While visiting my mother,( Doretta: Gene’s sister), in California over the holidays, my husband and I always looked forward to also enjoying the company of my Uncle Gene and Aunt Lorraine. Gene certainly enjoyed life to the fullest; and now may he rest in peace.
Uncle Gene was a fellow Soldier and one who served his country unselfishly in a time of great need. A great man who will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him. Rest in Peace.
