Obituary

Naugatuck, CT Linden K. Baummer, 94, passed away on Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at Beacon Brook Health Center surrounded by his loving family.

Linden leaves his wife of 70 years with whom he was inseparable, Lucille (Harper) Baummer; his daughter, Diane Baummer; his four grandchildren and nine great grandchildren, Leslie Sporre, husband Ian and sons Ryker and Kaven; Jennifer Genthe, son Trevor, and daughter Ashtyn; Kimberly Michael, husband Shannon and sons Brayden and Riley; and Lyndsey Brenes, husband Robert and sons JJ, Tyson, and Ethan.

After serving as an electrician in the Navy, Linden worked for 43 years at Uniroyal Chemical. He was hard-working, humble, meticulous, and was always up for a good laugh with his buddies. A self-taught musician, he could play 6 instruments and also enjoyed building and fixing things in his home workshop, going out to lunch and traveling to the casino with his wife, teaching his grandchildren to ride their bikes, helping with Science projects, building the coolest "slip and slide" ever, and cracking others up with his sense of humor. A devoted husband, father, "Grampy," "Popi," uncle, cousin, and friend Linden will truly be missed.

Mr. Baummer and his wife were regular customers of ours for years. The two of them were always smiling, quick to laugh and always a pleasure to talk to. He was a true gentleman and the world was blessed to have him. My condolences to the entire family.

Sincerely,

Lori Schmidt Needham and the staff of Schmidts & Serafines
