It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our brother, Geoffrey Ryan Vosen, of Mobile, AL on July 16, 2023.  He was born in Hillsboro, WI on November 7, 1973, the youngest child of Robert and Anita Vosen of LaFarge, WI. 

Geoff graduated high school from Bay Springs, MS.  He was active in sports and 4H, earning many awards showing Limousin cattle.  He attended Holmes Community College, University of Wisconsin – Madison, and Mississippi State University.  Geoff excelled in the automotive industry as a service writer and service manager; he possessed the innate ability to listen to your problem vehicle, and without error, diagnose the issue.  His career was spent assisting customers in Birmingham, Scottsboro, Huntsville, and Mobile, AL.   Geoffrey never met a stranger.  We will all miss his sweet and charming presence.
