Lee Thomas Geiser, 59, went to our Lord and Savior on October 6, 2020. Born July 29th 1961 in Wadena, MN to Ray and Bernice Geiser, Lee has traveled the world with his family following various jobs in upstream oil and gas, living in Houston, Burnet,San Antonio, and Round Rock Texas, Aberdeen Scotland, Copenhagen and Espjerg Denmark, and Melbourne Australia.Lee attended the University of Minnesota in Minneapolisreceiving a BS in Geological Engineering and later the University of Texas in San Antonio where he received an MBA.He recently retired in 2018 as President of North America at Petrolink Services.
Lee had many hobbies including skiing, golfing, pheasant hunting, sporting clays, fishing, boating, hiking, and brewing beer and wine at home. His true passion, though, was his family and none of those hobbies were as enjoyable if not spent with his wife, son, a daughter, or sibling. He fulfilled a life-long dream of hiking the Milford Sound in New Zealand with his family in 2016. One stone left unturned was a dream of someday taking a trip heli-skiing. Lee was a handyman among men; growing up on a farm, he learned there wasn’t a problem he couldn’t fix himself. He always had a tool for the job and kept every scrap and old part because he knew he may need it someday for the next project. The resounding chorus of voices from those he touched around the world is that Lee was the most selfless and honest man they knew. He found great joy in giving: his service to God and his wife came first; he played the part of Santa for nieces and nephews over the years; he never met a stranger in work or otherwise and would be the first to invite others into his home; he shared his home with many for holidays, vacations, weekends, summers, super bowls, weddings, and more; and some of his proudest moments were to share his finest Scotch whisky with a guest.
Lee is survived by his cherished wife Beth, daughters Claire and husband Walter Collier, Caleigh and husband Tom Rolfes, and son Kyle Geiser; sisters Joan and husband Steve Nielson, Jean and husband Dave Egeland, Sally and husband Todd McKinnon,brothers Don and wife Joan Geiser, John and wife Jeanie Geiser, Joe and wife Kathi Geiser, Kurt and wife Karen Geiser, Rock (Rocky) Geiser, brother-in-law Wayne Swedal, as well as many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents Ray and Bernice Geiser, sister Diane Swedal, and brother Raymond Geiser. Lee was a father and grandfather figure to many friends and their children.
