Remembering Gene Geer 1919-2020
- Registered Professional Engineer
- Registered Professional Land Surveyor
Gene M. Geer was a graduate of Texas A&M University, Class of 1942. He was a practicing civil engineer and land surveyor since then, having worked during World War II in aviation design, then subsequently in various engineering projects such as overpasses, bridges, roads, shopping centers, schools and many others. His biggest engineering project was being in charge of construction of the grain elevators and barge teminals at the Port of New Orleans which remained in operation until the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
His most challenging survey was a 4600 acre plantation whose eastern boundary was the Mississippi River and which was virtually a jungle at the time. Gene is also registered as a professional land surveyor in the state of Louisiana. The survey with the longest natural boundary was the B.B. Owens Trust Land Survey that had 2 miles along the East Fork of the Trinity River. That tract of land was 4700 acres. But Gene also surveys small tracts, the smallest being one in Princeton - 6 feet wide and 120 feet long - so that someone could increase the size of their lot.
Gene was a Collin County native whose family were pioneers to this region. He knew every square inch of Collin and Grayson Counties and was very familiar with Dallas, Terrant, Hunt and Fannin Counties. Licensed in Texas & Louisiana.
He founded Geer Surveying and Engineering in 1968 and he will be dearly missed.
