Larry Wayne Geffert

June 14, 1950 ~ December 1, 2020 (age 70)


Larry Wayne Geffert, 70, of Yorktown, Texas, entered the arms of his Savior Tuesday, December 1, 2020. He was born June 14, 1950, in Cuero, Texas to the late Emil and Allie (Buendel) Geffert. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Ray Geffert.

He married Martha Kerlick on October 31, 1970, and recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary cherishing all their great memories over the years.

Larry is survived by his wife Martha, son Clinton Geffert (Tanya) of Cedar Falls, IA, daughter LeAnn Jander (Dwight) of Victoria, TX, and son Cody Geffert (Megan) of Yorktown, TX, along with eight grandchildren: Coleman Geffert, Caleb Geffert, Clayton Geffert, Caden Jander, Cason Jander, Ella Jander, Layne Geffert and Allie Geffert, brother Roger (Debbie) Geffert of Yorktown, TX, sister Shirley (Darryl) Mueller, of Nordheim, TX.

He was also blessed to be survived by extended family members Bernice Warwas Geffert, David (Donna) Warwas and Debbie (Steven) Kneese.

Larry was a hard worker and enjoyed providing for his family. He was always ready to help others and many leaned on his expertise in what seemed like everything. He knew how to get the job done and always took care of everything for everyone. He held various jobs in the oilfield, was an independent welder, pipefitter, ranch manager, and was employed by Brown & Root Industrial Services at Union Carbide in Seadrift. He later worked for Nitro Downhole in Nordheim, TX, until retiring in 2016.

He loved being a husband to his best friend, Martha, and had a passion for hunting and his Brangus cattle. Larry loved being a provider and took pride in always having what others needed. But most of all, he loved being “PoPee” to his grandchildren. He was so proud of each and every one of them while sharing his love in his special way.

Pallbearers are grandsons Coleman, Caleb, Clayton and Layne Geffert and Caden and Cason Jander. Honorary pallbearers are Billy Paul, Arvid Koopmann and granddaughters Ella Jander and Allie Geffert.
