    Geoff was our adored neighbour and great friend.
    We will miss you so much … telling endless yarns sitting around a fire with a can of xxxx.
    Everyone captivated and smiles all round.
    Thanks for all the joy and help you’ve given to my family over the years.

    So so sad 😥
    It has been an absolute privilege/pleasure to travel with Geoff – to have him visit us in Queensland but most of all to have a true blue friend.
    We will miss the anticipation of when we will next see you but treasure many wonderful memories.
    Cheers Mick, Bernie, Luke, Adam, Paul & John
    R.I.P. Geoff

    Geoff, you were one of a kind bloke.
    Was always a pleasure to be a friend to you and Lorraine, I am sorry I wasn’t able to attend this celebration today but you will always be in my thoughts.
    The times I spent with you and Lorraine in Minyip will be cherished and when I go to the Sheep Hills Silos at sunset I will look to the sky and smile at the brightest star.
    Thanks mate, enjoy fishing 🎣 with Greg.
