Born on November 2, 1934, in Lewisburg, PA, he was a son of the late C. Geyer and Lottie W. Berge. Bud graduated from Lewisburg High School, class of 1952, where he played baseball, basketball and football. He received his B.S. degree from Lock Haven State Teachers College, class of 1956, where he served as class president his senior year. He received his Master's from Montclair State College in 1966. He began teaching and coaching sports at Blain Union High School in Blain, PA. Thereafter he was Director of Recreation at Hackettstown, NJ. In addition he announced sports on the local radio station. He helped open Hyde Point Regional High School in Sussex, NJ where he served as a guidance counselor, head basketball coach and assistant football coach and was active in the community. Bud joined the Lutheran Church in America national staff as a counselor with the Lutheran Laity Movement Fund Raising and Counseling Service and held extensive congregational, institutional and synod wide campaigns throughout the United States. He was also with Lutheran Brotherhood and a UCC Planned Giving Consultant. Later he was coordinator for Southside Ministries in Bethlehem and served as floor coordinator for the DaVinci Science Center. Bud served in the Army Reserved for six years, reaching rank of staff sergeant while being the Battle Group's #1 Instructor and coached the post basketball team while on active duty. Bud cherished his childhood memories of summers at Camp Nikomahs in Union County and Camp Bil-O-Wood in Ontario, Canada. He also had great memories as a counselor along with his college friends on the waterfront of a private camp at Great Barrington, MA. Bud was a great ambassador for his community, the Lehigh Valley, and Bethlehem in particular. He chaired the Citizens Christmas City Committee and co-chaired the Advent Breakfast for many years during which he received a citation from the mayor for his outstanding dedication and leadership. He also received the Wagner Alumni Achievement Award from the Lock Haven Alumni Association in 2006 in recognition of outstanding community service. Bud served as judge of elections in Hanover Township for several years. He served on the board of First Night and was emcee for some opening and closing ceremonies. He also served on the board of two Christian schools in New Jersey and PA and chaired the nominating committee for a hospital association in NJ. He portrayed Asa Packer for a Bethlehem event and George Washington for Bethlehem's 250th Anniversary along with coordinating all ethnic groups during Bethlehem Sings. His most noted and beloved portrayal was St. Nicholas for all 22 years of Christkindlmarkt. He embodied the true spirit of St. Nicholas, caring and loving children of all ages who visited him from an infant 4 days old to a 104 year old man from Massachusetts. Bud was a man of a strong faith who lead a true Christian life and his love of God shone through in all that he did. His entire life was a ministry. He was an active member of St. Mark's Lutheran Church in Bethlehem Township, serving as a lector, worship assistant, greeter, mentor, Adult Sunday School discussion leader, Vacation Bible School leader and teacher, and coaching boys church league basketball teams. He lead a prayer group, Bible studies and served on Evangelism, Christian Ed, Mutual Ministry, Call Committees and Church Council. He also served on synod and Youth Encounter Committees; was a board member of the Bethlehem Area Council of Churches and a keynote speaker at community and church events. He touched many lives when he lead worship services at Manor Care Bethlehem and Gracedale. He and Donna always looked forward to Pastor Peter's Thursday morning Bible Studies. He was an avid sports fan, especially following his beloved St. Louis Cardinals, even receiving a special phone call from their coach, Mike Matheny, during his illness. Bud delighted in his memorable "roadtrips" with his baseball loving friends. In his "spare time" Bud enjoyed all sports, attending high school plays, dancing, chatting with his friends and his "remote". HIs sense of humor was always evident. Bud still held a deep affection for his 13th Street Gang, his college friends and former students. He took an avid interest in his grandchildren's schooling, sports and extracurricular activities. If you had no less than a few hours, don't ask him about them. The entire family had a celebration of life during the week of July 4th at his son's home in NJ, followed by a celebration of life with his extended "family" in Bethlehem. The outpouring of love and concern was overwhelming. Bud was a humble man who never sought positions or attention, but attracted both. He was beloved by many; a man of many gifts who used them wisely. He was one who so greatly appreciated and so freely acknowledged the gifts of others. During the ups and downs of his three year battle with cancer, he had a disposition of thankfulness to all who attended to him, those who prayed for him and was at peace with the final outcome of ultimate healing. His love for his Lord, his family and all of God's people was unparalleled. He was a true evangelist, spreading joy and God's love in a myriad of ways. He even spent his last days ministering by lifting the spirits of others and looking forward to a "new beginning.". May his spirit live on in all the many lives he touched. Survivors: He was the dearly loved husband and best friend of wife, Donna. They would have celebrated their 35th wedding anniversary on August 3.
