Doran Lee Geer was my father and man was he a GREAT one. He helped me so much throughout life. We would speed countless hours practicing baseball just to make me better. He was my father, my hero, and my best friend. Up until this past football season when he started feeling ill one of us was calling the other before an Alabama game, at halftime, and after the game ( unless Alabama lost because we would both be too mad to talk). He was a GREAT MAN and will be missed by many. He loved to walk so now I know he's walking the streets of gold with his Lord and Savior. I LOVE YOU POP!!!
YOUR SON CHRIS

How could I ever say all the things I am feeling. Your leaving has left an enormous hole in my heart. Words could never convey the deep love and admiration I have always had for you. You were not only my brother, you were my friend. I will cling to the lifetime of wonderful memories we shared with our spouses and our kids. And I thank God for the belief that we will meet again in heaven.

Words can’t describe how amazing my Pappy was. He bent over backwards for anyone and everyone. Took everything to heart. (In a good way) You asked for ten dollars he gave twenty. He was everyone’s best friend, shoulder to cry on, person to rant to ,and most importantly the backbone to the family. All around an amazing person. You are so very missed Pappy, I love you to the moon and back a million times!!

Before Doran went into the service he lived with us for a couple years. I always considered him my big brother also. He called my mother mom. Sorry for your loss.

I never met Doran, but his sister, Kathy, shared that he was an amazing brother. I noticed he has an “eye smile”. That tells me that he lived his life to the fullest. I am so sorry for your loss.
