March 11, 1927 - February 3, 2013
Geoff was born in England and received his early education there. He showed special interest and aptitude for automotives and achieved his licence as a Certified Engineering Technologist. Geoff and Mary were married on December 24, 1955 in England. Shortly thereafter they migrated to Canada. Geoff's first job was at Barber Industries. He then renewed his interest in the car business and eventually developed Select Auto together with his good friend John Chorny. Geoff and Mary had an active social life in Calgary. They enjoyed many outings with Westwinds Outdoor Club hiking in the mountains in the National Parks and Kananaskis Country. Because of Geoff's interest in cars, Geoff and Mary became members of Calgary Sports Car Club, where Geoff would proudly display his favourite car, the Austin Healy. At Geoff's request, there was no Funeral Service. He was cremated. His ashes will be interred in Davisburg Cemetery, a rural location east of DeWinton, where Geoff can continue to look west to the Rockies. To celebrate Geoff's life, his friends and business associates are invited to a wine and cheese reception at Riverstone Condos, 318 - 26 Avenue S.W. on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
