University mourns passing of former Management professor

The University community wishes to express its most sincere condolences to the family, friends and former colleagues of the late Geoffrey John England, a former long-serving member of the Faculty of Management.

A memorial service has taken place.

Geoff was born Jan. 9, 1950 in Cleethorpes, England and passed away at his home in Nelson, BC at the age of 61.

He leaves behind his mother Barbara England (nee Moody), sister Christine, his three sons James, Matthew and Ian and their mother, Marilyn (nee Race), his wife Sandra (nee Christou), and their three daughters Elizabeth, Mary and Barbara.

He was predeceased by his father Arthur England. As an arbitrator, educator, and academic writer he made a significant contribution to the field of labour law in Canada.

Geoff was a dedicated family man. He enjoyed many eclectic interests, spending hours playing guitar, learning languages, reading history but above all, he was a loving husband and father.

It was Geoffrey's wish that any donations be made to the Strathcona Society in support of soldiers and families of Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) tank regiment, PO Box 10500, Station Forces, Edmonton, Alberta T5J 4J5.
