Geoff K. Lonsdale 1947-2021

WARREN — Geoff K. Lonsdale, 74, of Warren passed away Friday morning, April 9, 2021, at University Hospital in Cleveland, after a two-year battle with leukemia.

Geoff was born Jan. 14, 1947, in Liverpool, England, the son of James and Muriel Edwards Lonsdale.

Growing up in Liverpool, Geoff graduated from secondary school and enjoyed playing guitar and singing in pubs around England. He also worked above the famous Cavern Club, which launched the Beatles’ career, for a short time. Geoff was employed as the vice president of sales for Superior Cup, which brought him to Warren in the 1980s. As a member of the Warren Area Jaycees, Geoff met the love of his life, Carole Cadle. The two were married and celebrated 31 years of marriage.

Geoff was an all-around sports fan. He coached his kids in soccer for many years, played league soccer at Farmer Jim’s and never missed an opportunity to cheer on the Liverpool Football Club. While soccer may have been his favorite sport, he was a loyal Ohio sports fan. Every year, he excitedly watched the Cleveland Indians, Browns, Cavaliers and The Ohio State Buckeyes. Most of all Geoff loved his family. Whether it was traveling to St. Martin Island, going out to dinner or just staying home, Geoff valued that time that he spent with those he loved.

He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

Geoff is survived by his wife of 31 years, Carole Lonsdale; children, Elliott (Clarissa Quinteros) Lonsdale of Chile, Rachel (Gail) Flowers of Howland and Bryan (Kayla Trevino) Lonsdale of Columbus and grandchildren, Blake and Miranda Flowers.

Geoff was preceded in death by his parents.
