Remembrance of a gentle soul. To John, I want to say thank you! I regret not doing it sooner but I know that in the place you are you can heard me. John was and amazing gentil soul, quiet at times, with a big heart You and Mariana took me in when I most need it, you made me feel welcomed in your home gave me the support I needed as such a young age. I will keep in my heart all the memories build at the time I spended with the Geer Santa family. May God embraced you in His holiness and give you the promised life, to be in His Holy presence. Amen

Integrity, Wisdom. Humor. Of the many qualities John possessed, these were among the standouts. John was a true friend and mentor for me and the years working together at Bradsby Group were among my favorites. We shared many weekends of golf together and his wry sense of humor always came through. On one particular round, I was tracking to break 80,.. Truth be told, John was always a better golfer than me, though on this day I was playing well. With one hole to go and needing s bogey to break 80; John got that serious look on his face and asked quizzically; "you are having a great round - what are you gonna do to screw up the round?" I double bogeyed - John had once again rented space in my head again as he often did, to his delight! All of our rounds together were like this and I loved those times together.. I also loved hearing the stories of him growing up in Mississippi, the night dives he took fishing, all the stories of his baseball career, as well as his time at MCI and of coming to Colorado. Some of my wife's and my favorite memories were of shared meals with John & Mariana, whether they were out on the town, or in their home in Centennial. John had such a razor-sharp wit and an approachability that always made you feel welcome, safe and secure. While we were great partners at work, it was the side stories of sports and statistics that really made the day. For me, John was a human database of sporting facts, figures and statistics - his wisdom seemed to know no bounds. Even though geography had separated us, a simple phone call could bring us right back up to speed. It is very easy to say that we loved John and he is most certainly missed. Rest easy my friend.
Johnny Geer, a good friend since Beach Elementary. John always made an effort to keep in touch over the years and when we spoke it was like we saw each other everyday or were still on the playground at Beach School. He was always interested in everyone and everything Pascagoula.I'll miss our long phone calls talking sports , politics and old friends and seeing him when when he ventured down this way for a reunion or to check on his Mom. I know he was excited to be in Florida and wish he had more time to enjoy it. Peace and love , my friend. .

We will always remember John's laugh and the way we talked sports, particularly baseball. You will be missed, John.

Johnny was my brother, Tommy, best friend growing up. Johnny was always sweet to all of us.
To my brother from another mother, I say thank you for all the memories and know that we will continue to look after Mariana. Yes, you left us too soon; but know God needed you with him.
