Thursday, July 3rd, 1947 – Wednesday, May 24th, 2023
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Gregory (Greg) William Geen of Collingwood, Ontario, on May 24, 2023, at the age of 75.
Greg was born to Harry and Phyllis (née Sweet) Geen in North Bay, Ontario, on July 3, 1947. Greg grew up in Guildwood Village and later graduated from the University of Waterloo. He spent his career as the proprietor of Geen Health Care, and once he retired, made Collingwood his home.
Greg was always a gentleman. His loved ones knew him for his passion for life and cooking, his sense of humour and adventure, boating on the bay and motorcycle trips across North America with his lifelong friend Ian Leith. An avid golfer and skier, he was a familiar face on courses and slopes both locally and afar. He gave generously of his time, including in his various roles for the Men’s Probus Club of Collingwood.
Greg will be forever missed by his loving partner Mikki Belliveau and her children Beau (Coralyn Campbell) Belliveau and Natalie (David) Jensen. He will be fondly remembered by his brothers Barry (Pamela) Geen and David (Samantha) Geen and their families, as well as stepmother Elaine (née Glover) Geen and step-
siblings Darryl Glover, David Glover and Linda Glover Boyle. He will be sadly missed by his nieces and nephews and his many cousins in Nova Scotia and Western Canada.
He will be remembered for his wry humour and as the glue that held the family together. His predeceased parents, Harry and Phyllis, would be proud of how he continued and maintained the tradition of monthly “Brothers’ Meetings,” which were always filled with laughter and spirited debate. It will be a very big seat to fill at the table.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday June 25, 2023, at 2:00 pm at the Bear Estate 300 Balsam, Street Collingwood, Ontario.
In lieu of flowers, Greg’s wishes were that donations be made in his memory to the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital Foundation.
