J.R. joined the Army and was based at Ft Campbell, Kentucky where he served from 1972 - 1975.  He had various jobs in his younger years, however, in his later years he owned his own sheetrock repair business, The Rock Doc.

J.R. enjoyed watching the Dallas Cowboys, going to car races at Texas Motor Speedway and fishing.  One item on his bucket list was to own a Harley motorcycle, which he accomplished a few years ago, he said it was the most freeing and relaxing experience to get on his bike and ride.

J.R was preceded in death by his father, Robert Geeo and younger brother, Richard “Rockye” Baumgardner and his devoted dog, Molly.

“Don’t cry for me, for I have no fear.  All my pain is gone, and Jesus took my tears.

Don't cry for me. This is not the end. I'll be waiting here for you when we meet again.”
