Billy Wayne Geyer, of Seminole OK, passed away on 27 April 2021.
He was preceded in death by his father, Billy Joe Geyer. He is survived by his children, Riley, Amy, Diana, Andrea, and Daniel, and his grandchildren, Nora, Maya, Alex, Emma, Katelyn, Karlie, Isabella, Tia, Leia, River, and Aspen. He is also survived by his mother Oleta McGill, sister, Cleta Carpenter, two brothers, Eldon and Johnny Geyer, and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
Early in his life, Billy developed a passion for ranching and farming. As a young child, he milked cows and hauled hay. As an adult, he worked in the oilfield and followed the industry from Oklahoma to Louisiana where he did offshore drilling. Already considered to be a highly skilled welder, he went on to attend Tulsa Welding School to perfect his trade and obtain welding certification. He continued to weld in the oilfield until going to work at Tinker Air Force Base as a certified welder where he worked for 17 years until his retirement. After retirement, Billy was able to devote more time to the things he was passionate about - his family, ranching, and farming.
Billy lived life to the fullest. He was well-known for his sense of humor and he enjoyed being around people. He also enjoyed the great outdoors and fishing and hunting were two of his favorite pastimes.
