  11. To Jack and your family, my deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers.
    Smitty you were a good human, a good man, and a true friend. You were always there to help anybody even if you didn’t know them, as long as you believed it was the thing to do. You knew how to pick someone when they were down, and always found a way to find the bright side when things were bleak.
    Love you buddy, you will be missed but always in my thoughts

  12. I had the privilege of meeting Geoff in 2004 and without knowing it at the time, both Geoff and Jack became an instrumental influence in my life and taught me self confidence in an industry i was very new in. Geoff was my work partner for 3 years and a very dear friend who had a big heart and a kind soul. Geoff always looked at things on the bright side and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. Geoff had the best jokes and his sense of humour was so infectious , you couldn’t help but laugh along side of him. My fondest memory of Geoff was on a vacation to Mexico and out on a fishing boat with hopes of snagging a big one. With all of us sea sick except for Smitty who was unfazed, reeled in the biggest sailfish of the day !! The look of excitement and joy on his face will stay with me forever. I will miss my friend dearly. Rest in Peace Smitty and i hope to see you again in the next life 👊🏻
