Rick Bauer

Rickie Vernon Bauer (Rick) was born January 24, 1955, in American Falls, ID to John C. and Ida Bauer (Funk). He passed away on December 23, 2021, in his home, surrounded by his family, after a gallant fight with Lewy Body Dementia.

Rick attended the American Falls school district and graduated from American Falls High School in 1973. He met the love of his life, Shonda Quinn, in 1974 and they were married on November 17, 1978. They welcomed their first daughter, Ashley, on January 22, 1982, and their second daughter, Holli, on January 23. 1984. In 1985, he attended night school at ISU to further his welding skills.

Rick farmed in the South Pleasant Valley area for 42 years. At the time of his passing, he farmed alongside his brother, Denny. Together, they established D & R Farms. The brothers took such pride in growing wheat, beets, and potatoes, that they were named top potato growers with McCain foods and top sugar beet growers with Amalgamated Sugar multiple times. He was admired and well respected by many.

Rick is survived by: his wife, Shonda; daughters, Ashley (Boe) Woonsook and Holli (Lawrence) Saiz; granddaughters Kambria Woonsook, and Abby, Lilly, and Aaliyah Saiz; brothers, Dennis (Darlene) Bauer and Johnny (Bonita) Bauer; sisters, Dianna (Dennis) Campbell and Linda (Gary) Roth; and many nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents John C. and Ida, his brother Bobby, nephew Michael, father-in-law Darrell Quinn, and mother-in-law Beverly Schmett.
