Dylan (Bauschy) Bruce Bausch, 25, of Boscobel, passed away tragically and unexpectedly on Sunday, July 4, 2021.
He graced the world with his presence on October 20, 1995 in Lancaster, the son of Bruce and Tracy (Smith) Bausch.
Dylan’s childhood years were spent mostly in Boscobel where he often enjoyed going out to the family farm, playing baseball and cheering for the Atlanta Braves, playing video games with friends and family, watching shows and movies such as the “Good ole Duke Boys” and “WWF,” and going swimming and camping down in Bagley, just like his dad and his Uncle Kurt did when they were boys. A lot of those same activities that he enjoyed as a youth then carried with him throughout his life.
Dylan graduated from Boscobel High School in May 2014. After high school, Dylan then moved up to La Crosse for a few years while he was in search of his true calling. While in La Crosse, Dylan was the life of the party and always good for many laughs, oftentimes like he was back home. He definitely inherited the “social genes” from his loving families as he could strike up a conversation with anyone and thoroughly enjoyed getting to know that person as they tipped a few cold ones back and made lifelong memories. He had an infectious laugh and personality that impacted everyone he came across. Dylan formed many great relationships while in La Crosse which comes to no surprise as he was a great friend to all.
After La Crosse, Dylan moved back to Boscobel where he continued his efforts in the workforce at Wisconsin Secure Program Facility (WSPF) in Boscobel where he formed many new friendships. Dylan enjoyed spending time with family and friends doing an assortment of activities from watching an array of shows to playing video games to cruising the backroads to being the prankster he was, Dylan simply loved spending time with his loved ones every chance he got and making memories, and lastly, spending time with his two cats, Bo and Spike. It was the decision to join WSPF that would help him find his true calling.
It wasn’t until recently that Dylan truly found his calling, which was to enlist and serve his country proudly like his Grandpa Bernie and his great uncles, in the United States Army. At this point, anyone that knew Dylan knew just how passionate and patriotic he was about joining the Army, and when he set his mind to something, he was bound and determined to accomplish his goals. He was so ecstatic and excited for this new opportunity. He knew it was going to be one of the toughest challenges that he was ever faced with, but at the end of the day, it was all worth it to him since he was going to be doing something that he cared much about which was protecting and serving our proud country.
He is survived by his parents, Bruce and Tracy Bausch of Boscobel. A sister; Majesta (Rick) Molzof of Lancaster. A brother; Colten Smith of Boscobel.
