Somewhere a journey begins at the end of the worldly existence we know,

Somewhere a path stretches over the stars,
and rivers of memories flow,

Somewhere a silence is heard far away and the brightness of day fills the night,

Where the trials of life are resolved into PEACE when a soul finds its way to the light....

This site is dedicated to Geoffrey Thomas Ayers. My Brother, my big brother but more importantly my Friend. A man of many unique talents and abilities that will become apparent to you as you join us here in this celebration of his Life. This site will be an eternal "work in progress" it will evolve and grow as time marches on. You are invited to join in this evolution and return here time and time again to up date this ongoing celebration of LIFE with us, for we are Geoffs family and if you are reading this so are you.

My Brother has been survived by his wife Kathie, his sons Brennan and Timothy, his daughter Kasey, two Grandsons Jackson and Evan. Further survived by two brothers, John (Johny) and Bryan (Paddy) as well as a sister Maureen. He has nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Such are the ways of a family tree.

Please feel free to journey here with us in cyberspace, kindly add your stories, pictures, videos and memories of Geoff or simply light a virtual candle and/or sign the guest book. In this way his memory will remain alive forever.

It is his wish that there should be no pain amongst those of us that remain here (easier said than done). Rather, he wants that there should be some gatherings, in which we remember the happy times, rejoice and enjoy each other, as he enjoyed us all. Feel free however, to share your pain and grief with us, we understand, we feel it all too. This memorial website is the first of such gatherings. There will be at least one gathering in physical reality when his family is better able to address it. All will be be notified and all will be welcomed, stay tuned.

From the time he drew his first breath till he exhaled his last all he ever wanted to do was "have some fun".

Well here we are two days past your birthday.
Still missing you at family gatherings and such. I know that you are in a better place now. A place where there are no worries and no painful things to deal with. You did your best for all of us while you was here. You can be very proud of your boys. They have turned into the men that you schooled them to become. See ya all of a sudden. BPA

While cleaning out my mail, I found an old email from Geoff where we were catching up on life after a few years. The last sentance ended in " …. Remember one thing, no matter what, “It’s all good.”
Thanks Geoff. I needed someone to remind me of this. Hope heaven has Harleys and Strats. Take care friend.

A sudden Loss of a Loved one is always a Painful Tragedy to those Family or Friends who were left behind. Left behind is an interesting phrase, and if you have Faith then yes, we have been left behind and Geoff is now playing Lead in a New Band in Heaven. His Family, Friends, Music, Environment, Art and Free Spirit was all he Loved. Geoff always Admired Eagles which is maybe why he loved riding his Harley so much. He also used the Tag "Ozone Ranger" on and saving the Planet was another one of his concerns. I always knew Geoff as a Great Person, a Close Friend and as a Brother I never had who was always ready to help or care for anyone who needed him.
Because of all Geoff was, I have to believe that his dying suddenly was God's way of sparing him any suffering that he would have had to endured later. I am Grateful and Happy that my Life's path and Geoff's crossed that day back in '64 when Bobby Terella introduced me to him. I am sad that we are now apart but will forever cherish all the days that we laugh together. Goodbye will never be the right word to use because my memories will keep our Friendship alive forever. I always thought he was someone who could have once been a Indian Chief in a Past Life because he always loved Nature and the Freedom it offered.
Geoff, May you Soar like the Eagle you always wanted to be.
Peace in Heaven my Old Friend,

GTA I miss our calls every month. I hate the thought of not going to PA to see where Flt 93 crashed. Miss drinking our wishkey and beer! Miss listening to you explain just about everthing in the universe and being right! But most of all I'll miss Albert's son!

"Go in PEACE Brother! STRESS can kill the body but nothing can kill the spirit. I will join you soon in the hereafter. As I suffer daily I am glad that you did not. It is better to burn out than to fade away."
