Keith Bauer's Memorial Fund

As most of you may already know, my brother, Keith Bauer, lost his battle with addiction on Saturday night, September 23, 2017. He was found by passersby who called 911, but sadly it was just too late. So at 11 pm I received a knock on my door and was brought some of the worst news I had ever been given. My world was rocked. My air stolen. My soul shredded. These words don't seem powerful enough. They are too weak to describe that gut wrenching agony. As if this pain is not enough of a cross to bear, we are now faced with the stress and struggle of affording a proper and dignified memorial for him. Those of you that know us well know all too well of my recent struggles. Money has been tight and continues to be. We are fighters and survivors, we will find a way, but we need help. We are asking for donations to help fund his funeral services. We want to hold a memorial service in Florida as well as in NJ so that all of those affected by this shocking and untimely passing can have an opportunity to mourn and hopefully begin to heal. I need to get to Florida ASAP and say my good-bye and bring him and his beloved Harley home. Many have asked about Harley and you can rest assured she will be coming home with me. We have decided that any additional monies should be used to fund addiction services for those that do not have financial resources to do so. Such as The Willoughs in Naples that recently offered him their services at no cost. And Cameron Villas where he lived, worked and cherished. He spent every moment of his sobriety loving, giving, mentoring, helping and selflessly caring. Please help us honor that and show him the respect and dignity he deserves. Thank you.
