COOKE, Geoffrey
Geoff passed away peacefully on Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at the age of 85. He was born December 19, 1933 in Speeton, Yorkshire, England. He was predeceased by father Harry, mother Cissie and brother Peter. Geoff is survived by his wife Margaret; son Neil (Donna) and grandchildren Matthew, Chelsea and Nicole of Regina, Saskatchewan; daughter Kathryn (Tony) and grandchildren Erica and Joel of Ardrossan, Alberta; and daughter Jill (Greg) and grandchildren Ella and Abigail of Malmo Sweden.
Dad grew up in Bridlington England, met and married the love of his life Margaret and moved to Curry Rivel England where Neil and Kate were born. Dad and family immigrated to Canada in 1968 where he taught in Neilburg. The family then moved to Kerrobert, where he had accepted a position as a principal and where Jill was born. In 1977, they moved to Biggar where Geoff was also principal at the elementary school. He then retired and continued to be a part of the Biggar community for many years.
Dad liked to golf, bowl and watch the Riders and Jays on TV usually grumbling when they weren’t winning or playing well, but he truly loved watching them. Many who knew him described him as a kind, dignified gentleman. To us he was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who loved us unconditionally. He was truly a wonderfully sweet man.
Dad courageously battled cancer for 25 years, first with prostate cancer and for the last 10 years bone metastasis that slowed him down but didn’t prevent him from leading an active independent life. Our family would like to thank his friends from St. Paul’s Anglican Church, residents of Central Park Place in Biggar, Dr. Mueller and the amazing staff at the Biggar Hospital as well as numerous other friends for their help and friendship throughout the years. Special thanks to the Pasqua Palliative care unit in Regina for their exceptional care in his final days.
A family service will be held at a later date as Dad wished.
