Gary Lee Bauder was born Wednesday, September 6, 1944 in Scotland, South Dakota to Richard and Martha (Orth) Bauder. He was baptized and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Scotland. He graduated from Scotland High School in 1962. After high school, Gary worked a few years at Utica Lumber, the Lesterville Farmer’s Union Co-op, and the Scotland Creamery. He began farming southeast of Scotland, near Lesterville, in 1971. Gary was united in marriage to Janet McCord on March 25, 1972 at Bethany Lutheran Church in Woonsocket. They moved to Scotland in 1998. Gary continued to help on the farm, and also did garden tilling and moved snow for various people in the area. Gary was a lifelong member of Zion Lutheran Church. He was an active member of the parish, singing in the choir for over 40 years and serving as Treasurer for seven years. He also sang in the Community Choir for several years. Gary was recently recognized for having served on the Board of Directors for the Tabor Lumber Co-op for 30 years, for which he was Secretary for 25 of those years. Gary enjoyed collecting coins, caps, and toy tractors. His pastimes included bowling and playing cards, but his special joy in life was playing with his grandkids. Gary died on Monday, February 27, 2012 at Avera Sacred Heart Hospital in Yankton at the age of 67 years, 6 months and 21 days.
Gary will be remembered always by his wife of nearly 40 years, Janet, of Scotland; two children and four grandchildren: his son, Patrick (Cheryl) Bauder of Scotland and their daughters Ashley and Brittney; his daughter, Michelle (Tom) Hlavac of Scotland and their children James and Kristina; and a sister, Ruthann (Bob) Wrobel of Ankeny, Iowa.
In addition to his parents, Richard and Martha Bauder, Gary was preceded in death by a brother in infancy.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials to the Scotland and Lesterville Volunteer Fire Departments.
