Geoffrey Alan Spina was born October 6, 1957, in Roseau, Minnesota, and passed away suddenly on November 6, 2021, at the age of 64 years.

Geof graduated from Roseau High School in 1976. Following graduation, Geof enlisted in the United States Air Force. He underwent basic training at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas. He served his country for six years, attaining the rank of Staff Sergeant, at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming. After leaving the air force, he was employed at various jobs. He trucked for several years for Marvin Windows and he was employed for many years at Wright Tree Service in Minneapolis. Geof’s free spirit brought him back to over-the-road long haul trucking. For quite some time, almost up until the time of his retirement, he operated his own tractor/truck and trailer. Geof logged many miles over the course of his trucking career. He retired in the spring of 2021.
Geof loved the lakes region where he enjoyed the summers boating and grilling. On retirement, he planned to winter in Harlingen, Texas, where he was at the time of his death. He loved the warm weather and was always heading for the pool and the hot tub. Geof was a very special person. He was a free spirit who seemed to love the open road. He had seen every state in the U.S. and felt that Minnesota and Texas were the most beautiful. He had a kind and generous heart. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
A Celebration of Life in Geof’s honor will take place at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, November 24, 2021, at Boulger Funeral Home, 123 10th Street South in Fargo, N.D. Military interment to follow at the Fargo National Cemetery.
