I had the pleasure of knowing Gene for 20 years or more working at General Motors.If I had an electrical problem I always called him.He was a very nice gentleman and he will be missed by all that knew him.

(John 5:28, 29 states)(28)Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice (29)and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.

I am sorry to hear about your loss.Gene sure was a kind and sweet man. One of my fondest memories is whenever I would ride up on my sportster he would tell me it sounded like John Deer Tractor.I thought that was cool, because a John Deer Tractor was a heck of lot more expensive than my bike. I know he is in Heaven, and the angels are singing of his arrival. You all are in my heart and prayers! Patsy Lamb Holliday
