So sorry for your loss. Praying for the family. Love and blessings--Cathy Cathy Carbone McClendon, September 1, 2017 Gene was a kind and very generous man. I had only been around Gene a few times -but in those times I could tell he was the kind of man that was caring and loved people. I met him through Lucille which is my sister in law by marriage to my brother Jim. Lucille speaks very highly of him and knows he has taken very good care of Norma during their time together. May God bless his family during these very sad and difficult times and give you peace. My thoughts and prayers go out to each and every one for your great loss. Diane Wolfinger, August 29, 2017 We are so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Hugs Marilyn Pena, August 28, 2017 Gene was undeniably one of the most genuine, fun loving, funny, and caring people I have ever known. It was very much my honor and privilege to have had him in our lives. I can't help but smile when I think of the countless games of Chickenfoot filled with laughter around the kitchen table. He was kind and generous. He was a fantastic grandfather to our daughter Ashlee. To say he will be missed may well be the ultimate understatement. Todd Noebel, August 28, 2017
