Karl H. Baum, 84, formerly of Nuremberg, passed away Thursday afternoon at Green Ridge Village, Newville, PA where he had resided for the past four years near his only remaining family of which he became a beloved part. They celebrated holidays and birthdays with him where he loved to eat at Cracker Barrel and get silly gifts like flashlights and hats. The staff at Green Ridge adopted him as their own tending to his needs and serving him great PA Dutch meals. He was never without his Dodge hat or his John Deer jacket and was pampered by all.
Born in Nuremberg, July 29, 1933, he was the son of the late Henry and Emma Irene (Wanner) Baum and had spent all of his life in Nuremberg prior to moving to Newville.
Karl was a laborer for North Union Twp., and a member of Emmanuel UCC Church, Nuremberg. He enjoyed watching TV and before his move spent as much time as possible cutting the grass at “The Farm”.
He was preceded in death, in addition to his parents, by a brother, Clifford, and nephews Clifford and Calvin. Surviving are great-nephew, Michael Baum, his wife Shelley, and their son Nathen; Carlisle, PA.
A private graveside service will be held at Mt. Zion Cemetery, Zion Grove. Memorial donations in Karl’s name can be made to Nuremberg-Weston Volunteer Fire Co., 459 Hazle Street, Sugarloaf, PA 18249.
