A note from Joan

Many thanks to all who have sent condolences to me and to the family sharing memories of Geoff. The love and support of so many is a great comfort to us. Geoff was a loving and generous husband. As I have always said, he made me laugh and helped me make up my mind. Both are true but perhaps the best decision he helped me make was to marry him!

His death leaves a big gap. We had been married for over 66 years so I have many happy memories and feel blessed.

Geoff cared for people even when they held very different views from him. I remember during the Vietnam war days he could have a heated argument with someone before dinner, then afterwards , when peace was restored, invite him to lunch the next day. When he was on the Council of the Senate of Cambridge University, I was told that he would often diffuse tension by a phrase or joke.

We have had many letters from colleagues and friends writing that he helped them at critical times in their lives and often expressing affection for him. I think Geoff’s interest and affection brought out the best in people including me!

I look forward attending with family, the memorial service for Geoff to be held at Jesus College Chapel on 11 June at 2 pm. I look forward also to the launch of the Fiftieth Anniversary edition of Geoff’s ‘Some Cambridge Controversies in the Theory of Capital’.

Love Joan
