Chris Georgeson

Chris Georgeson, 64, of Lawrence, KS passed Monday, April 27, 2020 at St. Luke’s Hospice House in Kansas City, MO.

Chris was born August 17, 1955 in Lawrence, KS; the first son of Bob and Greta (Osthoff) Georgeson. He was a life-long Lawrence resident.

Chris is remembered as an intelligent, witty and generous man who was passionate about politics, sports and reading books. He was a student of history, dispenser of trivia and invested more than fifteen years with the same gaming clan. Chris was always ready to offer his opinion and an eye-roll on just about any topic. He was dearly loved and enjoyed a special relationship with his nieces and nephews and will be profoundly missed.

Survivors include his siblings; Karen Burk (Bob) of Montrose, CO and Curt Georgeson of Lawrence, KS; his nieces and nephews (who knew him as Uncle Tio) Chelsie Riebel (Brad) of Iola, KS, Jon Georgeson of Topeka, KS, Regina Georgeson of Topeka, KS, and Joey Georgeson of Lawrence, KS; and extended family and close friends.
Chris was preceded in death by his parents, Greta and Bob, and his nephew Michael Georgeson.

There will be a private graveside ceremony with a celebration of life to be announced at a later date.

The family suggests memorials in his name to Douglas County Community Foundation and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary, 120 W. 13th Street, Lawrence, KS 66044.

    Karen and Curt and Families,

    I’m so sorry to hear about Chris. I didn’t know him as well as I knew the two of you but your wonderful family was a big part of my childhood. Chris and his long hair and that Alfa Romeo. I’ll always remember that.

    Chris, you will be missed. I remember the fun times we spent at grandma’s and when we visited your parents house. I was your bratty little cousin, but I always thought you were so cool, with your long hair and mysterious personality. You lived life your way, surrounded by love. You will be missed, kiss our heavenly family for me, I’ll see you on the other side. Peace be with you and yours. Love your cousin, Cindy

    Dear Karen and Curt and families,
    So sorry to learn of Chris’ passing. I remember the time Sr. Judith drove me to his home in Lawrence. We were so happy to see each other all grown up! It had been many years since we had spent time at the Osthoff farm…and now it has been that many years and more. Hard to fathom what life holds for each of us. Hugs

    Dear Karen and Curt and families,
    So sorry to hear of Chris’s passing. I know it has been many years since we have seen or had any contact with all of you (back to when our parents were still alive and Sister Judith being in that area) and I send prayers and deepest sympathy to all of you at this time.

    Karen and Curt, so sorry to hear of Chris’ passing. I have so many fond memories of Chris and all of us growing up together–we had a great neighborhood and Chris was central to that! We’ll be thinking of you and will see you when there’s a Celebration of his Life.

    To the Georgeson family sorry to hear of your loss. I am a member of the online gaming group that Chris ran (T.B.D) my online name is ptshark , along with gaming with Chris, the one thing I liked more than anything else was when we would have our late night/ early morning chats. He was a wonderful man and this Canadian gamer will miss him. Take care.

    To the family, so sorry to hear of Chris passing . He was a great guy back in the day at high school. He will be missed

  18. Ann Berry on May 1, 2020 at 11:29 pm

    Karen, Curt and all–
    I’m so sorry about Chris. Am thinking of all of you and of good times, long gone now, in Lenora. Will never forget Hardy telling the tale of the house that became Carl and Etta Lou’s…people in cities think little villages in flyover country are dull. Little do they know. Anyway, my heart is with you.
