Tedd L. Geetings, 69, of Honor, died Saturday, June 17, 2017 at Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital in Grand Rapids. Born March 18, 1948 in Benzie County, he was the son of Bernard and Patricia Geetings.
Tedd married his sweetheart, Shannon E. Nugent, on Dec. 12, 1970, and together they raised two children, Christopher and Tamala.
Tedd was employed for nearly 30 years with the Benzie County Road Commission. He also worked with Rieth Riley, Eastwood Excavating and Dommers and Molon Excavating.
He enjoyed the wonder and beauty of the Upper Peninsula; most trips required a stop at the Soo Locks and a day or two at Trout Lake. Closer to home, Tedd also looked forward the annual Beechraft family pig roast, a day spent with food and friends.
He is survived by his wife, Shannon; children, Christopher (Christina) Geetings and Tamala (Mark) Evans; grandchildren, Branson and Drew Fraly, Zoe Kenner, Zachary and Rylee Evans, Dalton Geetings, Amy Gard, Kayla Schooley and Michelle Oberthaler; great-granddaughter, Nova Kenner; siblings, Kim (Pat) Geetings, Patty (Jim) Ballard and Barney (Mary) Geetings; and many nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held at 1 p.m. Friday, June 23, at the Jowett Family Funeral Homes in Benzonia, with Bob Bodell officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will be in Inland Township Cemetery.
Arrangements are by Jowett Family Funeral Homes & Cremation Service.
