John joined Geib Funeral Home in September 2006. Before that, he spent four years with the Dover School District. John was also affiliated with the former Reeves Steel for 30 years, then with Candlelight Villas for fifteen years.
John’s role is to help families during funeral services, often remaining in the cemetery to ensure proper care of the grave, escorting family members, and greeting guests to visitations and receptions. John is also a key person in Geib’s evening transfer team, charged with responding to calls for care overnight together with a funeral director.
John has three daughters and eight grandchildren. Born and raised in Dover, he is a life-long member of St. Joseph Parish at Dover.
His hobbies include walking at New Towne Mall, spending time with his grandchildren and attending their school and sporting events. He also enjoys traveling and has been to Europe, Mexico, many Caribbean islands, the Bahamas and toured the Hawaiian islands.
John says, “I can tell the Geib Family & Staff truly care about those who work alongside them as well as the families we serve.” Although death often represents a time of sadness, it is also a time for families to be brought together and John plays a part in providing comfort and service to these families.
