Blaine Bauer passed away quietly in his sleep, the morning of his 70th birthday, Sept. 24, 2012 due to complications associated with cancer.
He is survived by Beverly, his loving wife of 48 years, four children, 12 grandchildren, one brother and two sisters.
He is preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and two sisters.
Blaine was a Montana boy at heart which means he loved to be outdoors and never sat still unless there was a BYU football game on.
For the past 30 years he called Newport, Wash., his home, where he taught many, laughed often and was loved by all.
Funeral services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints located on W. Albeni Rd, Priest River, Idaho on Oct. 5 at 4 p.m. and burial services will be held the following day in Ronan, Mont.
Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Newport is in charge of arrangements.
