Jeffrey Allen “Ponytail” Geiser, 60, died suddenly at his home in Anchor Point on Aug. 11, 2014. Memorial services were held Aug. 15 and 16, 2014, at his North Fork riverside home.
Jeff was born Aug. 27, 1953, in Marin County, Calif., to Opal and Fredricco Geiser. He grew up in the deserts of Baja and Arizona racing dune buggies. He then became a professional racer and skilled mechanic. After moving to Alaska in his 20s, he resorted to living off the land. Fishing, hunting or snowshoeing were just some of the things Jeff could do. He also brought home a moose for his daughter almost every year.
If there was anything that Jeff loved the most, it was his children. No matter what he did, Jeff and those who knew him understood it and accepted it. He was a very smart, talented and humorous man and he could light up a room with his smile.
Jeff was preceded in death by his mother and father; brothers, David and Jim; brother-in-law, Clayton Richardson; mother-in-law, Noella Harford; and father-in-law, Robert Harford.
He is survived by his daughters, Mary Webb of Homer and Rachael McGuire of Chula Vista, Calif.; son, Tanner Geiser of Kenai; daughters-in-law, Jami Mumey and Rhonda McCall; and many friends, including Cheryl Richardson, Ron and Marlene Peterson, Abe and Kiki Abrahamson, Bob and Patty Russel, John and Sheryl Howe, and John Chapple, all of Homer.
Arrangements were by Peninsula Memorial Chapel.
