Geof was a great son-in-law. I liked him from the first time my daughter, Regina, brought him down to Denver for my "approval. We talked on the phone regularly and had a lot of fun with our Denver Broncos/Green Bay Packers rivalry. I will miss him dearly. My heartfelt prayers go out to all the family, friends, and loved ones who will also miss him dearly. Val Gutierrez
