I will always remember Jim’s smile every time I saw him at church. The joy that came from him was such a blessing! The faithfulness to the Praise Team and media team at Springboro Baptist church will always be remembered. We will miss you but we will see you later with our Lord.
Donna my prayers are with you and your family. Live in Christ, Anita Hudock

Jeff,
Anna, Andrew, and I would like to join with your friends and relatives in expressing our condolences upon the death of your father. After reading his obituary I realize that our country owes him a debt of gratitude for his long and successful service in various capacities.
But this is only part of his legacy. Greatest of all must be his children and grandchildren.
Your family is one of the finest to be found and I think no man or woman could ask for a finer legacy. As your children grow, I hope they will continue to honor the memory of Grandpa.

With deepest sorrow,

Dale Geisel family
