    Extending our sympathy to all of Gene’s family during this difficult time. Learning of his passing too late to attend visitation/service, our thoughts are with you all. Gene spoke fondly of his boys/families. Remember the good times and smile.

    I always enjoyed talking with Gene, he was a genuine, caring individual. The last time I saw him was a couple of years ago when he was out garage sale”ing” and happened to stop by my house. He will be missed.
