Pawpaw, I will cherish all the great knowledge you gave me. I will never forget the artistic things you taught me. I will remember you as the strong, amazing, most hard-core man you were. No man will ever compare to you, in my eyes. You went through a lot in your lifetime and you never gave up; you kept moving forward no matter what life through at you. I am so glad you and Gams met and made some beautiful children who then made some amazing grandchildren... thank you for loving her and being there for her, and us, all these years. I will never eat circus peanuts without thinking of you and I will never stop thanking military members because of you. I love you forever pawpaw.

I always enjoyed working with Gene in his workshop. He helped me restore the neck on a 1542 Gasparo da Salo violin. I still have and play that violin. He gave me an antique mandolin that came over from Czechoslovakia in the early 1900’s. I still have that mandolin. I got a new bridge for it in the mail yesterday. He will be greatly missed. I used to spend my lunch hours sitting with him on his patio in Riverbend. I learned a lot from him.
