Geoff Darwin 1936 - 2015

Geoff Darwin                                    1936 - 2015

It is with great sadness that we learn of the passing of Geoff Darwin. Geoff was the longest serving singing member of the Choir having joined the Choir in 1959. His brother Alan joined the Choir later that year and remained in the Choir for about 6 years until he moved from Chester to live in Manchester. As Alan left the Choir his and Geoff's father (also named Alan) joined the Choir and sung with Geoff for several more years.
Geoff was a stalwart member of the Choir taking pride in the fact that from the Spring Festival Concert of 1959 until the October Festival of 2014 (55 years he never missed a single Festival Concert.
Our thoughts are with Lillian and his family at this time.
The funeral will take place on Thursday 5th February with a Family service at the Crematorium, followed by a service of thanksgiving at Caldy Valley Church at 3.30pm. when the choir has been asked to sing and everyone is invited to remain for refreshments afterwards
