September 19, 1947 – October 27, 2018
In the early hours of Saturday, October 27, Karl passed away suddenly, yet peacefully in his home, finally released from the pain he endured for so many years. He leaves to mourn his beloved wife of 33 years, Irene Micak, his adored daughter Tammy Bauer and much loved grandpa, to her children Harold and Abbi Peterson .He also leaves his siblings Hans, Pepi and Greta Bauer, Mother in law Anne Micak, brothers in law, Michael (Kristy) and Peter Micak and John Lovasik and their families his nieces and nephews, Aunts cousins and many friends.
Karl was the ultimate “macho man” of the eighties. He would try anything, with scuba diving, Fishing and skiing being his favorite sports. He was a great dancer and a very sociable man, a gourmet cook, butcher and the maker of the best smoked salmon in Montreal.
The family would like to thank Dr. Steinmetz and the vascular team at the Royal Victoria hospital, the Lac St. Louis CLSC team of nurses who came to our home twice a day for the past month, and his dear friend Steve Arless, for their help and support in the months before his death.

Spending summers growing up on Isle Bizard with my brothers is one of the most cherished memories of my childhood and teenage years. Being neighbors with the Bauers was the bonus that made those years even more memorable. The seven of us made quite a team. From playing football and british bulldog on the lower lawn, to swimming and water skiing behind the boat with the "huge" 25 horsepower motor. Life was a dream. How could it not be? We were young and the world was ours to conquer. Karl, even then, was the adventurous one. He was young, reckless and always pushing his limits... always going for "gold". Time, as always, moves on. We have all grown, married, had children and grandchildren. Time has also had us all move on in different directions and as such we have lost touch except for the occasional snippet of news. This time the news was not welcome, the loss of Karl. For the Bauer's and Micak's you have lost a sibling, husband, father and grandfather. I hope your memories of him will comfort all of you. For us, myself and my brothers Lyon ("Nipper") and Neil, we have sadly lost a part of our childhood.
Irene, we go back over 40 years to the days at Rose Knitting. That was quite a time. I am happy for you that you found Karl and had a wonderful 30+ years together. I am so sorry that this was the way that we reconnected after so many years. May you find strength in your love and memories of your years together.
