Roy E. Bauschatz, 73, of Hayes, passed away June 26, 2018 at Heron Cove, Gloucester.
Roy was born Nov. 24, 1944 in Youngstown, Ohio, to Howard E. and Gertrude G. Bauschatz. He served his country in Vietnam in the U.S. Air Force and retired as a sourcing representative after 38 years, most of which was with the Newport News Shipyard.
Roy enjoyed woodworking and model railroading as well as spending time with his family. He was a member of Bethany United Methodist Church and enjoyed singing in the choir. Roy was always kind and we will miss his joyful smile.
The family would like to thank the many loyal friends at Bethany UMC and a special thank you to Christy West and Samantha White of Riverside Walter Reed Hospice. We would also like to recognize Dr. Damico of the Duke University Surgical Team, without whom these last eight years may not have been possible. Also, a special thank you to all the friends that came and helped him build his model railroad layout which has kept him going the last few years.
He was preceded in death by his parents and is survived by his wife of 47 years, Darlene; son, Ross Allen Bauschatz and wife Lori; grandchildren, Taylar Lynne, Maddison Paige, Parker Howard Bauschatz, Travis Cooper and Michael Cooper; brother, Paul A. Bauschatz and wife Gwyn, and many nieces and nephews.
The family will receive friends Friday, June 29, 2018, from 10-11 a.m., followed by a funeral service at Bethany United Methodist Church, 1860 Hayes Road, Gloucester Point, Va. 23062. The Rev. Mike Derflinger will officiate. Interment will follow in the church cemetery with a reception afterward in the church fellowship hall.
In memory of Roy, the family suggests contributions be made to the capital improvement fund at Bethany United Methodist Church, P.O. Box 527, Gloucester Point, Va. 23062 or Riverside Walter Reed Hospice, 7358 Main Street, Gloucester, Va. 23061.
