City High alumnus John Geerdes’ visitation will be held Thursday, September 26, from 4-8pm at the Terry Trueblood Recreation Area.

According to news outlets in British Columbia, John Geerdes died in a bus accident earlier this month.  He was a freshman at the University of Victoria.

“[John] was an amazing, kind, intelligent, talented, special human being, he was beloved by students and staff at City High,” Principal John Bacon said.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Iowa Soccer Club Financial Assistance Fund or the John Geerdes Memorial Swim Lessons Fund (in care of MidWestOne Bank).
