Dear Peg,
We were so sorry to hear of Gene's passing. We had hoped to offer our condolences in person at the funeral mass today but unfortunately we are unable to get out of our driveway because of a downed tree.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Vin and Margaret Fournier

Roland, Ashleigh & I send our most heartfelt condolences to everyone. I will always have fond memories of Christmas Day in Bedford and many a Summer day spent at the beach house in Scituate, going for a ride on Uncle Gene's boat out to the lighthouse, looking for sea creatures during low tides, and of course the parades. It was never a dull moment and I will cherish those memories always.

With all of our heartfelt Love,

Heather, Roland & Ashleigh

Peggy and family, so very sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. He was a great friend, the best CFO any company could want, and my best first mate on oh so many boat trips north and south. I will miss his call to “Just to check in “ He was a friend to so many at Spencer, and a confidant to all. I will miss his smiling face . He’s up with John now standing out on a deck somewhere just doing what if’s .
