Robert G. Bauder

Robert Bauder of Bryan passed from this life into heaven to be with our Lord Jesus Christ at the age of 60 years old on March 29, 2018.  A memorial service will be held on Friday, April 13, 2018 at 10:30AM at Living Hope Baptist Church.

He was born in Galveston, TX on April 14, 1957 to Gerald Joseph and Louisa (Gonzalez) Bauder.  He achieved his Bachelor’s of Science from Texas A&M University and spend the majority of his vocation at the same as a Systems Analyst for the Texas A&M University School of Veterinary Medicine until his retirement.  Robert was a critical thinker and a problem solver. He was a caring and generous man to those in need and would challenge those around him to think outside the box. Robert was a man of God, a prophet, and devoted much of his time to the study of the Bible and prayer.  His sense of humor, strong will, outgoing personality, care, and thoughtfulness will be dearly missed.

He is preceded in death by father and mother Gerald and Louisa (Gonzales) Bauder and grandson Zane Bauder.

Robert is survived by his five sons Rudolph Emmanuel Bauder, Randolph Elijah Bauder, Reinhart Ezra Bauder, Reichart Ezekiel Bauder, and Reuel Enoch Bauder; his sisters Colleen Bauder Cook, Jeannette Bauder Beaven, and Karen Bauder; and his grandchildren Shoshanna Bauder, Declan Bauder, Jace Bauder, Desmond Bauder, and Lumen Bauder.

Jesus said “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28. Rest in Peace.


  1. Robert Bauder was a good friend. Someone with whom I could share views about theology, computers, science and the love of God. We used to have breakfast together with our dear friend Gary Manthei at Los Nortenos in downtown Bryan on Saturday mornings. I remember Robert as a faithful follower of God’s Word and one who trusted in Him. So much so, that when a bar opened across the street from his house, Robert began a prayer walk around that bar every night praying that God would not only close the bar but that He would make the place where it stood desolate. God answered Robert’s prayer and the bar and building are completely gone. He and Gary are sharing breakfast with Jesus now. I miss them both.

  2. Our hearts and prayers are with you, beloved Bauder family, in your loss, with the profound hope that our Lord Jesus makes all things new.

  3. Colleen, Jeannette, Karen and family, I was so sadden to hear about the loss of Robert. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Peace be with you,

  4. To Mr. Bauder’s family,

    Your father was a patient in one of my Clinics at UTMB, he was the most sweetest, kindest man. I have now since moved to a different clinic but me and my co worker were reminiscing on patients that we missed and your father’s name came up. We looked him up to see how he was doing and sadly we came across this obituary. My deepest condolence’s to the whole family. He loved his boys and always told me many stories about ya’ll. I remember one time after I fought hard with his insurance to get him into MD Anderson that he was go grateful he bought me some beautiful fake flowers( He said he wanted them to be fake so that they never would die) I currently still have on my desk till this day and I absolutely love them and they hold a special place in my heart every time I look at them.

  5. Hi Robert,

    I got to know you sometime in 1985 when I was attending a church service in the Bryan/College Station area. At that time, I was a lonely stranger but after the church service you and your wife Lorelei came to me and you took me to your home where you offered me coffee (I think it was coffee). In recent years, I was sometimes searching the internet hoping to find an email address that would connect me with you because I would have loved communicating with you. Now I see that you have left this world to be with the LORD.
    My dear friend, may your soul rest in peace!

  6. To Rudy. Randy, Reinhart , Reichart, and Reuel,
    It was a honor and a real treat watching you all grow up and being your field trip organizer for many years. We spent many a day together learning new things from canoeing to English. I am very proud of who each of you have become as wonderful men. We are praying for you during this difficult time.
    Your friends always,
