I have just copied this from Facebook:

It is with a very sad heart that I am informing members of this page of the passing of Ex Warrant Officer Coxswain Geoff Carroll. Geoff passed away this morning at his home in Malacoota with his wife Ex Supply Officer Jenny Lloyd by his side. A great man gone too soon and will be missed by many. RIP Geoff.


I served with Geoff on Hobart and have never met a nicer bloke. Scrupulously fair with those he had to deal with via his job, but absolutely ruthless in dealing with those who would do wrong by those in our crew. The world is a sadder place with his passing.

Vale, Geoff. May you have calm seas and gentle breezes on your journey, and perhaps a stop here and there for a bit of fishing. I will miss you old mate.

Well said CJ, I spent some time with Geoff, along with Ned, at Creswell in the mid 70's.

A few years ago, I bumped into Geoff at the ANZAC Day ceremony at Mallacoota and it was good to catch up.

Very sad to hear of his passing and condolences to his wife, as well as his sons.

RIP Geoff. :salute1:

So sorry to hear Geoff has passed away.I served with Geoff and Jenny at Nirimba in the mid-eighties and a more loving couple you would never meet.

RIP Geoff and my condolences to Jenny.

Bye old mate.

This is sad news indeed, as BC said, I served with Geoff at Creswell and also at Nirimba where I met Jenny. I haven't seen since him 82, but I remember the good times we had.

Rest in peace buddy.
