Eric, Monia, & Genest family,
Remembering my 1st meeting with your father was at the "original" Bang Hogs Garage when you took on repairing my harley, and then coming down for bikeweeks. I will always remember your dad as the nice, warm, caring individual he was that had a heart of gold, and always put a smile on my face. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. He will be greatly missed and never forgotton.

When I received the sad news, my heart skipped a beat. A wave of sadness came over me and I started to remember all the good times I had with Bert. The late day beer on the porch, and where the porch was, did not matter. the things he did for me that I could not repay, mostly because he would not let me.the way he said my wife’s name made me smile every time. I’m smiling with a tear in my eye now. We loved that man, and he will be very missed. To the Genest family, we are so very sorry for your loss.
