Mark Anthony Geiger, 26, Mandan, passed away May 17, 2019, in an automobile accident.
A Mass of Christian burial was held on May 21 at Spirit of Life Catholic Church, Mandan, with the Rev. Chris Kadrmas as celebrant. Burial was held at Mandan Union Cemetery.
Mark was born on March 22, 1993, to Mark and Cherry (Friesz) Geiger in Bismarck. Always a happy, calm, and content child, he was the light of our life. He was a very generous person who got along with everyone. He had the biggest heart with the brightest blue eyes. Mark had a deep passion for football, movies (especially Marvel), and all history topics. He had a love for his trucks and his cat Taz, along with sentimental attachments to family heirlooms, such as restoring his dad’s truck and cherishing his grandpa’s railroad watch.
He attended school in Mandan, where he started in sports such as basketball and baseball, but found his passion for music starting in the fifth grade where he had a natural talent with the trombone. He has many, many memories from his music, including special trips to Minneapolis, Chicago, Boston, and Dallas. In 2011, he graduated from Mandan High School, then attended Bismarck State College's mechanical maintenance program. While in school he worked at McDonalds, Hedahls, and O’Reilly’s. He began his career working at TrueNorth Steel, Great Plains Technical Services and Northern Improvement when he started at Space Aliens, where he continued to work.
We are deeply saddened by losing him; he is forever in our hearts. We are extremely grateful to have had him in our life.
