guns in the desert, and playing with his beloved cats, Ralph, Shadow, and most recently, Mo. He enjoyed working on projects at home and for friends and family. Please leave your favorite memory of Dale so that we may use it in our memory book.

Dear Mrs. Bauer,
My name is Andrea and I have the privilege of working with your daughter Dawn.
My heart aches for you and your daughters. I vaguely remember meeting Mr. Bauers at Calvary during one of my oldest daughter drama performances. Tyler was playing in the band for the show. When the show was over I saw Dawn and she introduced me to the both of you. I can tell what wonderful, loving, and devoted parents you both are because Dawn is an angel. Children do not turn out wonderful without being raised in a home filled with love and determination. May God give each of you the strength, energy, and power to know all your sorrows will be swept away.
Praying for comfort,
Colleen and Tom Klingelhoefer

I remember Dale as not being one to complain. Most especially, I remember one time when he was performing necessary maintenance/cleaning (commode) on their camper trailer. He did this with a smile on his face and quite cheerfully! I remember to this day his servant's heart and willingness to take care of what had to be done for the three beloved women in his life, my dear friend Marilyn and their two daughters. I can only imagine the emptiness in your hearts with losing Dale...but only for a time. until the Lord brings about a wonderful reunion in Heaven. I also look forward to seeing my brother in Christ again one day. With prayers for healing and strength, and comfort for your broken hearts as you are carried gently forward in the days to come in our Lord's arms,,,with love from Barbara

Dale was always quick with a laugh and had fun stories to share. He was also happy to share his skills and knowledge with any who asked. 2 things he greatly helped me with were assembling, from a pile of parts, the tub of my '72 K/5Blazer, and his skills and expertise with glass was invaluable as he shared his time, talent, and professional grade tools to walk me through installation of the glass backsplash in my remodeled kitchen. His spirit and generosity is, and will continue to be, missed.

Dale was the father of my beautiful and dear friend, Dawn. Mr. and Mrs. Bauers were always so gracious to me when visiting their homes in Pennsylvania and Florida. As young women, we spent many hours enjoying time with friends swimming in their pool and playing volleyball in their yard in Levittown, where Dawn also celebrated her wedding and baby showers. Mr. Bauers was always the quintessential "host with the most" who took pride in handiwork and creativity around his homes, particularly his landscaping. And, I will never forget the lovely day spent on his boat in Florida when he gave me an exclusive tour of the waters he learned to navigate so well after settling there several years ago. I am most grateful to Mr. Bauers for being a cherished father to my cherished friend.

Our most enduring memory of Dale is his eagerness to help us fish with Tyler whenever we’d visit Florida. He’d always take us out on the water, help us get set up, and teach us the best practices for catching fish. No matter the conditions, he was always patient, kind and helpful, and we’ll always think of him whenever we fish as a group.

What I remember most about Dale was simply how much he enjoyed life. Whatever he was interested in, he went all out. You could feel his excitement about things and his knowledge was always impressive. He was also very generous. I have a lot of memories spending summer days hanging out at their pool. Dale would grill up a feast usually including the catch of the day or for the little ones, he would have his famous fish nuggets. Good times.
My deepest sympathies to Marilyn, Dawn, Denise and family. Praying you feel God’s comfort and peace carrying you thru this difficult time.

The memory that I remember about Dale my uncle so very well is ... Him coming home to my grandparents home after a fishing trip. I got to see him prepare a fish he caught. I was about 5, maybe 6, years old. He filleted that fish like any professional fisherman. His fishing was his Joy sharing his catch meant the world to him. This memory I will always keep close to my heart. 🙏💖🙏

I will always be grateful for the time Dale spent with Tyler and his friends on his boat. Every summer we would come to visit in Florida and he would share his love of fishing with the boys. After a long day of fishing he would clean the fish and we would have a great feast to enjoy. He was a wonderful dad and a terrific grandfather!
