Community support for public safety officers 'overwhelming'

In an abundance of ways, Grand Valley residents paid their respects Thursday to fallen Mesa County Sheriff’s Deputy Derek Geer, after the 40-year-old was taken off life support late Wednesday night. Geer was shot late Monday morning, but he was kept alive on life support so his organs could be donated.
“It is with tremendous sadness that I announce the passing of Deputy Derek Geer,” said a message from Mesa County Sheriff Matt Lewis. “Deputy Geer has been removed from life support after completing a last selfless act of organ donation.”
