Kenneth Eugene Bauldry, 83, of Sturgeon Bay, passed away Friday
afternoon, February 24, 2017 at Bornemann Nursing Home in Green Bay after
suffering a stroke two weeks ago.
He was born July 13, 1933 in Sturgeon Bay, the son of the late Harry Sr.
and Avila (Trepanier) Bauldry. Ken graduated from Sevastopol High School with
the Pioneer class of 1951. He sailed on the Great Lakes before serving his
country with the United States Army in Austria and Germany from 1954 until
1956. Ken was very proud that his family’s service to our country’s military
spanned the last five generations of Bauldrys.
On February 23, 1957, he was united in marriage to Harriet Vivian Coel
at St. Phillip's Catholic Church in Green Bay. They were blessed with 60 years
Following Ken’s service to our country, he was employed with Western
Electric then later with Wisconsin Bell. He retired from working in telephone
service technology in 1984 and was able to enjoy time on the golf course,
tending to his garden, hunting, and walking. Those who knew Ken were probably
visited and gifted each harvest season with a bag full of freshly-picked
vegetables. He loved hunting with his boys and family friends.
Ken was a natural athlete and naturalist. He loved being outdoors, and
he loved to play baseball. Winning many trophies and honors in high school as a
pitcher continued for years after in the Door County League. Ken continued
playing while in the service where he was recognized as a great arm and pitched
for his base touring around Europe in the Army League. When he was honorably
discharged, Ken was a valued player in the Green Bay Fast Pitch League where he
pitched for the Parish Printing team. He was a talented golfer and played in
many Door County Golf leagues. Ken also worked for the Bertschinger Family at
the Alpine Golf Course in his retirement, a golf course where he caddied as a
child, walking down the bluff to the golf course from the Bauldry Family Farm.
Ken was a valued and wonderful part of the staff and became part of the
family at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay in the 2000s as he helped on many
visitations, funerals, and also in caring for the funeral home facilities and
grounds for over 10 years.
