Baumer attended Girard College where he learned the machinist’s trade. This is how he got to work as a machinist at Bethlehem Steel’s Grace Mine near Morgantown. He worked there for about 25 years. He was also a husband and a father to 4 children.

Active even in his 90s, Horace drove around in his truck and kept his whole neighborhood stocked with fresh tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants from his garden. Baumer continued to live independently in his own home until July 2022.

LongeviQuest is extending our deepest condolences to the bereaved family and friends of Mr. Horace Baumer.
