I met Gene while stationed at FE Warren AFB. He was one of my co-workers. I was a young Airman and he was a TSgt. We became good friends. I ended up living in his basement in Cheyenne Wyoming. While living there, I met most of his family. His family was just as nice as him. I visited him at Eglin AFB. We kept in touch, but lost contact. I was so sorry to see his obituary. He was a good man. I remember his children Mike and Dawn, who loved their dad. Rest in Peace my friend. My Air Force brother. See you someday again.

Gene, my brother! I am deeply saddened that we have lost you so soon. My heart aches knowing I will no longer have our long talks over the phone. Knowing I will no longer be able to come visit you when this COVID 19 was gone. You always tried to keep the family together in a way that was not intrusive to anyone. You nurtured Dawn & Michael into beautiful adults. Then you continued nurturing your grand children. As GOD said - you can say: I am well pleased. Jesus blessed you and GOD gave you much favor. You were taken to heaven so you will be able to continue your mission of LOVE. I am blesssed and honored to be your brother. Love you forever. Charles

Dad we miss you and love you, you were taken from us to soon . Goodbye for now but not forever. ❤
