Brian A Geiser
New Holstein, WI

Brian A. Geiser, age 45, of New Holstein passed away peacefully, surrounded by family, Sunday, December 20, 2020.  He was born February 12, 1975, son of John and Mary (Bartel) Geiser.

Brian graduated with high honors from Chilton High School in 1993.  He attended UW Platteville pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering.  Brian took an internship position with Appleton Paper before he began working at Tecumseh Products.  His love of learning led him back to school where he earned an Associate Degree in Mechanical Design Technology.  He excelled at computers, mathematics, and engineering.  

Despite the challenges Brian faced throughout his life, he maintained a clever and quick sense of humor with a unique laugh that was contagious.  Things he really enjoyed were tennis, bowling, playing games, listening to music, visiting around a camp fire, playing a challenging game of ping pong, watching movies, and working on his computers.  He also liked spending time with his nieces and nephews.  Brian would lend his time and strength to help with home and farm projects.  He occasionally volunteered at Ledge View Nature Center, and was especially good at growing plants at home.  Brian liked surprising people with heartfelt cards or gifts on special occasions.  

Survivors include his special friend, Mary Mann; parents, John and Mary Geiser; his siblings: Daniel (Estela) Geiser, Glenn (Kim) Geiser, Joelle Geiser (special friend, Joseph), Renee (Christopher) Hovanic, Laura Geiser, Sarah (Benjamin) Knier; and his nieces & nephews: José, Monica, Molly, Xavier, Declan & Mila.  He is further survived by aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives and friends.  

Brian was preceded in death by his infant sister, Janelle Geiser; paternal grandparents: Werner and Lorraine (Kolbe) Geiser; and maternal grandparents: Anton and Romilda (Meyers) Bartel.

The family would like to send a special thank you to Glenn and Kim Geiser for their loving care, compassion, and time they devoted to making sure Brian’s last days were comfortable.  Their generosity allowed Brian to be at home, surrounded by loved ones.

Thank you to Calumet County Human Services for their many years of helping Brian face the challenges of mental illness, which he did with grace and dignity.  Thank you also to the Hospice teams for their care and support during the last weeks of Brian’s struggle with pancreatic cancer.

In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy, a private family service will take place at the Wieting Family Funeral Home in Chilton with burial to follow at St. Charles Catholic Cemetery in Charlesburg.

So sorry for your loss. Brian was a great person and always had a smile on his face whenever you saw him.

My deepest sympathy to Brian's family and friends. I had the good fortune to get to know Brian over the past 10 years or so and very much enjoyed his thoughtful questions and thought provoking conversations. He also had a great sense of humor. His time on earth was too short, but he will not be forgotten.
