We send our sincere sympathy to all the family and are so sorry we were unable to attend the funeral. Gene was one of the good guys. I loved his parents, Uncle Kesler and Aunt Hattie, and he took wonderful care of them in their later years. We are thinking of you all.

Sympathy for all the family. Gene and I were class mate friends from the earliest grades in school. Everyone liked this good hearted fellow. He will be sadly missed and remembered.

Gene was a very good friend of ours at South Rowan. He played football with my husband and we had a lot of fun together as a group. Gene was a wonderful guy and so so nice and kind to everyone. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. With sincere sympathy, Millie Frye
