Craig Geppert, 63, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Wednesday, February 6, 2013. Funeral services will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, February 9, 2013 at Dunn's Funeral Home. Burial will follow at Sunnyhill Cemetery in Grimes.

Craig was born in Elkhart, Iowa on September 3, 1949 to Byron and Charlene Geppert. He moved to Des Moines when he was 10 years old. Craig graduated from Lincoln High School in 1967. He worked at the Des Moines Register for 43 years as a mailer, machinist and most recently a Maintenance Supervisor.

Craig spent 46 years married to his high school sweetheart, and they loved spending time together. Together they had three wonderful children and enjoyed spending time with them and their families. He was thankful for every moment he spent with his wife, kids and grandkids and playing cards with his best friend, Father Bob. Craig enjoyed going to his grandchildren's sporting and school events. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing with his son and grandson. Craig knew no strangers and would lend a helping hand to anyone.

Craig was preceded in death by his parents. Left to honor his memory are his loving wife Julie; his children, Sandi (Jim) Carpenter, Shelley (Jeff) Pinegar, and Craig (Kristin) Geppert; his grandchildren, Kenny, Samantha, and Zach Cutkomp, Madison, Jordan, and Ella Geppert; great-grandchildren Carter and Peyton Franklin; brothers, David (Bev) Geppert and Kent (Lori) Geppert; mother and father-in-law, Don and Jennie Miller; many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, extended family, and many others that loved him very much.

A visitation will be held Friday evening from 4-7 p.m. at Dunn's Funeral Home on Grand Avenue. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be directed to the family for a charity to be determined at a later date.
