Obituary for Wesley W. Geist
Wesley Wayne Geist, 57 of Eagle, Colorado was born in Eureka, South Dakota and passed away on Thursday, October 12, 2017 in Denver, Colorado.

He fought a tough fight and is now in Heaven with our Good Lord and Savior.

He loved his girls. He was tough but in a way, they understood his love. He loved to do many things, and was very creative. Mom always said that she didn’t know where we got our creativity but we soon learned it was from our dad. In his spare time, he began a woodworking shop at home and created things from beautiful furniture to custom walking sticks. He made gifts and things for the family. Wes had a plan to sell some of his works, but never got the chance. He loved to take his daughter, Alex, up to the horse rescue, where they adopted a horse. He would always go and find some sort of way to help the rescue, fixing the barn or staining some signs. He was supportive and understanding. Wes would be there to help anyone in any way he could because that’s just the kind of person he was. He taught his daughter, Sam, how to drive her first car, and he gave her the courage to travel to a whole new country. He taught both his girls how to shoot a gun, and how to stand up for themselves. He taught them how to be brave and to be strong. He loved them both and his grand-puppy too. He was a wonderful father and one of the kindest people you could meet, Wes will be missed greatly by his family and friends.

We love him and miss him dearly, but we know he is now in a safe place of peace and comfort. We will see him again someday!

His parents were Melvin and Carol Geist of Eureka, South Dakota.

Survived by his wife Robin Geist and daughters Sam Geist and Alex Geist of Eagle; sisters Cathy Geist of Plymouth, MN and Jodi Gerdes and her husband Bill of Aberdeen, SD; brother Dan Geist and his wife Sara of Crookston, MN; nieces and nephews Erin Schipper and her husband Nate of Westminster, CO, Lindsey Gerdes and Keith Elliott and their three children of Fort Collins, CO, Andreas, Marietta and Katherine Geist of Crookston, MN; aunts and uncles Duane and Marguerite Bieber of Plymouth, MN, Ron and Donna Bieber of Coppell, TX; mother and father in law Harold and Jeanne Nicholas of Yuma, AZ; sister in law Melissa Langdon and her husband Brian Langdon, children Emma and Dylan of Arvada, CO and brother in law Richard Janney and his wife Jamie, children Cody and Blake of Arvada, CO
