Geoff was born on November 19, 1945 in Los Angeles, California, the son of Robert and Smilka (Kruly) Chadwick. He attended school in Scottsdale, Arizona where he graduated from Judson High School in 1963. While in school, he was a member of the Rodeo Team. Geoff ranched and farmed most of his life and was a professional long haul driver. He traveled the Western United States as a long haul driver from the late 70Â´s through the 80Â´s and will be remembered by his rig with its array of antennaÂ´s. He was the Town Constable in Joliet, Montana and in the late 70Â´s he was an EMT. Geoff married Sandra Shugart in 1971.
Geoff leaves a lifetime of friends in Montana, Washington, Idaho, California, Arizona and Canada.

His many stories from a lifetime of driving in western US and Canada will be fondly remembered as well his unparalleled skill at finding bargains. He was a lifetime member of Trout Unlimited and was a Ham Radio Operator (N7DYX).
