How Did We Do?

Byron Nelson Baumgartner age 83, died at 7:49 a.m., Monday, September 3, 2018 at his residence.
Born April 2, 1935 in Burlington, Iowa, he was the son of Floide and Lillian Nelson Baumgartner. On September 1, 1959 he married Rosemarie Kraemer in Saarbrucken, Germany.
Mr. Baumgartner was a graduate of Burlington High School and Junior College, State University of Iowa, and Western Illinois University. He served 2 years in the United States Army in Germany and later recalled to duty with the 495th Engineer Battalion.
Mr. Baumgartner taught Industrial Technology at West Burlington Junior-Senior High School for 37 years, retiring in 1997. He also worked summers at CB & Q R.R., G.E. and IAAP.
He was a long time member and former Sunday School teacher at West Burlington Methodist Church.
He was an avid hunter, trapper and fisherman, enjoying nature and outdoor activities. He also enjoyed old time country music, auctions, yard sales, working in his yard, travelling, driving Chevy pick-ups and his Mustang convertible.
His idea of a perfect day would be to grab a shotgun or fishing rod, jump in his pick-up truck, turn on some old time country music and head out to his favorite lake or hunting grounds.
He was an active long time member of the Y.M.C.A. , where he enjoyed exercising and socializing with friends.
He developed an interest in local history, collecting photos and information about West Burlington, and the former CB & Q rail shops, and providing slide programs for various local organizations.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
Survivors include his wife Rosemarie; two sons, Michael of Schaumburg, Illinois, John of Streamwood, Illinois; two daughters, Jean of West Burlington, Terri of North Liberty. Interment will be in Aspen Grove Cemetery.

Mr "B" will truly be missed. Some of my best memories of school were in his class. Him and Mike came out to Julee and I's house a year or so ago. It was always nice to see him. He would always have stories that he remembered that he would tell you about yourself. Always with that dry sense of humor and big smile. I will miss driving by and seeing him sitting in his chair outside or in front of his yard sales. Deepest sympathies to the whole family. Never to be forgotten for sure.

Sorry for your loss.

My dad, Don Hopkins, taught with Mr. Baumgartner for eleven years at West Burlington High School. The two of them hit off immediately and were good friends. My dad passed away in Feb. of this year, and I like to t think they've met up again in Heaven. Deepest condolences to your family.

Lori Andrews on Sep 4, 2018

I'm so sorry for your loss. Mr. Baumgartner was an amazing teacher and part of the reason I became a drafter. He used to laugh and ask why someone who could do well with paper and pencil in his class couldn't cut a straight line to save her life. Guess I've always just been better at the design part. He will be deeply missed.
