We are so sorry for your family’s loss of Gene. He was truly a good guy and great family man. He was a principled man who treated all with dignity and respect, even though he was beating us badly at golf.
We got to know Gene, while Linda and him would winter in Arizona. There were a group of 10 golfer who would play weekly, and Gene loved playing with us at some beautiful courses. Gene had the respect of all of our golf group and very patience with us lessor skilled players. Gene will be sorely missed.

I was sad to hear of Gene’s passing. I knew him while he served on the Hamilton Fire Department. He was a fine officer and fire fighter and respected by his fellow fire fighters. He will be missed by his many friends. My sympathy to his family.

TO MESA, AZ WHERE GENE WAS IN MY WEDDING JUNE 20, 1970, WE HAD A FEW PHONE CALLS EVERY SO OFTEN AFTER HE, LINDA AND BABY DAUGHTER WENT BACK TO HAMILTON, OHIO AS WE BOTH FOCUSED ON OUR FAMILIES AND JOBS. I WAS LOOKING THROUGH MY OLD ADDRESS AND DISCOVERED HIS PHONE NUMBER AND CALLED AUG. 6, 2020 AND LINDA TOLD ME THE BAD NEWS ABOUT HIS HEALTH BUT HE WAS ABLE TO TALK WITH ME FOR OVER HALF AN HOUR, THANK GOD IDID IT WAS 14 DAYS BEFORE HE PASSED.
