Jeffrey Lynn Geiger

April 20, 1971 — February 16, 2022

Jeffrey Lynn Geiger, 50, of Columbia City, Indiana, passed away Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at Parkview Regional Medical Center. Born April 20, 1971 in Fort Wayne, he was the son of Jerry and Cheryl (Doty) Geiger.

Growing up in Union Township, he first attended school in Coesse and while attending Columbia City Joint High School, Jeff played football and was a basketball manager. After graduating with the Class of 1989, Jeff went on to graduate from Purdue University in 1993 with a bachelor's degree in Agricultural Education. For nine years he taught at various high schools along with being an FFA Advisor. In 2002 Jeff began working for Farm Works Software/Trimble.

Growing up, Jeff was involved in FFA, a 10 year member of 4-H, and an Eagle Scout. He was involved with 4-H his entire life. Jeff was devoted year round to helping the Whitley County 4-H in the community. For the past 11 1/2 years, Jeff served on the Fair Board and has been President of the Whitley County 4-H Inc. for the past 7 1/2 years. Jeff loved his family, was a proud Purdue Boilermaker fan, and enjoyed attending local auctions and working Saturday nights for Columbia Auction Service.

A man with a heart of gold, Jeff was caring, a giver and would do anything for everyone. He might have been a little ornery at times, but Jeff had a great sense of humor and will be missed by his family, friends, and his community.

Jeff is survived by his mother, Cheryl Geiger; sister, Jainele Smith; sister and brother-in-law, Julie and Donnie Haire; niece, Emma Smith; nephews, Logan Haire and Landon Haire; aunts and uncles, Barb and Steve Crozier, Judy Demske, Jess and Kay Geiger, Joan and Joe Miller, and Barb Geiger; and numerous cousins.
