Love 💘 to all family members ❤ and friends that were touched by knowing Gene. One of the first memories that I can recall was when Tammy met Gene, they both were working at a convenience store and I could see they had fun working together, the rest is history. Love, Aunt Barb

I went to school and graduated with Gene and later on he delivered gas to our farm. We would talk about the school days and I lost track of him when we moved the farm. My condolences to his wife and family. He was a good man and friend. God's Speed Gene
