Red Geistman exemplified all that is good about life. Just to have known him and spent time with him will forever be a cherished memory. Red was a man, a man that I looked up to and respected. He had his father's work ethic and his mother's soul. There will never be another like him. I look forward to meeting up with him and our dear friend, Ron Hicks, in the next world. My thoughts and prayers are with his beloved ones, Will and Amy. God bless.
