I remember Gene fondly. My three little girls lost their daddy when they were just 2, 3, and 4. He and Kathy would come to our house and he would get down on the floor and play with them. He would give them horsey rides. He was such a good man. My girls remember him.

Always remember Gene butchering beef at our farm in the 1970s. Great guy !

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked for Gene in the 80's. He was the best boss.....I am positive I would still be working for him if it was still open ! His birthday was the day before mine and I always remembered to let him know. They were like parents to me.
