Bauer, William David Age 75, of North Oaks & Cable, WI. Passed away peacefully Sept. 27, 2021 Bill will be sadly missed by his wife and love of his life, Beverly; children, Matthew (Erin Costanzo), and Meredith; grandchildren, Chiara and Elliot; sister, Elizabeth (William) Morris; five in-law siblings, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews, and many other treasured family and friends. He was preceded in death by parents, David and Grace; and sister, Julia. Bill combined his engineering and legal education in a 40-year career as a patent attorney where he counseled in both corporate and private practice settings. As an avid cross-country skier, Bill completed 30 American Birkebeiners and 1 Norway Birkebeiner. He was an enthusiastic traveler and skilled photographer. He enjoyed reading, the outdoors, and relaxing on the porch watching the seasons unfold. He had a curious mind and was a lifelong learner. Nothing surpassed his love of his family. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the American Birkebeiner Ski Foundation are preferred. Think snow! Bradshaw 651-407-8300
