Charles Stephen "Chuck" Geiger was born April 5, 1961, at US Naval Air Station at Roosevelt Roads in Puerto Rico. He passed away on June 3, 2017, at his residence in Milton, FL after a lengthy illness. He was outgoing, friendly, fun to be around and easily made friends - never meeting a stranger, evident by his many friends who join in with Chuck's family in mourning in his passing. During his working days, he was instrumental in the construction of schools, businesses and residential housing working with many contractors in various places. From all accounts, he was a hard and dependable worker and always gave it his all in whatever he was doing. He had a loving and giving heart and would give anything even when he didn't have it to spare if he knew you needed it. He'd also have cookouts for friends in the neighborhood. He knew how to grill and fry! He also loved children and animals. There was usually a dog in his life. Chuck had many interests and enjoyed the outdoors - fishing, swimming, and pitching horseshoes. He also loved sports, especially football and auto races and spent a lot of time watching them on television. He was an avid fan of Florida State University and Louisiana State University football.

Due to his father's serving in the Navy, in his earlier years, he lived in Millington, TN, Milton, FL, Mayport, FL and Palm Valley, FL where in his teens he was a member of the Junior Volunteer Fire Department before moving back to Milton which he considered to be his hometown. He attended Milton High School.
