Geoff passed away in his home in Gibbons, just as he would have wished. He started his life in Manchester, England where he loved to play soccer and cricket, and was a Boys’ Brigade Officer. This is where Geoff met Chris and they started their journey together as a family. Geoff brought his young family to Canada, a place of opportunities, and after some years in London, Ontario, they arrived in Gibbons, Alberta. Geoff made it his mission to contribute to this great town. On top of his busy work and family life, he was on the Gibbons Volunteer Fire Department, a long-time Town Councillor, a founding member of Gibbons Minor Soccer, just to mention a few of his endeavors. Most importantly, Geoff made memories with everyone he met and took pride in his family, friends, and community.


Geoff leaves behind his loving wife of 56 years, Chris, along with his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He leaves behind two children, Susan (Ed) and David (Victoria); seven grandchildren, Rebecca, Brendyn, Samantha, Jamie, Aiden, Kieran, and Harlow; and two great-grandchildren, Kai and Liam.
