Just found out today about the passing of Gene. What a great man who was always willing to help me out with projects around the home. To this day I still use the carpentry skills he taught me. For the longest time he was like a father to me after my father passed away. Always ready to listen and offer advice. Spent many days at the Catron house for holidays or to watch football. My prayers go out to Tookie and the rest of the Catron Family. May you rest in peace Gene.

Then you always asked me when are you girls ever going to stop seeing that Bon Jovi guy and I laugh and said no Dad never . I'll miss you . Prayers goes out to family and mom and my best friend Misty. I love you all!
