Geron (2004) was a special treasure to Northside; quiet yet a leader, respected and admired. A star student-athlete at Northside and the 1st Monarch to earn a football scholarship deciding to attend Fayetteville State University where he also excelled both on the field, classroom and community.
Tragically, Geron lost his life in a weather related hydro-plane car accident in December 2008; one day before his college graduation and a promising future as a US Federal Air Marshal.
We were honored that he came back to NHS one month before his death to be our Honorary Captain at the 100th game played in Monarch Stadium.
Please understand that the funeral home did such an amazing job describing Geron's life with their words and pictures that we want to share them with you!
