In loving memory...
There is no nice way to write this post so it will be what it is. Most of you who read my blog already know the tragedy that struck our family recently but for those who don't, I am saddened to inform you all that our dear Geordon, my husband and partner, my son's father and everyone's friend passed away suddenly here at home on February 11th. Geordon was just shy of his 47th birthday by 3 weeks. Geordon lived his life exactly the way he wanted to. He never let anyone or anything stand in his way. Although he has passed away and at such a young age, I can assure you all as his life partner that he lived a very full life. His was a life of adventure and a constant pursuit of happiness. Geordon had many goals he wished to accomplish and I am proud that at such a young age, he had already accomplished them all! There are not many alive that can claim that. Our family is saddened and stunned by this sudden loss but we are all managing pretty well. As his health over the past 5 years has been fairly poor, we made it our goal to always ensure that whatever Geordon wanted to do - we did! It is for that very reason that we are all left with no regrets or unfinished business with Geordon. We are left with only happy memories and the best stories. Those who had the privilege of sharing their life with Geordon know that to know him was to love him. Never has there been anyone else quite like him. He was an amazing person who could find humour in any situation - even when everyone else found things to be less than amusing, Geordon would be in hysterics with laughter. I think that is what we will all miss more than anything else - his laughter. Geordon and I become obsessed with our goats quite quickly and our herd became his greatest pride. It is for him that we will somehow find the strength to carry on with our plans. We may be one important man short here but we all know in our hearts that he is with us always.
We love you Geordon and miss you more than we ever thought possible.
XOXO, until we meet again. ~ Angee

Angee - what a beautiful tribute to a beautiful man. I loved watching him with the goats, seeing the great pictures (like the gorgeous one here!) and clearly they brought him so much joy. I also saw how much you two were a 'unit'.....as you say - he's still so very much with you all. xoxo

Angee, I know that Geordon's legacy is very much alive in Sky River Meadows. You and your family have been truly blessed with an amazing, genuine and honest man. His body may not be with you, however, his life and spirit will always be with you.

Angee, I want to tell you that Geordon loved you with all his heart. You made him happy and the two of you together, brought so much joy to him. I loved him with all my heart and I will miss him forever. He was my son, your husband, and Daniel's father. We did not have him near long enough

Angie, I wish to pass on my sincerest and deepest sympathy I just read the obituary in the paper - first smiling at the pic of Geordie with the goat then total shock to see what page this was on. I worked with Geordie in 2011 and he helped me daily, after a difficult transition to Muskoka, with his supreme humor and force of character..never letting a bad day get in the way. I was touched to read your blog and my thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. Sincerely Kim

Angie. I just heard. I'm in shock. Honey, I'm so sorry. Geordie was a good man. I don't think any one man in Muskoka took me under their wing and mentored me through some tough times like he did. I adored his infectious laughter, his "fuck the world if they don't like it" attitude...much of which, I am better at doing today...thanks to that man. He did adore you!! He still is. I'm so sorry, hon. I regret I didn't get to see him the last time I visited the shop while he was still there. I always thought there'd be another time. I pray for you and the family and know you will find the strength in every corner you turn to continue your dream. My deepest condolences. I just can't believe it. so sorry, honey. <3
Oh my goodness, I just happened upon this, and am so saddened to hear of Geordie's passing. I had no idea, and wouldn't have believed it but for the picture...he looks exactly the same as the last time I saw him, nearly 20 years ago. I was briefly married to his brother in the 90's and spent a lot of time with all three of them in Huntsville. Geordie was unique, he was a really great guy and I loved his outlook on life, his laugh, and his chili. I'm so so sorry for your loss. He was definitely one of the good guys, and I know he will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

A year already. I think about you every day. I miss you, Geordie. We all do. Wherever you are now, I hope they have goats for you to build playpens for!

I'm sure many people's thoughts are of Geordie today. One full year without you hardly dulls the pain. You will continue to be in our hearts.

Today is your birthday Geordon. I love you and miss you so much.

It's been 3 years Geordie, still not a day passes that I don't think of you. The pain is still there and always will be, but it is in how I have learned to cope with it.

You are still in my heart
