Dylan Allen Geitgey
Dylan Allen Geitgey, 11, a resident of Louisville, KY, met Jesus in person on June 27, 2010. He was struck by a car while riding his bicycle, with alcohol being blamed for the incident.
Born March 5, 1999, in Fort Bellvoir, VA, Dylan recently graduated from fifth grade at Chancey Elementary School. His brief life consisted of spending every day creating joy, laughter and amazing memories for those he loved and befriended. With a long-term goal of becoming a Marine, like his daddy, his short term ones involved basketball, swimming, biking, camping, and fishing. With every adult and child he met, he leaves a void and a longing to hear one more moment of his laughter. With abounding strength and energy he played and with his whole heart he loved. In recognition of that generous spirit and sacrificial heart of a true Marine, he became an organ donor. Our loss is truly heaven's gain.
Dylan was the beloved son of Bobby and Amy (Strawder)Geitgey.
He is survived by two siblings, Shane Geitgey and Kelsey Geitgey, both at home; paternal grandparents, Kit Geitgey and Sharon and Ted Reese, all of Canton; maternal grandparents, Blaine and Julia Strawder of Carrollton and Sherry Bishop of Canton; paternal great grandparents, Max and Joan Willaman and Bill and Shirley Geitgey, all of Canton, and maternal great grandmother, Barbara Plunkett of Carrollton.
Calling hours will be held at Northeast Christian Church, in Louisville, KY, Thursday, July 1 from 12- 4 p.m. and July 3 from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. in Carrollton at Carrollton Believer's Fellowship, with graveside services following at the Westview Cemetery.
