Sylvester “Pete” Rasmer, 81, of Bay City, was born into eternal life on the morning of Saturday, September 29, 2018 at McLaren Bay Region. Pete was born in Bay City on February 9, 1937, the son of the late Sylvester and Rose Rasmer. While at his next-door neighbor’s house, he happened to meet his niece by the name of Ann Marie Fulco. They dated, fell in love, and were united in marriage on June 27, 1959. He attended St. Stan’s High School and proudly served in the U.S. Air Force for four years. Pete, or “Sy” as he was known at the shop, retired from General Motors – Bay City Chevrolet after 30 years of service. He was a faithful parishioner of Corpus Christi Parish, where he volunteered for the food pantry and fish fries. He enjoyed fishing with his buddies, working in his garage, bonfires, and traveling with his friends in the “TNT Camping Group.” Pete was always helping family and friends by fixing their cars, lawn mowers, and anything else needing to be done. His loyal and hard-working ways will never be forgotten. He leaves to cherish his memory, his brother, Ray Rasmer; brother-in-law, Tom (Kathy) Fulco, sister-in-law, Ruthmary (Jerry) Coleman; sister-in-law, Rose Rasmer, and Dylan Gasta, who was like his grandson, along with many friends, nieces, and nephews.
