John J. Bauman Jr., 59, of Lindenwold, a volunteer fireman since he was 16, died of a heart attack on Sunday, June 1, at home.
A 1972 graduate of Camden Catholic High School, Mr. Bauman had worked for the Pepsi Cola Bottling Co. in Pennsauken since 1978.
Mr. Bauman was "first a driver and then in the production department," his wife, Patricia, said in a phone interview.
Before going to Pepsi, she said, "he worked for Coca-Cola for a short period."
"I told him, if he worked for Coors or Budweiser, I would have loved him more," she said, with a laugh.
