I think I can honestly say that I've never known another human being that was as generally well liked as Geoff. It didn't matter if you only saw him a few times a year or every day, he liked everyone equally and treated you that way. Billy was right, only the good die young. You are missed, my friend. ❤️

Geoff was a very special and truly unique person. He was thoughtful, kind, curious and witty. Geoff always knew how to brighten your day and worked at making others smile. I will always remember the joy he brought to others and the incredible love and dedication he showed to Amanda. Rest In Peace dear friend.

The few times I had the pleasure of meeting Geoff, I was struck by his quick wit, humor and vast knowledge on so many topics! He was a joy to spend time with! I know he will be deeply missed by many. I also remember one day standing in my front yard and seeing down the street, what I assumed to be a kid, in a baseball cap, flying a remote control plane, so excited and loving every minute of it... well that was Geoff.... a kid at heart! Made me smile! Godspeed Geoff!

There are so many memories of Geoff... all bring a smile to my face... as that’s what Geoff did best... make people smile and laugh ( even at themselves). Geoff had a few funny stories he told about me... but I didn’t care to be the topic of his story as the way he told it even in my presence made me laugh every time.

He had a heart of gold... my deepest and most sincere condolences to Amanda and his family. My love and prayers go out to you all. Love is something that never ends... hold tight to the love you shared with him.

I will always cherish the time I spent picking out a puppy from the Kohl Target litter. Geoff and Amanda were such welcoming hosts. I loved following along in all your adventures. The world is a little less bright now that his smiling face is gone but never forgotten.

I will always remember how kind Geoff was when I played flyball with DogGoneFast. He helped me teach flyball at Sir Walter Raleigh Dog Training Club. We were all still learning and the class should have been a disaster but Geoff made it fun. I remember both of you (and your pups) very fondly.

Geoff, remember when I left my insulin pump in your lane? ...and then when Gracie got all nervous with the video cameras in her face and stopped mid run to poop ON the box, in your lane, on tv? 🤣

Miss you my friend!
