Gene an I became friends through our children, Levi and Brittany, and 3 very special grandbabies. The first time I met him was while we were decorating the church for their wedding. He walked in rolled up his sleeves and went to work. He never hesitated one time to be there when needed. Gene became a good friend and I am thankful for the times we spent together. I pray that our grandchildren will always have that tender loving heart like he did. My prayers and live to Kerri and the kids

I used to dance with Gene all the time many years ago and I always liked to spin. There was one night we were dancing and he said no spinning, but of course I did anyway. He put his hand out to catch me and missed so there I go across the dance floor into the table and chairs. Gene felt so bad, he felt even worse the next day after I went to the doctor and came in with a brace on my thumb and hand. He apologized so much, even years later we would laugh about it but he would still tell me how sorry he was. Gene was a wonderful person and I always thought the world of him. My love to Kerrie and Gene’s Family
