Bud Bauer Story
Bud Bauer was Breuer Metal’s first draftsmen, hired in 1961 to complete approval and shop drawings. At the time he was a recent high school graduate with excellent drawing and detailing skills. Indeed, he was “a real natural!” In 1967 Bud left his position to become a commercial architect, structural engineer, and owner of Bauer Engineering and Design. Despite the fact that he was no longer an official member of the Breuer Metal team, our relationship with Bud continued. Bud served the company for 30 years as our exclusive structural engineer and architect, designing and performing structural calculations as required for state projects.
The bell tower at First Lutheran Church is a prime example of our professional and personal relationship with Bud. The tower was Bud’s last project and it was built and installed by Breuer Metal Craftsmen. It was a honor to have Bud at the erection of the tower and the installation of the bells, as well as to share a plaque with our old friend as a memorial to our service to the church.
Bud Bauer was a truly extraordinary individual who, despite struggling with Muscular Dystrophy, continued to produce remarkable work. Indeed, Bud never allowed his disease to stop him from accomplishing his goals.
