He was born December 5, 1934, in St. Louis County to Blanche Carter and Walter Bauer. He was owner/operator of Empire Glass Company in San Bernardino, CA, until his retirement. Preceding him in death are his parents and his stepson, Tom Kennedy.

Norm had such a free and loving spirit. He loved water - oceans, lakes, rivers and sprinklers. He loved sunsets, National Forests, See’s chocolates, and dancing to Bobby Darin’s “Mack the Knife”. Norm was an avid car enthusiast providing him many hours of enjoyment. Norm was honored and proud to have served with the USMC in Korea, and for this we thank him.





Norm’s family would like to thank the staff at both Preferred Hospice and South Hampton Place for the loving care they provided him for the past 5 ½ years. For this we are forever grateful.



“The God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, support, strengthen, and establish you”. 1 Peter: 5:10
