Anne and family,
Our prayers are with you today as you say your final goodbyes.
I remember meeting Gene at St Michael’s during an event where your family made delicious beignets! Your family was always involved in Boy Scouts & Girl Scouts. Scout pancake fundraisers, camping, scout community service, and a Boy Scout Trek To Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico!
A full life well lived filled with loving family memories!
Prayers & Love, Marsha & Ed Jacklitsch

Gene influenced so many children through his devotion and service to the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. I am so sorry for your great loss. May your memories bring you comfort and may perpetual light shine upon him.

I was saddened to learn of Gene's death. We worked together many years ago at Dow in Freeport. The unit was named Mag Chlor. The Chlor being the Chlorine Recovery unit. Gene was a good friend, colleague, and energetic person. He was not afraid of hard work and long hours.
It has been many years since we have crossed paths. This time lapse has not affected my sincere appreciation of all the good that Gene did.
My condolences,
Jim Kyle
