On January 8, 2024, surrounded by family, after a courageous battle, aged 83 years. Dearly loved husband of Jenny for 60 years, much loved father and father-in-law of Kevin and Val, Grant and Tracey, Brendon and Robyn, and Bronwyn and Richie, and a loved and adored grandad and great-grandad. Special thanks to Dr Peter Ganly and haemotology team for their ongoing care and support. Thank you also to the nursing staff at Lady Wigram Hospital over the last month. Messages may be addressed to The Family of the late Geoffrey Rump, c/- PO Box 39001, Christchurch 8545. In lieu of flowers, donations to Lions Club of New Brighton (of which Geoff was an active member for 45 years) to support community-based initiatives, would be appreciated, and may be made at the service. A Service to celebrate Geoff’s life will be held in our Oaklands Chapel, corner of Halswell Junction and Wigram Roads, Halswell, on Friday, January 12, at 2.30pm.
