Wilf Geier died peacefully at home on August 6 2010.
Wilf was born in Cranbrook in 1953, then moved with his family to Duncan in 1968.
After leaving school in 1971, Wilf came to Terrace and worked as a logger.
In June of 1977, a vehicle accident left him a quadraplegic. In 1983 he opened the Rosswood General Store and remained the propietor until his death.
The family asks that donations be made to the paraplegic society in lieu of flowers.
Celebration of Life Service for Wilf Geier on Saturday Aug 14, 2 pm, potluck and music.

Our sincerest condolences to Wilfs family. Walking through the Rosswood store door's and being greeted by Wilfs smile, warm and easy manner was a staple in that store. It was like coming home. Great coffee and bannock. He will be sadley missed.

"Uncle" Wilf will be missed by all. From family to extended family, to truckers who travelled through Rosswood and made a stop at the Rosswood General store to grab a coffee and have a visit. He was a great man who showed amazing determination since his accident and greated all with a smile. He will be missed.

I wish to express my deepest sympathy to Wilf's family on their loss.
This will be a big loss to the Rosswood community, his store is the anchor for that community and his presence in the store will be missed.
