Geoff was born on August 4, 1962, in South Boston, MA to Margaret and William Evans. He grew up in Norwell. In highschool, he participated in swim, wrestling, chorus, and band. After graduating New England Technical School, he proudly worked as an HVAC Engineer, in Boston, for 37 years. He was a dedicated Union Member, and Shop Steward, of the Local 877 Operating Engineers.
Geoff and his wife, Sharon, lived in Plymouth, across the street from a beautiful pond. He enjoyed spending time with his family on the pond, and at the beach. Geoff loved to go boating and always had his fishing pole nearby. Geoff taught his children and grandchildren to work hard, to have fun, and to always work on the quality of life. He loved a good joke, good food, and his family. He put others before himself, and was always willing to help a stranger, or change a flat tire. He was the kindest and most hardworking man you could ever meet. Always providing well for his family, and helping others in need. Geoff had a twinkle in his eye, a kind heart, and always wore a big smile on his face. His happiness was contagious, and his kindness was exponential.
Geoffrey was preceded in death by his father, William, and his mother, Margaret. He is survived by his loving wife, Sharon (Martin) Evans, of Plymouth MA, their six adoring children, Jamie, Jean Marie, Ashley, Amanda, Geoffrey Jr., and Jeff A., and nine grandchildren who think the world of him, Andrew (14), Jesse (10), Skylar (10), Logan (9), Layla (8) Benjamin (7), Michael (5), Nora (3), and Kai (5 months). Geoffrey is also survived by his brothers, William Evans, Christopher Evans and Andrew Evans, many nephews, nieces, cousins, and many dear friends (including his best bud, Tom).
Geoff worked hard his entire life to make those around him happy, and well taken care of. Especially his beloved family. He was a bright light in this world. It’s not going out anytime soon. “It’s not going down like that”. His light will live on in all of us, through the love and kindness that he taught, and showed, and it will continue to live on in others through his generous gift of life through organ donation. He was loved so much, by so many. He was the ultimate positive role model. His kindness and legacy will live on forever. For forever, and a day.
Funeral Mass will be held Saturday January 22nd at 10am.
