Obituary: Clarence Raymond Bauerbach
Clarence Raymond Bauerbach, 84, of Marietta, Ohio, passed away, September 7 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was born on March 8, 1936 in Waterford, to the late Mildred and Paul Bauerbach.
Clarence graduated from Waterford High School. Clarence went straight from high school to Marietta Concrete building silos. Later, Clarence co-owned Schilling and Bauerbach until he opened his own company, Bauerbach Builders. Since his “retirement”, Clarence has worked for multiple local contractors.

Advisory Board for Carpentry at the Career Center. He was a dedicated member of The Basilica of Saint Mary of the Assumption and was a former Parish Council Member. He enjoyed pulling tractors on the OSTPA/NTPA circuit for many years. In his spare time, he created masterpieces out of wood in his shop for the church, his family, and friends.
