Mr. Geary Alan Sosebee, of Concord, a devoted and protective husband, loving father and grandfather, passed away June 20, 2012, shortly after 5 p.m. Geary was most proud of his family, his service to the country as a Marine, and his accomplishments as a top sales consultant with Ford Motor Company. He was well-loved in the community and highly respected. Geary was a generous, sensitive and compassionate man to all who were fortunate enough to truly know him. He counseled and enriched the lives of numerous individuals.
Geary’s belief in God and faith sustained him through his most difficult trials and tribulations. His daily prayer was to be reunited with his daughters, Holly and Amy, and he asked the Lord to provide guidance and protection for his family. Memories of fishing with his daughters gave him comfort and hope for a future reunion.
Funeral services will be held Sunday at 2 p.m. at Ford Stewart Funeral Home, in Jonesboro, with the Rev. Dennis Bellamy officiating. Interment will be near his mother at Sherwood Memorial Park. The family will receive visitors at the funeral home Saturday from 5 p.m., to 8 p.m.
