Randy James Geiger
1965 – 2014

Randy James Geiger was 48 years old when he died in his Tehachapi home on May 3, 2014.  He was born on May 17, 1965, in Burbank to Robert Louis and Roseanne (Donnelley) Geiger.  He had two older brothers, Robert and Ray Geiger, and one older sister, Renee Geiger.

Growing up, Randy enjoyed science fiction, and his best friend was Tom Gottenbos. Randy played Zombie #13 in Return of the Living Dead II, with his friend Tom. They had to eat cookie dough with barbeque sauce as brains, and they enjoyed it.

Randy was an engineer, and in his free time he enjoyed playing video games, watching TV shows, especially Star Trek and horror movies, reading, and educating himself. Throughout his life, Randy lived in California, in North Hollywood, Van Nuys, Santa Clarita, and lastly Tehachapi.  He traveled to a number of different states and went on a tour of Europe.  He was a noble Christian and went to church nearly every Sunday.

Randy was preceded in death by both of his parents, his childhood best friend, and his dog, Rocky, who was put down in 2013.  Randy is survived by his daughter, Angela Geiger, born Jan. 19, 2000; and his three siblings.  He is also survived by Ray’s wife, Jeanna Geiger; and their four children, Sarah, Caleb, Josh, and Jonathan Geiger.

Some of his favorite quotes were “Awesomeness,” and, “What’s for dinner and what are the sides?” He had an interesting sense of humor and reflected his intelligence through his jokes.  He will forever hold a place in our hearts.
