    I met Geoff when my father, Jeff Duke, introduced him to Baker and Duke. I was 15 and had a little crush on him! He was such a kind, thoughtful and gentle man. Baker and Duke's success was based around honesty, old fashioned values and getting to know their clients well. They had years of loyal clients who trusted the Baker and Duke family and would return time and again. Geoff was a much loved member of this family. My father had the greatest respect for him. He was a rare breed of solicitor and a fabulous human being. He will be missed by so many he has helped and supported over the years. My heart goes out to you Jane and for the family. Warm regards Susanna Dalton nee Duke
