Our Heavenly Father whispered in Gene’s ear it is time to come home. So he took with him the twinkle in Gene’s eyes, his beautiful smile, and his wonderful sense of humor. Those of us who loved him are sorrowful at this time, but hopefully our sorrow will soon be replaced with joy as we think of how blessed we were that such a wonderful man touched our lives. Gene enjoyed sewing, drawing, along with collecting dolls and bears. Gene has such a passion for Christmas, Easter and Halloween, he loved decorating for those holidays. Gene was born February 2, 1947 in Roy NM to Hinio and Lucinda Velasquez he grew up and attended school in Dalhart, TX where he was a member of the band and graduated in 1964.

My beloved Gene. I am just finishing clearing your closet. I have folded your clothes with loving care for donation. There are so many wonderful memories I have after sharing 38 years with you. How did I get so lucky to have such a loving wonderful man to pick me to take on a life journey. Your passing has left me full of sorrow for the moment. It is because being here in the house packing up some of your treasures that you enjoyed over the years. I am keeping the few items that I think meant the most to us. Like the doll Litttle Lucinda for example. My Gene how I wish I could of been there with you. I hope you knew how much I ❤️ you. I pray we will be together again my most beloved.
