Chevy Chase Village ‘saddened’ at shooting death of former manager

The historic Maryland community of Chevy Chase Village is “saddened” to hear of the shooting death of its former manager last week.

The staff and managers of the community said in a statement Monday that they “extend our condolences and sincerest sympathies” to the family, friends and colleagues of Geoffrey Biddle, 66, who police say was shot to death in his Bethesda home Thursday.

Biddle was village manager from 2003 through 2009, the statement said; he began work at Chevy Chase Village in 1994.

Biddle was CEO of Payment Solutions, of Rockville. In a statement Monday, President David Sacramo called Biddle “an exceedingly kind and thoughtful person. … Extremely selfless in professional and personal decisions, he truly had other people’s best interests at heart, above his own.”

Troy O’Connor, who works at PSI, said Biddle was “incredibly dedicated to the success of the company and fought as hard for our personal lives as our professional lives.”

“All PSI employees feel Geoff will always be sorely missed and impossible to replace,” the company added.

The Montgomery County police found Biddle shot dead in his house on Windsor Lane at about 11:30 a.m. June 24. His co-workers had asked them to check on him when he didn’t show up for work.

Anyone with more information is being asked to call the police at 240-773-5070 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 866-411-TIPS (8477). You can also submit a tip online or via the P3 Tips app.
