I am heartbroken to hear this news. I have waited to find the right words to write but there are no words and certainly none that feel adequate. Geoff you will always have my heart .. you were a precious little boy with a huge heart, so very kind hearted, and funny and sweet.. I think I remember you wanted to be a police officer then.. you loved your family so much, so respectful of your moms wishes and so kind to your sister Kathy. I had a secret hope that you would date and marry my jessye because I knew you would have been a great husband and father.. I have not seen you since you graduated high school but the memories I have of you are sweet. I miss you and I can only imagine the heartbreak of your passing has meant for your family. They love you so very much, My love and prayers are with them everyday.

We only had the pleasure of meeting Geoff a few times while visiting his Grandpa and Grandma Redding who loved him so very much. He was very pleasant and polite to us each time and his caring heart showed. What a terrible loss of a young man so vibrant and kind. Our hearts and prayers are with Lisa, his Mother, Donny and Gord, his maternal Grandparents and his sister.
Treasure the memories.

My memories of Geoff span over the past two decades. As a neighbour (across the street) I watched him grow with fascination and intrigue. From the moment I met him I was so impressed with his maturity and politeness(even as a young teen) his kindness and innate compassion. Geoff was a people person, he would always drop whatever he was doing to cross the road and engage in conversation with you. He would ask how I was doing and then he would ask how and what the kids were up to. There was such sincerity in his gesture to make you feel important and to let you know that he cared. I remember thinking to myself that I hoped that my young children would grow up to be as polite and comfortable when speaking with adults. There was something so unique and special about Geoff. I attributed this ability to relate to others as a reflection of the kind of Love that he had felt within his family. Dear Geoff, our family is richer for having known you and your presence will be forever in our hearts. Dear Lisa and family, Mother Love is the strongest of loves, always unconditional, always forever. Wishing you heart felt condolences, peace and Love. Much love from Paris Russell and family

I have been blessed to grow up across the street from Geoff. His ability to strike up a conversation with anyone passing by and make them feel cared for and appreciated was one of his many outstanding qualities. If I was walking down the street or simply getting into my car, Geoff wouldn’t hesitate to drop whatever he was doing to come and say hello with a big warm smile. That is something I will always treasure about him. His loving and generous spirit will continue to shine on San Juan Ave as he is remembered in the hearts of those who had the pleasure of knowing him. I feel beyond lucky to have known such a strong, kind, and gentle soul.

I’ll always remember growing up across the street from Geoff and our many conversations on the sidewalk between our homes. More recently, I was privileged enough to share a couple of meals with him during trips to Victoria. I remember his excitement when he purchased his black car, and talking about his new job with Transit. His sincere love for conversation, learning, and the Love he so clearly expressed on a daily basis will always stay with me. Geoff was and is a blessing to all those who had the honor of spending time with him, and I will always treasure our time together. Love is reflected in Love!
