  • My sincerest condolences to your entire family. Geoff was such a great guy. Many great hours spent with him at Brian Alicie’s comic bookstore. He will be greatly missed by so many. You are all in my prayers.

  • You’ll be missed my friend. We had lots of good times and made some great memories. Enjoy spending the rest of time browsing the great cosmic comic shop with Stan Lee

  • Many nights gaming, the multitude of stories we created with dice, paper and friends. You brought people together and were never one to judge. You will be missed by many.

    My heart goes out to those you left behind, they bear the burden of your passing, but will always remember you in life. Enjoy the great beyond my friend.

  • I am sorry to hear of your family’s loss. Geoff was really quick-witted and wanted to be a comic book artist. He had a strong work ethic, and wanted to work so badly that he wouldn’t go on disability or get any kind of assistance. He was forever trying to pay medical bills. He was strong and steadfast in wanting to be helpful, and he was a great friend.

  • To Kay and your family
    My heart goes out to all of you. Reflecting on the countless times our boys spent together at each other’s houses all through their childhood. It was always a pleasure having Geoff in our home. My mind’s eye still sees those little blonde headed boys.
    Praying that our Lord places His arms of comfort around you at this time.
