Funeral services will be held at Canyon View Vineyard Church, located at 736 24 1/2 Road, on Monday, February 15th at 1:00 PM.
On behalf of Deputy Geer's family and the Mesa County Sheriff's Office, words can not adequately express our gratitude for the outpouring of support and compassion from our community during this most difficult time. The support we have and continue to receive are allowing us to grieve and begin to heal.
Funeral Arrangements For Deputy Derek Geer
Mesa County, Colo -- Even as we await the process of Deputy Geer's organs being harvested for donation, it's necessary that we begin planning the logistics of his memorial services. While it seems contrary to move forward with these plans while Derek is still on life support, we know that it's inevitable that life sustaining measures will soon cease, and the celebration of his life will follow. We anticipate a large turnout of support to honor Derek, and therefore want to provide this information to the public as soon as possible.
Services for Deputy Geer will be held at Canyon View Vineyard Church, located at 736 24 1/2 Road, on Monday, February 15, at 1:00 pm. Interment will follow at the Orchard Mesa Municipal Cemetery at 2620 Legacy Way.
More specific details regarding the funeral processional route and specific plans for media will follow as they unfold. Our intention is to be as transparent as we can be as we move forward. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
