Obituary of Clinton E. Geer


ILION – Mr. Clinton E. Geer, affectionately known to us as “Clint,” passed away at the age of 71, on Thursday, March 14, 2019, in Ilion, NY. It is a comfort to us to know that Clint is at peace and he received wonderful care at The Grand in Ilion, where the staff treated him and his loved ones like family.


He was born on December 30, 1947, in Ilion, a son of the late Walter E. “Gene” and Virginia A. (Parker) Geer. He went to Ballston Spa schools, followed by Utica Free Academy, finally graduating with Ilion High School ‘Class of 1967.’ He went on to attend Herkimer County Community College.


His marriage to Nancy E. Martorano took place September 2, 1978, at Ilion United Methodist Church. He was a veteran of the United States Army, serving from 1968-1970, including a year in Vietnam. He was a true American Patriot.


He was last employed with House of Good Shepherd, New Hartford, as a custodian. He and his wife, Nancy enjoyed faithfully attending Mohawk Reformed Church together and Clint participated within the Men’s Bible Study group as well as a singer in the church choir. He excelled at bowling, enjoyed racing, was a classic car enthusiast and even was an avid biker, riding both bicycles and motorcycles alike! He was ever so family oriented and Clint’s dedication to his wife and children was unending.


He will be dearly missed and is survived by his beloved family, his wife, of over 40 years, Nancy; his daughters, Bridget Burt and Katherine Tisi and her fiancé, Matthew Heath; his son – in – law, Robert Burt; his grandson, Theo Burt; his sisters and brothers – in – law, Sheila Harp and husband, David, and Kay Woodrick and husband, Ed; several nieces, nephews, cousins; and a very special cousin who was like a brother, Ronald Dawley.


He was predeceased by his two brothers, Daniel and Earl.


Funeral services will be held Tuesday, March 19, 2019, at 1:00 PM at the Mohawk Reformed Church, with Pastor Brian Engle, officiating, assisted by Rev. Greg Harp (Clint’s nephew), followed by a luncheon for family and friends, downstairs.
