Glen William Bauer, age 92, of Alta, Iowa, died on Thursday, October 12, 2017, at the Buena Vista Regional Medical Center in Storm Lake.

A son of Fred and Elsie (Lamp) Bauer, Glen was born on August 24, 1925, in Holstein, Iowa. Growing up, Glen attended school in Holstein, graduating from Holstein High School in 1943.

There, he made beautiful handcrafted wood cabinets and furniture until he retired in 2005 at the age of 80. He had a passion for taking a plain piece of wood and making it into a work of art.
