3 Tributes for “Harold Clarence Bauer

    He was one of the greatest card players out there!!! Always willing to play a game of cribbage. He had a special heart for kids especially my daughter. I am greatly going to miss him, and him telling us how to do something.

    I grew up next to Mr. Bauer and I thank him for the all the games of cribbage, chess, jarts, croquet and even plain old tag. Will never forget the high toss snowball distraction to then get another in the chest as I gawked at the first.

    RIP “HC”
