Mr. Matthew Eric Bauer, age 45 of Stuart, Virginia passed away on Thursday, February 17, 2022. He was born in Talbot County, Maryland on December 6, 1976, to the late Richard G. Bauer and Rebecca Lou Biery Bauer. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three brothers, Richard G. Bauer, Jr., F. John Bauer Sr., and Thomas D. Bauer; and one sister, Jaclyn J. Bauer. Matthew was a retired EMT/Firefighter. He was the type of guy who would give you the shirt off his back or the last dollar in his pocket. He loved spending time with friends and family chilling, playing games, and having bonfires. He always had a story to tell, enjoyed helping others, and riding his lawnmower; “Lawnmower Man” as he was affectionately called. His top priority was his family, he was always excited to spend time with his kids and grandkids.
