But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

 

Joe H Geter, Sr. was born on January 12, 1945, in Natchitoches, Louisiana.  He took his final flight carried in the arms of his Lord, on Sunday, October 29, 2023, at the age of 78. Joe grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana and graduated from Woodlawn High School.  His passion for playing football led to many victories for "the Knights." Joe was an avid LSU fan and faithfully followed the men and women's teams throughout the years.

 

He attended Northwestern State University, and then began a career with the Ford Motor Credit for many years.

 

Joe relocated his home base to Ruston, Louisiana, during the mid-1980s.  Shortly thereafter, he gained employment with Joe Mallard Ford, as the Finance and Insurance Manager.  He later transitioned to Jay Mallard Ford, in Jonesboro, Louisiana, during his remaining years of employment until retirement in February 2020. Joe fulfilled his lifelong dream of living in Colorado and moved to Colorado Springs in the fall of 2020.

Geter Sr; mother, Lena Desadier Geter; brother, James C Geter Jr (Jimmy); sisters, Jean Kent, Donna Geter and Carol Doiron; nieces, Vanessa Kent Buck and Corinne Kent Weeks.
