David, passed away on Thursday 30th March 2023 aged 87.



Grandad would have been 88 today, I will always remember the duck jokes he made and how he always made Edmund and I laugh when we both desperately needed it when i was 12 and Edmund was 13.

Holidays were fun, especially the isle of wight !
and the infamous trip to france to ski in January 2016

Geoff and Carolyn helped me start my business in 1991. I shadowed Geoff for 3 months to learn the ropes and he very quickly taught me the most valuable lesson, that in the world of sales, people buy people. I also got to visit what must have been the vast majority of pubs in West Sussex.
We remained great friends ever since and had lots of fun over all the years. I will miss him enormously.
RIP Geoff x

Geoff and I shared many happy lunches over the years. He was a very sweet man. We both shared a common sense of humour. The world is a sadder place without him.



Sending condolences to all of Geoff’s family and friends at this sad time. Geoff was a quick witted, cheeky gentleman with such a kind heart. We laughed endlessly together, often at me albeit. He loved his sports, especially shouting at the National Welsh rugby team. I lost count the amount of times he had tried to explain the rules of cricket to me. I am very thankful of the time we spent together and I will think of him often. Rest in peace Geoff x

My fondest memories of Geoff were the yearly walking holidays, along with Carolyn. We stayed in youth hostels, many a story to tell with these, b&bs and holiday homes. We wanted more comfort as we got older. We visited beautiful areas of the UK, Cathedrals, churches and stately homes, many of which left Geoff in wonder and awe. Carolyn and I would often play tricks on him which he took in great spirit.
However, he was never far from his beloved cricket. A small transistor radio was glued to his ear and the test cricket commentary accompanied us everywhere. He point blank refused the offer of ear phones. Geoff was kind, generous, patient, in a perfect partnership with Carolyn, and he will be greatly missed.



Sweet Caroline was Geoffs favourite song and whenever I played it, he pointed to his Caroline and dried the tears with a kerchief.
A thorough gentleman with stories that spotted every conversation. A lover of music, especially Baila and Andre Rieu.
Enjoyed books and a good movie. .
Geoff he was so polite and calm and cheerful at all times. It was a pleasure to be with him and enjoy a great evening.
Pray comfort for the family. God bless you all. You were blessed with a lovely father.

Dad had the gift of sociability. A wonderful person, who everyone warmed to, no ego, kind, witty, extremely likeable and charming. He was also very cheeky and loved making people laugh, loved playing the fool, but very affectionate and truly devoted to our mother Carolyn, the love of his life. I miss him so much, his personality undimmed by illness, his sporting enthusiasm shining through, in particular his love of Welsh rugby. I remember his very occasional cooking too - he learnt one recipe at a cookery course at West Dean college - pork with mushrooms and onions cooked in foil - that he proudly presented to us as teenagers. He was a much loved cricket player for Lavant for many years too, and we would often go as a family for a day out, mum making the team sandwiches. A wonderful wonderful man leaving such lovely memories.

Geoff (Joffrey, Harris, and other nicknames that should not be made public) is my best friend. I've known him for nearly 49 years and we enjoyed many, many times playing cricket, drinking, watching rugby, drinking, scoffing countless Indian and Sri Lanka meals, as well as travelling to foreign parts in the company of wives and friends (oh yes, and did I mention drinking?). He is a real one-off: gentle, funny, loyal, generous, loving, and he enriched my life beyond measure. I will miss him of course, but our shared memories will never die. Bye, my old pal, Terry (& Alison) x



Geoff was a kind caring loving family man with a great sense of humour often telling fun stories. Geoff enjoyed watching his national side of Wales play rugby with pride, popping to his favourite coffee shop for a chat or cheeky glass of beer.
Geoff was a delight to have known and will be very sadly missed by everyone that knew him.
Geoff has grown his beautiful angel wings and flown up to heaven to be reunited with is beloved wife (name).
When we look up at the night sky you will be the brightest star in the sky forever in our hearts.
You will be very sadly missed.
Love Tess ✨⭐️xxx
