    Hi Guys

    On Facebook, I learned today that Geoffrey Charman (Geoff) has died. Somehow, I still hope it's a mistake and that it may be heard again, but it's probably not a mistake. What scares me the most is that I accidentally clicked on his Facebook page to see if he had finished his last bust. It's a shock for me. I didn't know Geoff well, only here via the forum and via Facebook. Even so, I am very sorry for his passing. I hope he's in a better place. Rest in Peace Geoff.

    Hi Guys

    It hardly seems right at liking all the comments but I thank you from his wife for your thoughts

    Geoff's funeral is next Tuesday the 7th July at 1:45pm , I will post a "In memory " thread on that day

    Obviously due to current C19 issue numbers few will be able to go so :

    Can I ask you all to remember Geoff on that day

    Very sad news indeed.
    I enjoyed his regular w.i.p. posts, and watching his skills improve with each new bust.
    I had a very pleasant chat with him and his wife at Bugle Call last year.
    As has already been stated, he will be greatly missed.
    Condolences to his wife and family.
    R.I.P. Geoff.

    I'm shocked & so sorry to read of Geoff's passing. I always followed his projects with interest, & although I never met him personally I corresponded with him via PM & found him a charming guy to chat with, & very personable.
    My sincerest condolences to Geoff's family, & I'll be thinking of him on the day of his funeral as mentioned above by Nap.
    Rest In Peace Geoff, God bless.
