I met Floyd 3 years ago when I moved into the same building in which he worked. I got to know he and his wife when Floyd would bring Glenna to the office on Friday's so he could take her to her hair appointments. Glenna always had the most wonderful smile on her face and was so pleasant to visit with, even though I had to re-introduce myself every Friday. Floyd loved her with all of his being. I looked forward everyday to taking my cup of coffee to his office and visiting with him before the work day started. Floyd loved his Lord, his church, his family, and was totally dedicated to his work. At 86 his mind was still as sharp as a tack. It was an honor to have called him my friend. May God bless and comfort the Geer family.

What an awesome man and supporter in
BSA troop 257. He encouraged me through the Eagle Scout Rank and remained a friend through the Years.
His zest for encouraging employees, Family, Scouts & others was a real example.
I have great memories and send my
Sympathy to his family & Friend

I met Floyd 19 years ago through my role as donor recruiter at Hendrick Regional Blood Center (formerly Meek Blood Center). He was faithful to donate blood every 8 weeks because he knew that type O negative was always needed. He always donated on Friday mornings and you could count on him being there at 8:00 sharp. He had a gruff exterior, but underneath was someone who cared deeply about others. He saved countless lives throughout his life by giving the gift of life to others. That is a legacy to be proud of!
