Tony retired from Meridian Health Care in 2015. He was the go to guy for IT repair at Meridian. He enjoyed IT repair so much, he started his own business called Sunset Computers Services. He helped several businesses and churches in the area, including Bethel Lutheran Church in Saint Clair Shores. He had a great curiosity for how all things work, tinkering and dissecting everything. When computers were first being produced, Tony had to have one. And he did, it was the size of the kitchen refrigerator.
His curiosity didn't stop with electronics, it reached above the clouds to the stars. He loved the outer space and was a member of the Warren Astronomical Society. He had a fascination with the stars and planets but also the science fiction of outer space. He was a Star Wars and Star Trek fan.
Tony loved old cars, trains, and people. He has taken several trips to Greenville Village and Henry Ford Museum. He was a member of the Pontiac Ferro Club and Hazel Park Amateur Radio club. In the clubs he was able to meet people that had the same curiosity as he did.
He collected thousands of books and magazines and loved to read. He entered writing contest all over the country and had 3 articles published in national magazines. If you ever stopped at his house, he may have bragged about it or left the article out in plan sight.
Tony was married on May 18, 1974 to Nancy Darlene Schlack, on paper. The anniversary date the two celebrate is actually April 9, 1967. Because Tony and Nancy met when they were around 17 years old. April 9, 1967 was the date that their hearts became one and their commitment to one another began, til death do us part.
Tony is the beloved husband of Nancy Bauman for well over 44 years; loving father of Danny Bauman, Jennifer Bauman, Shaun Bauman, and the late Anthony; and cherished Papa of Kendall Bauman. Tony loved when Kendall would come over and when she left, he would start to miss her before she even reached the car in the driveway.
