Gerhard Hermann Georg Bauerlein
Gerhard Hermann Georg Bauerlein, age 86, of Mahopac passed away on Nov. 18, after a mercifully short journey with ALS. He was born in Bad Mergentheim, Germany to Anna and Hermann Bauerlein.
Gary lived his entire life knowing that good things would happen because he simply wouldn’t ever acknowledge the alternative. He was a proud German American and a devout Lutheran, with a career in electrical engineering.
Gary was pre-deceased by his brother, Henry Bauerlein, and his children, Herman Paul Bauerlein and Elizabeth Bauerlein. He is survived by his wife of almost 46 years, Milka Bauerlein, and daughters: Carol Stefunek, John; Katrina Bauerlein; Erica Blouch, Drew; Gerri Hutson; and beloved niece, Marta Miller, Steven. He will be missed by his grandchildren, Austin, Devo, Harrison, Isaac, Lucas, Martin, Matthew, Natalia, Timothy and Zach.
Visitation hours will be on Friday, Nov. 22 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac. Funeral service will be on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 4:30 p.m. at Grace Lutheran Church in Yorktown Heights.
