Suddenly on Saturday January 13, 2018, at the Juravinski Cancer Centre.
Geoff, in his 78th year, loving husband of 55 years to Antje (nee Schnabel).
Dear father of Derek (Christine), and Jennifer (Rob Malkovich). Opa will be sadly missed by Caitlin, Sinead, and Benjamin. Survived by sisters Roz Kerr, Connie Harrigan, and Mary Dawson (Ed). Fondly remembered by sister in law Gundi and husband Peter Schloen, and many nieces and nephews.
Geoff graduated from the University of Toronto, class of 1963. His career was spent at Blatchford as a product and sales manager. He was generous with his time, being the local “tool” man and home computer whiz. He will be missed for many things not the least of which his dry sense of humour, his sage advice and unconditional love.
Geoff remained remarkably optimistic throughout his illness, maintaining his usual positive attitude, love of fine food and wine, theatre and time with both family and friends.
Cremation has taken place. A private family service is being held in accordance with Geoff’s wishes, knowing that he celebrated life each and every day.
In his memory, do a random act of kindness, or please consider a donation to the Juravinski Cancer Centre.
