Dennis Lee Geyer (Denny), 77, passed away on April 6, 2023 in Sarasota, Florida.

Denny was born April 2, 1946 in South Bend, Indiana, to Dr. Eugene L. Geyer and Lucile H. Geyer. He was a graduate of South Bend Central High School and attended Ball State University. Denny was the beloved husband to Lynda L. Geyer for over 37 years until his passing. He is preceded in death by his parents, Lucile Geyer in 2014 and Eugene Geyer in 1992.

Denny grew up in South Bend, Indiana and spent many summers in Cassopolis, Michigan at Shavehead Lake with his parents and his older brother Tom, and on the waterfront staff at Camp Eberhart on Corey Lake. He had a lifelong love of swimming and always enjoyed being on a lake or the ocean, and eventually moved to the gulf coast of Florida where he met his wife Lynda. Professionally he worked primarily in sales and the insurance industry. He became an avid sailor and gained his captain's license, chartering boats in his free time. Denny loved to read, and had a high curiosity for learning. He will be remembered for his love of sailing, his good humor, and his love of life and the family and friends around him.

Denny is survived by his wife, Lynda Geyer of Nokomis, FL; Brother, Thomas (Kathy) Geyer; Daughter, Jessica (Matt) Zentz, and grandchildren Ethan, Serena, and Bridget Zentz.
