Vale Geoffrey Weekes

GeoffWeekes001Unfortunately, Jeff Weeks died late last week.
Jeff was a stalwart of the Association for many years. In particular, he oversaw the activities of our Stream Watch initiative for over ten years. This involved liaison with Sydney Water, rostering around ten volunteers and undertaking faecal coliform testing for our two sites at Blue Gum Creek and Swaines Creek.
Both Geoff and his wife Jo, were active on our local community for a very long time. Jo is well known for the contribution she made to the Girl Guides over many years. Geoff and Jo met while they were working together.
Geoff&JoWeekes001Geoff was born in Goulburn but spent most of his life in Sydney. He came to Sydney to go to Teachers College where he also played Rugby League. However, he did not complete his studies and returned to Goulburn. But the big city was enticing and he returned to play Rugby League first for St George for ten years then for the Eels. These were the days when you trained two nights a week and worked full time during the day.
Geoff will be missed by his many friends.
