Dear Geis family,
Dave was a long time friend of both my husband, John, and I. We were recently saying we have to call Dave! Needless to say we are shocked and greatly saddened to learn of his passing. We used to go to dinner at fun places, and we enjoyed spending time with him other than on business. He will be greatly missed. He was such a thoughtful man. Always making sure we got his annual Christmas Chocolate covered almonds. I do not think I will ever again be able to look at a chocolate almond and not think of his sweet, kind, thoughtful nature. God Bless you all.
