Marc I'm so sorry for your loss. Your dad was really special. I'll carry the memory of a nice man who always found a way to help mend my crappy cars. Wish I could have spent more time with him.

My sincere condolences to the Grissom Family. Audubon Park will not be the same without Gene. He was a icon in the area and well known for his auto shop which always gave you excellent service. I really enjoyed looking through your pictures and I hope you find comfort in knowing how respected he was in the community.
