Andrew R. Geier, 47, Wausau, died Wednesday December 30, 2020.
He was born November 28, 1973, in Wausau, son of Ronald and Jody (Mickevich) Geier.
“Andy” was his nickname. He was Autistic and mentally disabled. Andy was baptized as an infant at Trinity Lutheran Church in Wausau. As a boy, Andy lived at home in Pike Lake, with his parents and brother and sister. His brother, Casey, would give him rides on the back of the ATV 4-wheeler, which he liked. Andy attended many special education classes through the years, in many local schools. Andy went to Wisconsin Badger Camp, near Prairie du Chien, a couple of summers. He had a “3-wheel bike” to ride. He lived for some years in Madison, Chippewa Falls, and Oshkosh. In Wausau, at the last group home he lived at, a staff person named Reva, cooked Andy delicious meals which he enjoyed at “Tharen’s House.” Andy liked watching T.V. and listening to country music on his boombox in his bedroom, and sometimes taking a walk. Before the pandemic, Andy enjoyed going for car rides with his parents, and getting a chocolate shake. Andy was a special person. We will miss him greatly. Maybe in Heaven, Andy will be able to talk. He had many cousins.
Besides his parents, Andrew is survived by a brother, Casey (Amy Long) Geier, Wittenberg, Holly Geier, Wausau and maternal grandmother, Joy Heideman, Merrill. He was preceded in death by maternal grandfather, Lyle Mickevich and paternal grandparents, Cliff and Helen Geier.
