Bauer will be remembered as a 'gentle spirit'

Dave Cawthon cherished his friendship with the Rev. Roy Bauer, the longtime pastor of St. Peter Parish who passed away late Friday night. "The Quincy area lost a saint, but heaven gained one," Cawthon said. "And that's a fact." Bauer, 83, was one of the most recognized and respected individuals of the parish, even after his June 2004 retirement.
