Lynn Mervin Geyer, 69, of rural Humboldt, Nebraska was born on May 5, 1953, in Humboldt, Nebraska. His parents, Mervin Robert and Wilma Helen (Bohling) Geyer raised their family in the country north of Humboldt where Lynn was the oldest of three siblings. He was the ornery, protective big brother of Jana and Beth and always shared fond memories of his sisters, parents and grandparents.
Lynn attended Bratton Union Consolidated School until it closed and then graduated from Southeast Consolidated High School in Stella. During his school age years, Lynn helped with milking at the family farm and helped surrounding farmers. After graduation, he had periods of time living in Lincoln and Sidney, Nebraska. Lynn had many friends that would always call to see what the nights plan was. He shared memories of cruising around, camping, hiking and hunting with his buddies. Seeing the need for help on the farm, Lynn moved back and later made his home in his grandparent's house just south of where he grew up. He would go on to raise beans, hay, corn, cattle and pigs along with everything in between. Lynn had two children, Lucas and Lacee, and was a good dad. He would play like a kid with them, teach them about work ethic and plant their faith at an early age. He loved to teach them about the outdoors, from hunting, fishing and general respect for nature.
Lynn loved the mountains and talked often about all the places he got to see during his life. He absolutely loved planning a vacation and would always have a written schedule of what was going to take place on the trip. The Crown Victoria would be cleaned and packed full for the family adventures.
Lynn went to be with his Lord and Savior on Tuesday, May 31, 2022. He is preceded in death by his grandparents, father Mervin Geyer and many aunts and uncles.
Lynn is survived by his loving children: Lucas Geyer of Lincoln, NE; Lacee Noa and her husband Adam of rural Nemaha, NE; mother Wilma Geyer of Humboldt, NE; sisters: Jana Anderson and fiancé Dave Wheeler of Stella, NE; Beth Griffin and her husband Deon of Topeka, KS; Uncles: Rich Plager of rural Humboldt, NE; Ike Alberts of Auburn, NE; and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
