    Bronwen and Mark

    Your father and I knew each other from our frequent locker-room chance encounters and chats at the Oak Bay Rec Centre.

    I thoroughly enjoyed our brief exchanges – Geoff was always courteous, positive and enthusiastic about the varied topics of the day. He always made you feel better for the time shared.

    But he was happiest when speaking of his children – he spoke of you often and clearly was very proud of you both.

    Like all who enjoyed his gentle and caring presence at the Centre, I will miss him and remember him fondly.

    My sincerest condolences,

  • Anne & Vic Bley

    Mark & Bronwen:

    I am extremely pleased to have met and built up a lasting friendship with Geoffrey at astronomy cafe over the past two years. We had much in common by both of us being widowers and the love of astronomy.
    I always placed the high chair at the corner of the table for Geoffrey to sit on at astronomy cafe and always enjoyed seeing him come into the room with his bright shining smile and wonderful uplifting words of continuous encouragement.Bronwen and Mark you had a wonderful father and please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your father”s death.

    Letter to Geoff

    Dear Geoff,
    Well, we weren’t quite ready for you to leave us.
    I don’t know any 84 year olds that still went to the gym regularly. And I don’t know any 84 year olds that played golf up until recently. ( You must have known they were closing of the clubhouse!) And I don’t know any 84 year olds that were so passionate about their
    I Pad and actually knew how to use it! Then there was your astronomy! It was almost too hard to keep up with you!
    I will miss sharing all those great shots of life in the sky. I will miss the pictures and updates of Ostara. And I will miss hearing how proud you were of Ted and Bronwen and their families. And it was so refreshing to hear how good they were to you.
    I will truly miss our lunches together. You were always so positive and always a gentleman!
    But most of all, I am sad that I missed telling you how much those lunches meant to me. I am sad that I missed telling you how much I treasured your loyalty and friendship.
    So Thank You Geoff for being that shining star in my universe while you were here with us. Now when I look up into the evening sky I know you will be the shining star up there in your new universe.
    Sincerely yours and hugs as always,

  • Linda

    I am so sorry for your loss, Bronwen and Mark. I never met your father but I can see your resemblance to him from the photo. I am sure you will have many happy family memories to treasure.

    It was with great sadness that we read of Mr. Jones’ passing. He was always such a sweet man when he came to the office.

    He will be missed by all
