Tom Bauman

June 6, 1937 - Aug. 15, 2012

Radio personality and Laramie County Community College founding father Tom Bauman passed away in the early hours of Wed., Aug. 15, at his home in Cheyenne.

Tom spent most of his life behind a microphone or a portable tape recorder. Even while performing his duties as a board member at LCCC, he often held the recorder as college presidents and fellow board members delivered speeches.

He had plenty of opportunities to gather college-related news in his 37 years as a board member. Tom served on the board from 1968-1978, and from 1983-2010. While not serving the LCCC board, he represented LCCC on the board of the Wyoming Community College Commission.

Tom spent his life working for the betterment of LCCC, as well as Wyoming's other community colleges.

Memorial services will be held Saturday, Aug. 18, at Our Savior Lutheran Church, at 5101 Dell Range Blvd.

Memorial gifts can be made to the LCCC Foundation in honor and memory of Tom Bauman. Contributions will benefit the LCCC Nursing Program.
