Geoff was a big part of the Vancouver music scene, as front man of The Slickjacks, he had also played bass and was a founding member of The Matthew Good band for a number of years.
Geoff was a talented and helpful guy, he headed the Cobalt renovation crew when nobody had a clue where to begin, and worked countless hours getting it open in time for Wendy13’s 06/06/06 plan. Many of us remember Geoff for his corndog sense of humor, and for how genuinely real he was- an all around great guy. He will be greatly missed.
Geoff is survived by his widow, Lisafurr Lloyd, who had also tragically lost her Mother to cancer 2 weeks earlier.
