It is with great sadness that the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade advises the death of brigade member Geoff Thorpe.

After a brief but brave battle with cancer, Geoff passed away peacefully in the early hours of Friday (11/01/2013) with his family by his side.

Geoff joined the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade in 2006 and since then has been a valued firefighter and contributor to the brigade and the local community. Geoff was one of our valued and respected volunteers who was always willing to put his hand up to do those often thankless tasks. His commitment and loyalty to his fellow CFA colleagues is something which we will always remember him for.

A funeral service will be held this Friday, 18/1/2013 at 11am at the Church of England, Melvins Road, Riddells Creek.

On behalf of the members of the Riddells Creek Fire Brigade, we offer our deepest sympathies to wife Julie and to Geoff’s family and friends.
