I am so very sad to hear of the passing of Geater.  He was agreat guy and good friend to my Dad.  He had a heart of gold.  I know he and my Dad are having a cocktail now.  I remember going to see my Dad and looking forward to finding out what new treasure Mike had found and brought over for my Dad while out on his dumpster searches.  I know he is at peace now being reunited with Mikey, but for everyone else that is left behind here will miss him fiercely.  I pray for Kim, Tash and the rest of the family that you all can find peace in time.  Sending you my deepest sympathy. -Heather Shreiner Wrigley

About seven months ago I walked into Owen's Bar and there you sat at the opposite end, I automatically came up for one of those "fatherly hugs" that you always greeted me with. I sat down beside you and had the absolute best conversation with your kind words of encouragement and wisdom I felt so much better about myself and circumstances. Realizing that I can be the individual I was meant to be.You helped me to see something within myself that I had lost and I will forever be grateful for your presence, that contagious smile, and the time you took to talk to me....you always did! To your family and friends I am so incredibly sorry for your loss Geat was an amazing man and will truly be missed❤My thoughts and prayers to all....Our loss here on earth is nothing compared to heavens gain there's no doubt Mikey was waiting to welcome you with open arms God Bless you my friend forever in my heart Love you, Sue Shoe
