Chris passed away peacefully at Algonquin Grace in Huntsville on October 13th, 2020 at the age of 75 due to a very rare form of cancer. Beloved husband of Gladdie, and much loved father of Sarah (Jeremy) Geer and Craig (Shona). Very proud and loving grandad to Chase, Jack, and Lucas Geer, and to Claire and William Thomas. Remembered lovingly by his sister Patricia, and predeceased by brother Gerald, father Frederick, and mother Winnifred.
Chris had many talents and passions. He had a successful career in computers as a systems analyst for over 30 years. He was also a skilled craftsman who loved to build many things, from pine furniture to the family speedboat named the TNT. Together with Gladdie, he built a beautiful cottage which has been their home for over 20 years, and had many adventures travelling the world, including the untamed Antarctica. Chris was a former director and chairperson on the board of the Fairvern Nursing Home, and he greatly admired the dedication of the staff.
The family wishes to thank Dr. M. Stephenson, Dr. R. Kirkpatrick, and the medical teams at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre, Sunnybrook Hospital, the Toronto General Hospital, the Huntsville Hospital, and Hospice Huntsville for their outstanding care and support.
Cremation has taken place and a private family gathering to honour Chris will be held at a later date. Messages of condolence can be left at www.billingsleyfuneralhome.com. In memory of Chris, a donation to the Fairvern Nursing Home Huntsville, or to Hospice Huntsville would be appreciated.
Chris, we will always cherish the
Twinkle in your eyes.
