He was a kind, gentle, and genuine man. His spirit and the love and care he showed others was always an inspiration to me.

I am so saddened to hear of Gene's passing. I have known him since we were children, went to church together and went to school together! Mrs Doris was also one of my teachers. Gene will be dearly missed, but I know that he is happy that he is walking the streets of Heaven along with his mom and dad. Rest in peace sweet Gene.
