Sincere Condolences to Betty, family and of course Lucy on the passing of Geoff. So shocked to hear the passing of a true gentlemen. Will miss our short chats and walks up the park as we let the Fur Kidz off the leash. RIP Geoff.

Hi everyone visiting this page,
I made pop a tribute video as I didn’t feel I could get the words out. A great story of mine of Pop was when he bought his first computer.

I was mucking around on his computer and fiddled with the screen saver playing a prank on Pop. The screen saver said: THIS COMPUTER WILL SELF DESTRUCT IN FIVE SECONDS.. the first time Pop saw this after I’d left he called out to Betty to not come into sun room, went and got his bike helmet and safety glasses with welders gloves and attempted to disconnect the power from his computer while bracing himself for the self destruction. I remember feeling a bit sheepish when I could here Mum on the phone explaining to him it’s just a screen saver and his computer wasn’t going to explode.

My favourite memory of Pop is when I was throwing a tennis ball against the wall at his house in Clarke st. Pop poked his head out and said ok throw it here. We threw the tennis ball back and fourth with out dropping it for two hours while chatting for the first time about his time in the “natios”. It was here we became more mates than grandpa and grandson and I felt in awe of his story’s and ability to connect, chat and make me feel equal with him as we threw the tennis ball back and fourth. No one knew about that time we had as it was only me and him home.

I made pop a video of some of the footage we found pooping through video tapes. He loved capturing his moments on his old cam corder and was maybe the start of my own creativity with filming and editing.

While we went through old footage I found one of Pop teaching me how to row a boat.. perhaps this was the subconscious seed that started me on my career as a seafarer now too.

Love you mate and will always hold onto my memories of you until I see you again.

If I only had five minutes the day you passed away,
I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say.

I never got to tell you how much you mean to me
Or that you were the best dad, better than any man could be.

The last time I talked to you,
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I love you
and kept you on the phone.

If I only had five minutes
the morning you passed away,
I'd give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I'd tell you that I don't think I could live without you,
not even for awhile.
I'd kiss your cheek and take your hand and tell you it's okay to go
And tell you that I'll miss you
more than you'll ever know.

But you were gone so quickly.
The last few Breaths you'd take.
Before you even knew it, 
you were standing at heaven's gate.
Now God has called upon you.
It's time to get your wings,
To leave this life behind you,
And enjoy all of heaven's beautiful things.
So wait for me in heaven, Dad.
Don't let me come alone.
The day the angels come for me,
Please be there to bring me home.

They say that not all heros wear capes…. mine didn’t. To me "hero" is a word that describes wisdom, kindness, bravery and acceptance. My Hero was truly an admirable person who not only inspired me, but motivated me to be a better version of myself. My hero was you, Pop.

When I was a little girl you had titanium hands. Titanium hands that would bravely reach under squatty the chicken to get her eggs. I was in awe of you when you wouldn’t even flinch as she drew blood. You had super balance. Super balance that would hold me steady on the handlebars of your bike as we peddled around singing abba dabba together.

As I grew older you had the patience of a saint. Patience that I would turn out to be a girly girl, not a tom boy obsessed with horses. You definitely helped this along when you bought me that beautiful dress when I turned 13, remember Pop, that frilly one.

Throughout my life you always supported me. Like when you came to the fine dining winery where I worked. Much to your horror after a few courses of not a lot on a plate you were served one teaspoon of chocolate mousse. Let’s just say we all know you would have preferred a coupon deal at hungry jacks on the lounge room floor in front of the telly.

You were such a loving man, you loved your family more than anything. Pop I am forever grateful to you for giving us grandies the most incredible childhood memories. For being the most incredible person, for being such a huge part of my life, and for leaving behind your legacy of family connectedness and closeness. The only thing that could compare to your love for your family, was your love for my nan. I promise pop that I will look after her.

Today you inspire me. My Hero, my pop. It is clear that you meant so much to so many. I want you to know that we will never stop cherishing you.
