WILLIAM (GEOFFREY) TURNER Passed away after a short illness on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Geoff was born on June 8, 1931 in Montreal. He was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Carole. Geoff will be sadly missed by Stephen and his wife, Karen and grandchildren, Micheal and Lauren; son, Richard and his wife, Barb and grandchildren, Andrew and Courtney; and son, Ken. He is survived by his sister, Eleanor and predeceased by sister, Joan. Geoff had a fulfilling career of over 35 years in management at Reynolds Aluminum in Montreal & Rexdale. Geoff will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors fostered during his early years at Lac Marois in the Laurentians and then at Walkers Lake outside of Huntsville where he would make annual visits. Geoff always had a positive attitude and no challenge was too great to overcome. Over the past number of years, Geoff faced numerous health issues that he focused on overcoming. The glass was always half full with Geoff. Geoff will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him, whether it was the Tim Hortons group or the many people he would meet in Bronte riding in his wheelchair. Geoff always loved a good party, make a toast to his memory at the appropriate time. The family would like to thank all the nurses, doctors and support staff at OTMH and Amica - Bronte Village who were there for him. In lieu of flowers, donations in Geoff's memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. A memorial service will be held at a later date due to Covid-19.

It was an absolute honour to spend time with Geoff over the years while I was still on staff at OTMH. He was, in every way, a true gentleman, and will be missed. A life well lived.
