I’m so thankful for the life that Mr. Geiger lived. He loved deeply, sang loudly, and always found opportunities to make people laugh. He had the best one liners and always imparted so much wisdom. I’m sad that he is no longer here, but I’m thankful that he is now rejoicing with Jesus. I’m sure he heard the words “Well done good and faithful servant”

Thank you for leaving your legacy and being such an amazing headmaster and friend

With heavy hearts a hero of the faith and real warrior of King Jesus went home into the arms of His Savior. Indulge me for a minute but my heart overflows with a mixture of pain and joy in this moment. I don’t use the term hero lightly. We ascribe it so often to ones of selfish gain or vain pursuits that someone how inspire us towards our own selfish aspirations. But John Geiger was a hero in life and death. John was a hero because his life was not his own but belonged body and soul to his Lord Jesus Christ. This was lived out daily by a man who treasured his wife and kids in a way that I said that’s the kind of family I want to have, that’s how I want to do it. He sacrificed his life daily in leading a staff and school to better treasure Christ in the pursuit of glorifying God through education. He mentored men like me, men who exhausted him surely with our immaturity and lack of vision so often. Yet he labored to see others treasure Christ and to live with an eye for the Kingdom of God instead of the our own little kingdoms. He handle adversity and tragedy with a trust they God has a plan and works even the worst of what we can see for His glory and our best. He used his diagnosis of ALS as a means to draw many’s attention to the knowledge of Jesus Christ crucified and raised for our sins that we might have new life and redemption by His blood. Johns life was a living testimony that sin and death don’t get the last word, for our King reigns and ever since the beginning has been bringing about redemption and working restoration until we are finally restored in heaven. John helped me see more and more the beauty of glory that awaits us at the end our our lives for all whose faith rests in Jesus. He helped me see that no matter what we experience, good or bad, Jesus is the treasure. Today John rejoices as he holds on to his treasure Jesus Christ more tightly than he’s even been able to before. John feels whole in a way I long to feel whole. But as God is glorified as
