September 6, 1957 ~ August 24, 2020
Geoffrey Howard Tague was born September 6th, 1957. On August 24, 2020, at 62 years of age, Geoff moved on to be with family members in Heaven; Father Dorsey G. Tague Jr., Mother Florence Marie Tague, Aunt Mary Ann Tague, and beloved Cousin Laura Ann Tague.
Known to many as Geoffy, the Goo-Man, Uncle Jeppy, Who-are-you-again? Shred-Daddy and Quay, Geoffrey has always been there to make people laugh; he never missed a beat. He helped others before himself and will be remembered for his genuine smile and compassion.
Geoffrey, the owner of Three Village Painting and Restoration, was forever proud of his hard work and accomplishments. He took pride in all he did, was a man of honor and steadfastly lived up to his obligations. Geoffrey had a passion for historic paint restoration and many of his projects can be found in the Village of Port Jefferson, LI, NY. Every home, church and historic building he worked on was done with a dedication to perfection.
In Geoffrey’s youth, he was best known as a fearless high-diver at the Stony Brook Swim & Racquet Club and for his red-hot Firebird in High School. Geoffrey was a superstar in gymnastics and baseball, playing catcher to his brother Dorsey’s pitching, and rocked a paper route, making his sisters help with the Sunday edition. He and his brother shared a life-long laugh over Bugs Bunny and Looney Tunes. Geoffrey was a lefty with a strong passion for golf; not only did he love to watch golf but enjoyed swinging the clubs.
Geoffrey is survived by his loving brother Dorsey G. Tague III, Sister-in-Law Katherine Tague, twin sisters Suzanne A. Thorpe, Husband, Ken Thorpe and Sandra Tague Osman; his loving goddaughter/ niece Ashley N. Tague, and nieces Alixandra Osman, Amanda Orcutt and Olivia Florence Tague; his nephews Evan Osman, Ryan Thorpe, Daniel J. O’Connell III and Dorsey G. Tague IV; Geoffrey’s Felix to his Oscar, best friend Daniel J. O’Connell Jr. and brothers-in-law, Mark R. and David Osman. Geoffrey also leaves behind so many others that meant the world to him, colleagues, friends and admirers; more than he ever believed possible.
