It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Geoffrey John Almas at his home on Sunday, January 16th, 2022, in his 47th year.
He will be dearly missed by his two daughters who were his pride and joy, Chloe & Shelby.
Geoff was the cherished son of Jack & Janet Almas, and grandson of Velma Almas.
He will be remembered by his sister Karen (John) Dorgelo, brother Tyson (Maryann) Almas, his niece and nephews, and cherished by lifelong friends, Trevor Dunn and Johnny Roy.
Geoff and his Dad own Almas Garage and Towing where he worked all his life from a young age, then becoming a mechanic, and partnering with his Dad. Growing up he enjoyed spending time with his friends, playing hockey, baseball and snowmobiling. For the last 10 years, he took up the Almas ‘passion’ for racing, following his late Grandpa Bev, and his Dad to become the crew chief, mechanic, bank and biggest cheerleader for his daughters’ love of drag racing. They spent many great weekends with family and friends at the Grand Bend Motorplex. He greatly loved his family, friends and race family and was always willing to help out and if he didn’t know how he’d ‘Figure it Out’. He also had a love of music and often spent the long drives back and forth to the track jamming with his girls. Geoff’s memory and heart live on in his daughters – ‘Cherish the memories as we embrace the pain and burn it as fuel for our journey’ – Unknown
A small private Celebration of Geoff’s Life will be held at the Ferguson Funeral Home in Meaford on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022.
