Kind and soft spoken, Gene enjoyed every minute of life and his loving personality enlarged his circle of friends wherever he worked and lived. He will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play
My time here may seem too brief
Please don't lengthen it with undue grief
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch
