Another Beemaster family loss
« on: December 30, 2022, 11:03:01 am »
Geoff Whitelaw has died.  He was a member on here for many years and a personal friend to a lot of us.  I met him at one of the Bud events and he came to our home and stayed with us after as he was on his way to a balls tournament in the bay area before heading home to Australia.  He was quite the character and even though I knew this was coming I am sad that I will never pick up the phone and hear his 'g'day Kathy'! again.

Thank you for posting this Kathy. I am sorry to hear we have lost him. I remember a GREAT joke he told here in the humor section a few short years ago. "Only in Oz ! !" was one of the funniest jokes I have ever heard. Geoff will be missed.

A fine gentleman that will be missed. I, too, have met him and talked several times on the phone. Enjoyed every minute of it.

Below you will 'hear' Bud1, the narrator/cameraman recording Beemaster1 as Bud welcomed him to Mississippi at the airport proceeding a BUD EVENT, with Geoff sneaking up from behind all the way from Australia. lol  :grin: These folks were good friends to each other, as well as many here at Beemaster.  Bud1 and Geoff will be missed by many.
