Brent Lewis Bauer was born on October 8, 1947, to Raymond and Shirley Bauer in St. George, Utah. When Brent was a young boy his family moved to Susanville where he resided until his death on November 11, 2021.
On December 18, 1972, Brent married Judith Smedes. They would have celebrated 49 years of marriage this year. Brent was a jack-of-all-trades, a mountain man, a friend to everyone he met, and truly one of a kind. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding motorcycles, working on cars, and Black Powder Rendezvous. He possessed a wide range of knowledge, always had a story to tell, and could fix anything, especially if he had a tube of shoe goo. He loved to share his knowledge, skills, hobbies and stories with his grandkids. He also passed on his love for hunting, fishing, guns, cars, and motorcycles to many in his family.
Brent is survived by his wife Judi, his three kids Trent (Trisha) Bauer, Brooke (Mike) Gourley, and Blayne (Ches) Mallery. He also leaves behind his six grandkids, Mikayle and Mason Gourley, Nolan and Seth Mallery, and Trajan and Tallyn Bauer. He was preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Shirley Bauer and his sister Penny Bauer Ence.
Brent was larger than life and left a lasting impression on every person that ever met him. To know him was to love him. Per Brent’s request there will be no services held.
