May 6, 1939 – March 27, 2023
at the age of 83 years:
A celebration of Geoff’s life will be held Sunday, June 18, 2023 @ 2PM on the farm property by the bridge Geoff built.
It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to Geoff; husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, who passed away at home on March 27th, at the age of 83 years. He will be remembered for his strong work ethic, his stoic strength of character and the impish way he would smile when he just told a great joke.
Geoff was born May 6th, 1939 in Aldershot, England and immigrated to Canada after finishing his degree in Forestry from the University of Edinburgh. After a brief stint in New Brunswick and Vancouver he moved to the BC Interior where he spent most of his working life building beautiful houses including the unique Strawbale homes.
In his latter years, his love of nature, trees, animals and gardens blossomed, helping create the wonderful farm enjoyed by so many.
Geoff will be missed by his wife, Barbara; his daughters Jenny and Thea and their families; his stepsons, Kevin, Brian and Steven and their families; his three brothers, Robert, Hugh and Charles in the UK; many other family and friends and all the farm animals.
Family and Friends whose lives have been touched by Geoff are invited to come celebrate his life, to reminisce and share.
A Celebration of Geoff’s Life will be held Sunday, June 18, 2023 @ 2PM on the farm property by the bridge Geoff built.
