Gene's family was the light of his life. He was an amazing father and a cherished grandfather, great grandfather, and great-great grandfather. He loved getting together and having a big party with all his family. He would never leave a gathering without letting everyone in the room know how much he loved them and proclaiming, "He had the BEST family."
We will all forever miss our sweet Grandpa Gene. As a family, we are blessed beyond measure that we were able to have him a part of our everyday lives until he crossed over to be with his beloved Beulah and numerous family and friends.
