Geoff grew up in the Delisle area. He worked for Webster Surveys for over 10 years and then decided on a career change. He then went to the University of Saskatchewan and graduated from the College of Pharmacy in 2000. He worked at Westgate Shoppers Drug Mart in Saskatoon for 22 years up to his diagnosis of bladder cancer in November, 2021.
Geoff fought hard through this past 10 months and never stopped fighting.
In his younger years, he played slopitch with the Delisle Bandits Men's team with unending memories and fun. He loved curling as well and curled in Delisle and then later on curled twice a week at the CN Curling Club up to his diagnosis.
He loved watching Blue Jays baseball, NFL and NHL cheering as a diehard San Francisco 49ers fan and NY Islanders fan to the end!
He enjoyed golfing, going to the lake fishing and spending time with his family. Sitting around the campfire was always a good time. He had a great sense of humor and his many friends will miss him dearly.
He was predeceased by his father, Victor Major in 2002 and his mother, Marian Major in 2003.
