OH MY GOD!! I’m so so stunned at this news!!!! Dr Sex was a truly top bloke. Met him when he arrived on 39Sqn out of his comfort zone was an understatement. Still the month in Gioia Del Colle was a blast. Even gave my fish a home when I moved away from Norwich.
Per Astra Ad Ardua
Rest well Dr!!
Ian 父 Lang thanks mate, he was absolutely the best. I know he was loved by all who came across him
Ian 父 Lang
Oh yes totally agree with that, I’m gutted
Geoff was a great bloke. Remember him well from 39. RIP mate.
Geoff, you were a superstar, you lifted my spirits more than I thought possible. The writing of the Oman diary made me cry with laughter. Our time around the pool for Xmas will last with me forever. RIP mate much love.
Sponge Beattie awesome photos mate, thanks for posting. Sara will laugh when she sees them.
Sponge Beattie some familiar reprobates on there!
R.I.P Buck Rogers was on my G course back in 1986 after he re traded from the motor boats.
Sad news 🙁 although I was too much of a smallie to witness his antics in person, I do remember him at JSOP when I was on my basic course, trying to persuade some of the AC lads on the basic course to take on the responsibility of the dance of the flaming arseholes, he was trying to pass on the legacy!! None of them seemed too keen for some reason…
Heidi Burton that’s when I met him, we were on our super phot conversion course. He was one of the best things on the course!
Heartbroken. Life is so cruel at times, but I am blessed to have had such a beautiful human being grace the pages of my storybook. Stand easy my friend. xxx
Andy Malthouse now that’s a photo to cherish
Geoff was a funny, kind and generous soul. My wife and I got to know him through Chris Hearn’s annual get togethers. He had time for everyone and will remembered by all. Very sad.
Andy Malthouse, these are great photos, thanks for sharing, Sara will love these
Sad, sad news. A true gentleman and a pleasure to have known him. RIP Geoff.
Thanks for all the great photos being shared, please keep them coming along with your anecdotes and funny stories
Matt Smith Hi Matt, it’s already been mentioned but I was at the bar with Dr Sex at Hearns wedding. The conversation with the barman/manager was ish as follows: Hey mate, is it OK if Faz here rides his Harley in through those patio doors there, he’ll me nice and gentle like. Barman/manager: Ah no, I’m sorry that can’t happen! Dr Sex and Faz look at each other and the immortal words “oh, really, fucking watch this, a minute later and the dance floor was a car(bike) park 🤣🤣🤣🥃Dr S
Tim Chandler hilarious mate, I’d vaguely heard about the Harley but not the details, thanks Tim, great to finally hear the story 😂😂
So, so sad, never failed to make me smile or, more usually, laugh out loud. It has been a while since I last saw him but he will not be forgotten. RIP Dr Sex, aka Geoff. Condolences to Sara and all the family.
Sad news, such a character. Helped Dave and myself
through our G course in 1986 with his experience and worldly knowledge 🥲
Sad news to hear, my condolences to his many friends and of course his family.
Rest in Peace Geoff. Only met once but a pleasure. Condolences to Sara and family. x
Sad news indeed! There will be many stories I’m sure and even though some can be shared after the watershed, some will remain in just the memories of those of that knew him! What a lovely man, kind in spirit but his sense of humour was just brilliant! Loved my time working with him…..RIP Per Ardua!
Jez Doak thanks for sending your anecdote. Despite the sadness of the news, I roared with laughter reading your memory of him.
A real celebration of what Geoff was all about and stood for.
Can’t wait to hear more stories
