Geoffrey David Birkenshaw December 20, 1988 – December 6, 2017
Geoff was there. For those who truly knew him, Geoff was there. When it needed to be done, Geoff was there. When something bad happened, Geoff was there. When support was needed, Geoff was there. When family gathered, Geoff was there.
Geoffrey David Birkenshaw worked hard, struggled a lot, put himself last and touched our lives. He dreamed, he built, and he strived. His struggles took their toll and now when we close our eyes wondering how we will carry on without him, Geoff will be there. He will encourage us, support us and tell us it will be okay. Geoff will be there.
