Philip Geotis

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Of Saugus. Passed away peacefully on November 26, 2023, surrounded by his closest family.

Philip, better known as Phil, was born to Evelyn and Spiros Geotis on March 28, 1966, in Saugus, MA. He married his high school sweetheart, Barbra Geotis, on May 16, 1987. He was a loyal employee as a truck driver for EZ Disposal for over 20 years. His countless “colorful” stories from the road reflect his charismatic personality and love of driving. He loved nature-especially bird watching, being outdoors, campfires, canoeing, and riding bikes. As any true Bostonian, he was a passionate (and profane) sports fan, a huge movie buff, and was Aerosmith’s number one fan. You could always count on Phil to throw movie quotes into any conversation, probably while holding a glass of Pepsi. Phil was the best at making people laugh and his own laughter was incredibly contagious. He lit up every room with his sarcastic and animated personality. Phil’s favorite pastime was spending time making memories with his family. He was especially proud of his three boys and loved, more than anything in the world, talking about memories of them growing up.

Philip is preceded in death by his Mother Evelyn, his father Spiros and his siblings Karen Ciampa and George Geotis. Philip is survived by his loving wife, Barbra and three children, Nicholas and his wife Rebecca, Taylor and his wife Kiley, and his youngest son Alec. He is also survived by his brother Paul Geotis, nieces Melissa Ciampa, Jenn Abell, Stacey Geotis, and nephews Adam and Kevin Geotis among many loving friends and extended family members.

The family of Phil wishes to extend our sincere thank you to the doctors and nurses at Mass General Hospital for their dedicated and loving care.

Visitation was held at the A. J. Spadafora Funeral Home, Malden on Saturday, December 2.
