BEAVER DAM — WT Geary (the Produce Man), 90, of Beaver Dam, entered his Heavenly home on Saturday, May 14, 2022. He was born on Jan. 15, 1932, in Echols to the late Grealy G. Geary and Anna Velura Scott Geary. He was a lifetime member of the Church of God Cleveland Tennessee Assembly. He lived a full life, and he loved to worship God, hunt, fish, garden and sell vegetables — where he serviced the hospital, doctors’ offices, banks, insurance offices, pharmacies, and many other local businesses, as well as individuals. Often times during the deliveries he would share his love for Jesus with his customers and end the visit with a prayer. He was a Sunday School teacher, choir leader, Sunday School superintendent, Wednesday night leader, as well as anything else he could do to serve the Lord.
Aside from his parents, he was preceded in death by the love of his life and wife of 56 years, Sarah Miller Geary; one son, Rev. Mark D. Geary; two sisters, Dorothy Abbott and Birdie Farris; and three brothers, Dale Geary, Gordon Geary and Elmer Geary.
He leaves behind to cherish many memories, his daughter, Tammie (James) Hall, of Beaver Dam; his son, Rev. William (Brenda) Geary, of Beaver Dam; one sister, Alma (Jamie) Goff, of Beaver Dam; and two brothers, James (Minnie Lou) Geary, of Beaver Dam, and Homer (Peggy) Geary, of Bardstown. He was blessed with six grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren.
