Corey James Baumgartner, 25, of Berne passed away on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at his residence. He was born on January 3, 1994 in Bluffton to James and Lisa (Grogg) Baumgartner.
He was full of life. He cherished his family and enjoyed arguing with his older sister. He loved different types of water sports, fishing and was an avid bowler. He loved to sing but couldn’t hit a note; his mom loved to hear him sing. He had a special place in his heart for his nieces, nephews, all young children and “old people.” He loved to make people laugh and loved laughing himself. He was always the class clown no matter where he was.
