He attended Pleasantville High School in Pleasantville, N.Y., where he participated in student government, varsity basketball, dramatics, and band. At Princeton Geof won numerals in freshman track and a secondary letter in varsity track. He was active in the Triangle Club freshman year and the band. He joined Cannon Club and his IAA activities were football, basketball, and softball. Geof majored in history and wrote his senior thesis on “The Atlantic Declaration and its Impact on the World Today.” His senior-year roommates were Sydney Prince and Richard Batt.
He met the love of his life, Heidi, in Frankfurt, Germany, at a dance when he was serving with the Army band, playing the French horn. Together they traveled throughout Europe during an 11-year courtship and their 50 years of marriage.
Geof’s career began by working with Katz, an advertising company, as creative director selling AM/FM radio time. It was followed by 30 years with Shearson-Lehman as a financial adviser. As daughter Stephanie put it, “He was a numbers wonk.” Finally, he was in retail sales with Omaha State.
Geof is survived by his wife, Heidi; daughters Stephanie and Kimberlee; and grandchildren Grace, Kenny, and Kyler. The class extends its heartfelt condolences to the family.
