I had the great pleasure of working with Gene for several years. I so enjoyed his jokes, his sense of humor, and his delightful personality. Although he called himself, ”Mean Gene,” he will continue to be the nicest guy I know. I love him and will miss him dearly. This world is a much better place because he was in it .🦋💛
