He was born June 25, 1968, in Wauseon, Ohio, the son of Randy and Sharlene Krieger Geer. His mother, Sharlene (Ken) Honegger, survives, residing in Bluffton. His father, Randy, survives, residing in South Whitley.
Chad was a graduate of Whitko High School in South Whitley. He attended Purdue University, where he was a member of the Farm House Fraternity and earned a bachelor’s degree in agricultural economics. He also completed the curriculum at the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin.
Chad was a very active and vital member of the Logansport and Cass County community, serving within multiple organizations in an effort to give back and better the community in which his family lived.
He served and held leadership positions with several organizations, including the Logansport Memorial Hospital Foundation, the Cass County Family Y, the Logansport Rotary Club, Tipton Masonic Lodge #33, the United Way of Cass County, First United Methodist Church, and countless others.
Chad developed a passion of agriculture at a young age on his family farm and continued to pursue his passion of farming throughout his adult life, where he was often quoted as saying “nature is my church.” Chad also enjoyed traveling and making memories with his family and friends.
But most of all, Chad was known as a devoted and compassionate family man, an aspect of his life he valued above all else.

Together they dearly loved their daughters, Rachel (Luke) Zinsmaster of Fishers and Abby Geer of Syracuse, N.Y., and grandsons Lincoln Geer Zinsmaster and Cole Zinsmaster.
