Book of Remembrance of
Geoff was a fondly liked and respected friend and colleague to many people at Sheffield Hallam University.
His sad passing will leave behind a huge hole, both on a personal and professional level.
On a personal level Geoff was a man who valued truth, honesty, integrity, and fairness. He also had the sharpest and driest sense of humour, with a razor-sharp wit.
He was a private person, but he would share stories about his wife Jeanine and son Robert, both of whom he loved dearly and was hugely proud of.
On a professional level Geoff was one of the most knowledgeable and dedicated people you could hope to meet. His knowledge of technology and Building Management Systems was unrivalled as was his dedication to Sheffield Hallam. He was a true “unsung hero”. Even when he won the “Unsung Hero” Award at the FD Awards, he was too modest to attend the event.
This book of remembrance is an opportunity for friends and colleagues to offer their condolences to Geoff’s family. It is also an opportunity to share stories that people fondly remember.
