Richard Geller: Husband of 48 years to his beloved wife Linda, Dad to two daughters Ashley and Jacqueline, and Grandpa to 6 grandchildren. He never missed a Saturday car show or a Wednesday at the gun store. To honor him, please bring your favorite car to 11865 Fort King Highway, Thonotosassa FL on February 6 at 1:00. We’ll have a Heavenly car show with snacks, drinks, and most importantly, shared memories. If you knew my dad you knew his strength. My dad was always the person you called when you were lost and couldn’t find your way somewhere or the person who could build you anything that you could dream up. He fixed anything that was broken and had a way of making them look newer than when you first got them. My dad‘s passion has always been for cars, car shows gums and his favorite gun store. You could find him every Saturday at a car show and every Wednesday at the gun shop talking with his friends. He loved restoring things and had more cars than I could ever count. But, there was nothing my dad loved more than his family including us girls, his grandchildren and most importantly my mom. They have been together since they were 16 years old and were set to celebrate 48 years of marriage. My dad always worked hard alongside my mom to build the beautiful life they shared. This Christmas he passed on his trumpet, and his dad‘s trumpet, to Carson who is now the trumpet player of the family as Traditions were important to him as well ( including that we were never allowed to open any gifts before Christmas day! ) My dad was, and will always be, the bravest man I know. He fought a very short lived battle with cancer with everything he had as there was nothing more important to him than being there for his family and most importantly my mom. Today he lost that battle and God has called him home. I hope in heaven he teaches them all how to build furniture, fix what they have instead of getting something new, restore all the old cars and guns that he could always make look brand new and they will all be better for it.
