Anchor Point resident Donald John Geisen died Monday, Oct. 16, 2006, at his home after a battle with lung cancer. He was 73.

A private service will be held in his honor at a later date.

Mr. Geisen was born Nov. 30, 1932, in Crown Point, Ind. He attended Purdue University and received his bachelor of arts degree in business.

Mr. Geisen was called to duty and served in the U.S. Army starting Feb. 17, 1957, and was honorably discharged Jan. 21, 1958. He was an insurance broker and owned the Geisen Insurance Brokers in Jolliet, Ill. from 1966 to 1980. He then moved to San Diego and opened Geisen Insurance Brokers. He retired in 2002.

“Dad had a passion for fly-fishing and the wild outdoors. After fishing the whole world over, he found his bit of heaven in Anchor Point. His thrill at reeling in a big fish was only matched by his thrill at negotiating a large business deal. He accomplished both with equal skill and joy. All these things were overshadowed by his love for his family. You will be missed, Dad,” his family said.

He enjoyed fly-fishing, camping, travel, wood working and home construction,

He is survived by his sons, Glen Raymond Geisen of Springboro, Ohio, Gregory Paul Geisen of San Diego, and Grant Christopher Geisen of Redondo Beach, Calif.

Arrangements were made by Peninsula Memorial Chapel in Kenai.
