Carl Baehr " sponsored obituary

Carl at age 36, made his transition at noon on June 4, 2007. His courageous 10-year

battle against cancer began at age 26; he took the high road every day as he fought

the good fight. He was a wonderful man who smiled, joked, and was always willing to

give a helping hand. His family and friends meant everything to him. Carl graduated

from Bowman Elementary and was a Placer High School Graduate, Class of 1990. He loved Auburn and his job at Gold Rush Chevrolet-Subaru. He had many good friends in the Auburn community and elsewhere. Carl learned to swim at six months, began snow skiing at age 2, two sports he excelled in. His favorite weekly event was having breakfast Wednesdays with his mom Violet and dad Donald at the Wings restaurant at the Auburn airport. He enjoyed sailing, golf, and as of late motorcycling. He loved his Harley. He was also a home loving man, enjoying computer gaming, movies, reading, barbecuing and gardening. Carl was a member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Auburn and the Masons Eureka Lodge No 16.
