If true - and Im not doubting that it isnt - then this resolves a long standing mystery.

Sad news indeed.

Sad. That would explain many things and why we never got news about him after all those years.

After I googled my uncle's name and noticed that he is stated as deceased on many blogs on the internet. I am very happy to advise that 'Bubba' aka Geoff Parry is very much alive and well and enjoying his retirement on the east coast of Sydney Australia.

Glad to hear that, but who was the person that finally posted that he died????? :o If it's true, so I do want to know which person in this forum is actually responsible for claiming Geoff Parry died! :twisted:

I started this thread about Geoff Parry. If it's true that he is still alive then I'm very sorry if this has upset anyone.

A person sent me a PM on this website and told me he was the nephew of Geoff Parry. That persons username is heyrofl

I had no reason to think it was a hoax and it would explain why Geoff Parry isn't listed on imdb for any acting work beyond 1999. I can't see what anyone would have to gain from this. The nephew told me he currently lives in Germany where he went to live with his parents when he was a child.

I can tell you that I did not update imdb or Wikipedia about his date of death. I only posted the details on this forum.

The nephew in Germany gave me his email address, I've just sent him an email about this and I will post on this thread after I receive a reply.

Is it possible that Colettes uncle is Geof Parry, the Senior Reporter with Seven News (2002 – 2008) who had heart bypass surgery according to a youtube video.
