  1. Such a great guy and friend. I have prayed daily for Gene. This is so hard to take. I am going to bed with a heavy heart but know this life is short but eternal life is beautiful.

  2. I am so very sad to hear of Gene’s passing. Gene was always at any reunion, luncheon, party, or get-together that he was able to attend and always had a smile on his face and a hug for you. He loved our classmates just as we loved him. His sweet and happy attitude will be missed so much. Why does life sometimes have to be so sad?

  3. What a precious fun-lovin’ guy, Gene was!!! I so missed him at reunion and the last luncheon. He was a fabulous “personality” in our class! Life of the party! We have lost a class treasure!!
