Mr. Charles E. Bauers, age 87, of Ashland, Kentucky, passed away Monday, May 3, 2021, at King’s Daughters Medical Center in Ashland, Kentucky.
Charles was born January 21, 1934, in Carter County, Kentucky, a son of the late William and Mabel Phillips Bauers. He graduated from Olive Hill High School and Morehead State University, then worked for Armco/AK Steel, holding several positions. He eventually became an industrial engineer and held that title until retirement after 44 years of service.
Charles loved talking to just about anyone. He had a phenomenal memory that never ceased to amaze people. Charles could remember the names and badge numbers of former plant workers who he hadn’t seen in 25 years. He loved most sports, but his favorites were basketball, football and horse racing and of course he was a UK sports fan.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Margaret Day Bauers; one son, Reginald Phillip Bauers; one daughter, Charla Michelle Bauers; two brothers, James Curtis “J.C.” Bauers and Roy Cecil Bauers; and two sisters, Edna Bauers Carroll and Edra Bauers Barker.

Mansfield, Steven Mansfield, Jason Fielding, Jami Warren, Kristen Gassel, Megan Johnson and Kevin Fielding; 12 step great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews and friends who will sadly miss him.
