Trim Ideas Owner
Dies February 12, 2019
Kenneth Wayne Geisler, 67, known to many as Ken, was born on July 9, 1951. He fell asleep in death early Tuesday morning, Feb. 12 after battling cancer for many months.
Born and raised in Owensville, Mo., he was one of 11 brothers and sisters that grew up in a tiny home with very little means. He had various odd jobs including traveling with the carnival for some time. In 1984, he moved to Summerville and settled down to build a life with his wife of 40 years, Tessa Kathleen Geisler. Ken was known in the community as a respected businessman. He founded Trim Ideas, a local sign and tint business that has offices in Summerville and Rome.
He was baptized as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses in 1974. He and his family attended the Summerville Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. His strong faith and belief in the bible and bible principles influenced the way he lived his life and raised his boys, Matthew and Micah. For 25 years he worked as a volunteer to help build Kingdom Halls around Georgia and in other countries, including the local Kingdom Hall. Ken Geisler remained a faithful servant of Jehovah God up until his last breath. Ken’s friends and family knew him to be dependable, kin and lighthearted. He always had a joke or comment to make that was always just so “Ken.” When he wasn’t busy participating in the door to door bible educational work, he could be found spending time with family and dear friends. Many people knew Ken by his karaoke persona, “Hank” who could be found sometimes at local restaurants or at friends’ houses crooning the night away.
His parents, Elmer and Georgia Geisler; two brothers, Eugene Geisler and Paul Geisler, and two sisters, Hazel Geisler and Bonnie Geisler died earlier.
Surviving are his wife, Tessa Kathleen Geisler; two sons, Matthew (Jamy) Geisler and Micah (Alina) Geisler; four grandchildren, Evan, Audrey, Annabelle and Madeline; five brothers, Arlie (Sue) Geisler, John Geisler, Ronnie Geisler, Lonnie (Darlene) Geisler, Rick Geisler; a sister, Shirley Geisler and a host of nieces and nephews and many spiritual brothers and sisters.
