LUCK, Dr Geoffrey Michael Luck -
August 1946 - November 2023
With great sadness, we announce the sudden passing of Dr Geoffrey Michael Luck on November 20th, 2023.
Born in Guyana, South America, Geoffrey studied medicine at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica and Trinidad.
His sense of adventure, and the love of a girl he would eventually marry, led him to Canada for a 'short' visit in 1972.
A chance stop at St Michael's Hospital in Toronto led to an internship, and the rest, as they say, is history. He would eventually settle in Oshawa and open a private practice as a family physician.
He retired from the Oshawa Clinic in 2016.
A passionate traveler, Geoff also loved spending time at the cottage but cherished time with family and friends most.
Son of the late Samuel and Olivia Luck (nee Choo-she-nam), Geoff is survived by his loving wife of 50 years Alana (nee Headecker), his only son Michael (Adriane) and his adoring grandchildren Evan and Christian.
He was the eldest of 5 children Tom (d.2010) (Mary), Samuel Patrick (Anne-Marie), Roger (Denise), and Kathy Malcolm (Richard).
A beloved uncle and friend to many, Geoff, or Papas, will be fondly remembered for his kind soul, his big heart, generous nature and his infectious smile.
He was a wise and brave man who could do anything he put his mind to. A great storyteller (unless he broke down in laughter), he could always cheer you up when you were down.
A visitation will be held on Thursday November 23rd, 2023 at DESTEFANO FUNERAL HOME 1289 Keith Ross Drive in Oshawa from 5-8pm with a tribute at 7pm. A private service will follow on Friday.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Kidney Foundation, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and/or Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
Geoffrey's legacy of hard work and generosity will live on through those who knew him.
