VALE GEOFFREY GAUCI
It is with deep regret that Norths announces the death of Geoff Gauci, in the early hours of Monday morning. Our condolences go out to his wife, Therese, son Godfrey, daughter, Bianca, and their families.
Geoff was a big person – personality-wise and, most of all, with a huge heart. This could be seen each week as he cheered on our North’s teams, giving them whole hearted support both on and off the court.
Geoff became involved at Norths, when his son, Godfrey, started playing Junior reps. Geoff was never one of those people to sit back and let someone else to do the work, and was soon manager of the rep team.
He developed a great rapport with the team and right up until his death, still referred to them as “my boys”.
But Geoff did more than support our rep program. He offered his services as a director, during a very difficult time in our history, as we moved from the outdoor Rooftop to the North Sydney indoor Sports Centre.
For his services to Norths, Geoff was an inaugural inductee in to Norths Hall of Fame in 2011.
Norths has lost our “Super Supporter”. His family has lost a loving husband, father and grandfather.
Geoff, thank you for your contribution to Norths. Rest in Peace. You will be missed but not forgotten.
For those who would like to attend his funeral will be held on Friday, 3rd May, starting at 12.00pm, at the Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel, 11 Currie Road, Forestville.
