If you were around Gene, you were guaranteed to laugh because he always had a great story for you. Gene had two great loves: his wife, Rhonda, and the game of golf. You would find him most days on the golf course swinging the club or fishing balls out of the pond with Rhonda, who was the best cart driver. He loved a bargain; he loved going to the swap meets to look around and search for that million-dollar treasure. He loved to listen to classic country music while refurbishing old golf clubs he had haggled someone out of. He loved his dog, Marlee, and would even FaceTime with her regularly while in the hospital.

You were always the man we could count on, and although you were a straight shooter, you always got your point across and provided sound advice. You always made sure we made our decisions after thinking things through. You always gave it 110% and never stopped fighting for what’s right. Because of you, we have the hearts of a lion, the love of our family and an insane work ethic. We thank you dad for all the calls, wise words of advice, the love you gave us and the beautiful lives we’ve lived because of you, your hard work and your boundless love for us.
