Claus S. Bader of DeRuyter, NY passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 10, 2019 in Winchester, VA. A true Hokie through & through Claus lived his life unapologetically and on his own terms. Nicknamed MacGyver, and known as “the cheap guy at work”, he never encountered a problem he didn’t try his best to fix. He said it best, “I am an engineer, I fix things, it’s what I do.” Claus is remembered by his parents Herwig & Brigitta Bader and his siblings Marion Haskins, Christian Bader, & Monica Calvert. Claus lives on in his children Julia Bader-Young, Hannah Bader, & Max Bader. Claus was a dedicated father, loving fiercely & giving freely. Most of all, he lives on in his grandchildren, the most important things in his life. Claus was a magical Papa, who taught his grandchildren fingerguns, gave forehead tattoos, never failed to have them pull his finger, loved whoopie cushions and armpit farts, and as his eldest grandchild would proudly tell you...her papa taught her how to teepee the living room with toilet paper. He is loved, always and forever, no matter what. Claus was a proud employee of Loudoun County Public Schools. He prided himself on the schools he helped create within the Loudoun County Public Schools. He also founded & ran successfully, German Engineering, LLC. Having graduated High School in DeRuyter NY, one of his proudest accomplishments was graduating from Virginia Tech with a degree in Civil Engineering, and subsequently getting his Professional Engineering License. School did not come easily to Claus, many times he was told he couldn’t “do it”, but Claus lived his life his way, was never one to care what other people thought. In lieu of flowers, his children request donations to establish a college fund for his beloved grandchildren. Julia Young 5256 Main St Stephens City VA 22655. A Celebration of his Life will be December 8th from 4-6:00 pm. at the German Table on the Winchester Walking Mall.
