Geary Lee Ward

October 31, 1949 — February 12, 2024


Geary Lee Ward, a proud veteran and dedicated aircraft mechanic, passed away at the age of 74 on Monday, February 12, 2024. Born in Palatka, Florida, on October 31, 1949, Geary was the beloved son of the late R.P. and Gladys Lane Ward.

Geary served his country with honor in the United States Air Force, achieving the rank of Master Sergeant before retiring. Following his military career, Geary continued to serve his country as an Aircraft Mechanic at Robins Air Force Base for several years.

In his leisure time, Geary had a passion for hunting and was a member of the Buckmasters. In his younger years, he enjoyed fishing. Described as fun-loving and the best kind of quirky, Geary had a quiet soul and a brilliant mind, excelling at games like Trivial Pursuit. He had a particular fondness for Mexican food, was known for making his own “Soggy French Fries,” and enjoyed sipping on sweet tea.

Geary Lee Ward will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all who had the privilege of knowing him.
