We were very sad to learn that Gene had passed. Gene was a remarkable man and we will miss him.
Gene and I were the 2 oldest guys in our racquetball doubles group. Gene was a really crafty player and together we sometimes beat the younger players. We both loved doing this and rubbed it in every time we were able to win.
Gene played so well through terrible medical problems. He was an inspiration for all of us.

Uncle Gene: You will be missed so very much. I will always be grateful for the morning you came to the house to tell me Dad had passed and to stay with me until someone else arrived. You were a comfort on the darkest, most painful day of my life. I have been and will continue to be eternally grateful for your love and support. Much love and prayers for comfort to Aunt Rena and Kim.
