Wayne Maurice Geye - February 28, 1954 - May 14, 2024

Departed: 05/14/2024 (Walworth)
Obituary Preview: Wayne Geye was born February 28, 1954 in South Dakota to Donald and Irene Geye. He passed away on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at Geneva Lake Manor.
Wayne spent most of his childhood in the Wooddale area on the south side of Geneva Lake. He was an amazing swimmer, loved to water ski and definitely didn’t do any illegal spearfishing. In the winter, he would ice fish and sail in his ice boat. He was a smiley, friendly soul that had a passion for carpentry and home improvements. He could fix or enhance anything. Good luck to you if you ever had to try and undo something he built. He consumed coffee at an expert level and was also elite at drinking milk straight from the carton. He could carry a tune and also play songs on his recorder or various other auxiliary percussion instruments he acquired throughout his life. Wayne loved puzzles of any kind and would regularly provide intricate puzzles to his children and grandchildren to keep their minds sharp. He really admired craftsmanship and could appreciate the time and skill required for beautifully finished products. Wayne worked hard for his family and loved spending time in his garage working on projects. Wayne spent the better part of 30 years making caramel corn for all his family and friends during the holiday season and his son is now carrying on this tradition. Wayne was a good person in this world and he will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
Wayne is survived by his children Cheston (Gretchen Witowich) Geye, Hunter (Krissie Odegard-Geye) Geye, Erin Geye, and Travis (Amy Simms) Geye, and their mother Susan; grandchildren Carson, Seamus, George, Rowan, Aria, Archer, Cameran, and Evan; brother Paul (Robyn) Geye; sisters Nancy (Pat) Hensley and Carolyn (Jaime) Guttierez; his best friend and partner Sheryl Englebrecht; as well as several nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Life will be planned for a later date. For more information call the funeral home at 262-275-2171

David F. Williams - July 17, 1959 - May 08, 2024

Departed: 05/08/2024 (Walworth)
Obituary Preview: When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. On May 8th 2024, David Fred Williams peacefully passed away at the age of 64 surrounded by his wife and children after a short battle with cancer. David was born on July 17th, 1959 in Rockford, IL. He is preceded in death by his Father Fred “Mickey” Williams, his Mother Ruth Williams, his brother Fred “Duffy” Williams and his niece Kayla Williams. He is survived by his wife Barbara Williams, their four children, Chad (Tanya) Williams, April (Marques) Williams, Emily (Ryan) Harris, and Franklin (Sara) Williams, their adored grand-children, Hailey Williams, Gavin Williams, Emirya Harris, and Joleen Harris, and siblings Deborah (Michael) Herbert, Colleen (Steve) Gilbreath, Bonnie (Jeffrey) Sundet, and Timothy Williams.
David found joy in many things, gardening, bonfires, projects in the garage, and spending time with his family whom he loved more than anything. Maybe most of all, David cherished his grandchildren, from building playhouses from scratch, to letting them ride bikes in the house, there aren’t many adventures their Papa wouldn’t pursue for them. He was an avid collector of all items, and you would be hard-pressed to find a problem he couldn’t fix. David will be held in our hearts forever and his memory will be carried on in all that he instilled in his family, including to love fiercely, work hard, and for goodness sake, take pictures! Create beautiful moments with the people you love, let the summer sunshine sink into your skin, take the time to listen to the crickets, and remember to look up sometimes to check out the stars, all with a cold beer in your hand of course.
Be Careful, Love You.
A visitation to honor the life of David will be held on Saturday, May 18th 2024 from 10am-12pm at Toynton Funeral Home, 328 Kenosha Street, Walworth Wi, 53184.
