Larry Geiger was born in Madison, WI on December 13, 1946, and passed away on Monday, February 25, 2019, in Danville, CA at the age of 72.
Larry Geiger’s life was full of love, laughter, and joy. He was a man of principles, a loving husband, a stalwart friend, and a caring son, brother, father, grandfather, and uncle. He shared himself openly -- volunteering his chaplain services to veterans, studying the word of God with friends, and sharing his love of woodworking with anyone who’d listen.
As a Communications Technician, Larry spent four years in the US Navy serving in Vietnam, the Philippines, and Panama. In the ’70s, he used his technical and logistic skills to build the foundation of his career in technology. His success enabled him to design, build, and manage cutting edge data centers for major corporations like AAA, Kaiser Permanente, and banking industry leaders.
More than his professional accomplishments, Larry is remembered for his contributions to the joy and well being of those in his life who he loved unconditionally. His grandsons will remember their Papa for always letting them know how proud of them he was and for taking the time to share himself with them. Others will remember Uncle Larry for his encouraging words, silly stories, and bizarre favorite sandwich. Friends will remember the buddy willing to help at any time with anything. Those he helped step into their roles as husbands and wives will remember the patient minister who helped start their marriage journeys. Of course, we will always remember Larry as a devoted Green Bay Packers fan & stockholder, an avid reader of mysteries and crime novels, a man in search of the perfect kuchen recipe, and, of course, a kind child of God.
Larry is survived by his wife of 33 years, his son, two daughters, two grandsons, three brothers, several nieces and nephews, and a slew of extended family.
In Larry’s honor, a Celebration of Life service will be held at the Wilson & Kratzer Chapel of San Ramon Valley in Danville, CA on Friday, March 8, 2019, at 1:00 PM. Casual or aloha style attire, please.
