I received the following message and I pass it on to members with great sadness.
“It may be some time since The Grange Camera Club heard from my father, Geoff, who died last week. He was Secretary some time ago. I thought some of you may still remember him so I just wanted you to know.
Service at Bushbury Crematorium, retiring to his home in Brewood for friends and family afterwards. I am sure some of you may consider yourselves friends.
Died peacefully on April 15, 2015.
Funeral service at Bushbury Crematorium, on Wednesday 29 April, 4pm. Family flowers only please. Donations to RNLI and Wolverhampton Sea Cadets, c/o Roy Quinton Funeral Directors, 83 Westcroft Av, Wolverhampton, WV10 8LN

Although it is some time since we saw Geoff I am sure that members will remember Geoff’s happy disposition and the passion he had for analogue photography. His slides and in-depth knowledge of Telfords churches and canals left a lasting impression on many of our group. It was his enthusiasm that made me realise how important it is for us to document our surroundings for future generations.
