It was our honor and privilege to know and work with Gene and watch him play his MAGIC as Santa at the annual Childrens Christmas Party held at the Scottish Rite each year. During these years, we have gotten to experience life at its best and have gotten to know his family better (especially a couple of his grandsons). Even though Gene is gone, our memories of him will never fade!
