After a valiant battle with melanoma, Geoff passed away peacefully at home. He was born in Bell Island, Newfoundland, and grew up in Sept-Îles, Québec. He was predeceased by his parents Arnold and Jean Bennett.
He is survived by his loving wife, Marj (nee Hagan), his children Angela (Mizuki Inoue), Danielle (Masaki Ida) and his brothers Larry and Max, along with many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
The family would like to thank Dr. Paul Hacker, Dr. Michael Ong, Jennifer RN, Suzann RN, Regina, Wendy, Jen, the staff at General Hospital Medical Oncology Unit and the many nurses and PSW who supported us over the last 18 months. Without you, it would not have been possible.
As requested there will be no funeral service. There will be a Celebration of Life on August 26, 2018 from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at Pinecrest Remembrance Services, 2500 Baseline Rd, Ottawa.
Geoff loved to play guitar and watch hockey, so if you have a t-shirt from your favourite band or a hockey jersey please wear it to honour his love of music and hockey.
Memorial donations may be made to VETS CANADA, Guitar for Vets or The Ottawa Senators Foundation.
