Godfrey Geissberger, Jr.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of US Navy veteran Godfrey Geissberger, Jr. of Grayslake, Illinois. Godfrey, 84, died following complications from heart surgery at Evanston Hospital on Monday, June 15, 2020.

Godfrey was born in Belleville, WI, and worked on his family's farm before joining the Navy. Following his military career, he worked for Rouse's Auto Repair in Libertyville, IL for more than four decades. For the past few years, he has lived in Kenosha as a resident of Kenosha Senior Living.

He was preceded into death by his wife Olive (Cross) Boyd, his father Godfrey and mother Elizabeth (Wurba) Geissberger.

He is survived by his brother Robert Geissberger and two sisters, Dolores Thompson and Evelyn Cipri, and many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Due to concerns with the COVID-19 virus, services will be held at a later date.

I am honored to have known Godfrey for almost 50 years. He was always very kind to me. He was a big influence to me when it came to gardening. He taught me a lot about having a great garden. I will miss our conversations! Rest in Peace Godfrey! Give Mom a kiss for me! Zender

In memory of a man whom our family had grown to know over the past year and the joyful times together playing cards with Godfrey and my mother, Dorothy (seated across from Godfrey, who also pasted 5 days earlier). May you both continue to play 'kings in the corner' and 'uno' in heaven. We will also miss talking with you as you tended to the KSL garden and filled the many bird feeders outside the residents windows.

Godfrey will be missed. I enjoyed a friendship with him. I loved going to play cards with him every week before Covid-19. I loved how he always looked after his friends where he lived. I loved his stories. I will miss you dear friend!!
