Steven Raymond Geiger, age 72, passed away August 25, 2021, at his home in Anacortes, WA with his loving family by his side.
Steven was born to Warren and Imogene Geiger in Burlington, Washington November 30, 1948. He grew up and graduated in Sedro-Woolley, WA. Steven joined the Navy and served in Vietnam. At a young age, the owner of the Sedro-Woolley bakery let Steven bake with him and from then he was hooked. He went on to cooking and baking school at the Seattle Art Institute to follow his passion. He worked at numerous restaurants including the Space Needle, Teddy’s on Roosevelt, World Trade Center Seattle and the Vance Hotel, just to name a few.
Steven was fortunate to meet the love of his life, Cyndi F Walley, at a very young age. She was his girl from then on. They were married September 5, 1969, at Trinity United Presbyterian Church in Sedro-Woolley. They spent the next 42 years loving each other with everything they had and welcomed their son, Anthony in 1971. Steven and Cyndi lived in Seattle, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace for 30 years before moving to their custom-built home in Anacortes in 2004.
Steven loved his career as a chef along with enjoying traveling, camping and time with his wife and family. Steven and Cyndi went everywhere together. Their favorite place was at the JW Marriott in Honolulu, Hawaii enjoying pu pu platters on the beach. Steven loved his grandchildren and always loved joking around and cooking for them. As he used to say, never trust a skinny cook.
Steven is survived by his son, Anthony Geiger (Jamie Bruce) of Anacortes; grandchildren, Alexis, Isabella and Kamryn; loving sister, Lamarr Coler of Mill Creek; and multiple longtime dear friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Warren and Imogene Geiger; in-laws, Donald “Spud” and Betty Walley; brother-in-law, Bruce Coler; and his wife, Cyndi. They have been separated for 10 long years, but now are reunited to spend an eternity loving each other and watching over their family in the arms of the Lord.
