Harry Geisinger, one of the nicest guys at the Capital - Funeral on Saturday

Harry Geisinger

The picture above may not show it but Representative Harry Geisinger was a really nice guy whom I had the pleasure of chatting with several times.  In 1971 he introduced the first bill for the creation of the City of Dunwoody and I am told that several years later in 1974 he introduced youth soccer as a sport in Georgia.  He was an innovative and tenacious legislator who will be deeply missed under the gold dome.

Reviewing old videos, I found a few doozies which shows this man's legacy but it is the one above that struck the deepest cord with me.  Above Harry describes two bills both of which attempt to correct wrongs from many years ago.  The first bill would affect the entire Atlanta metro area if not two States and the second bill corrects an injustice that on the surface only affects one individual but the matter is much deeper and affects the entire state.   It's only 4 minutes long - give it watch.

Visitation will be held on Friday evening, May 8th from 6:00 – 8:00 PM at Northside Chapel. The funeral will also be Northside Chapel on Saturday, May 9th at 2:00 PM.

Northside Chapel is located at: 12050 Crabapple Road, Roswell, GA 30075.
