Obituary for Geoffrey Walworth Sjostrom

Geoffrey W. Sjostrom was born on February 24, 1950 in Neptune, NJ to Robert and Alice (nee Walworth) Sjostrom. He died Monday, April 23, 2018 in Chicago.

Mr. Sjostrom was a retired Sergeant with the Oak Park Police Department. As he neared retirement, he became a member of the Arlingtones Men’s Barbershop Chorus of Arlington Heights. This became a passion of his and he was involved in every aspect of the organization. Geoffrey loved to travel, France was a favorite, as was rafting in Colorado. He loved cats, and would adopt the older less desirable ones, who would live out their days with him. He loved to spend time with his nieces and nephews, and would always arrive with chilled champagne in hand.

Geoffrey is survived by his sister, Barbara Sjostrom (the late Jesse B. Porter, Jr.) Porter; nieces and nephews, Matt Porter, Jesse B. (Sherry) Porter, III, Pamela (Daniel) Mahachek, Sarah (James) Day, Marialyce Pedersen and Christian Pedersen; and several great-nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; and sister, Marian Sjostrom.
