He was a sincere man who loved serving the Lord and helping others. He worked for RCA for over 20 years and retired from Indiana Packers in 2005 after 13 years of service. He was passionate about reading, gardening and lawn care. He was looking forward to spring so he could take care of his lawn. Mr. Geisler was very active in his church and with the Burnettsville community. He loved playing cards. Above all, he cherished his family and friends along with the time spent with them.

Visitation will be from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday at Springer-Voorhis-Draper Funeral Home.

Funeral services will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home with Rev. David Nishiser of the Burnettsville Church of the Brethren officiating.

Military rites will be rendered following the services at the funeral home.

In keeping with Doyle’s wishes of being cremated, there will be no graveside services.
