Geoff was a unique individual, a young man with an old soul. His sense of humor, tinged with irony always alleviated any gloom, doom or anger in the room. He was a cherished friend and will be greatly missed.

You were my patient, unlike no other. Someone else wrote about your “slightly off” humor, which is one aspect of you I loved. You cracked me up every visit. I was so happy you got a large chunk of time away from the hospital after your new set. I pray that you got most things on your bucket list ticked off during that time. We will miss you down here, but we take comfort in knowing you are no longer suffering.

Geoffrey, you & your sense of humor will be greatly missed. Working weekends with you was alway a blast. I’ll never forget playing the Grateful Dead through the intercom system with you. Safe travels my friend!

Geoffrey's sense of humor was sometimes misunderstood but always welcome. He was such a trustworthy and reliable person, easy to chat and a stress buster, his outgoing personality will definitely be missed.
