To the family of Uncle Gene, We enjoyed our visits and he was a hoot to be around. Loved his stories and learning about all the things he invented. He loved his family and shared many happy memories of you. You were blessed to have this man as a Dad, grandpa, great grandpa and more. He will be missed. Hugs to you and the family. Prayers for your heart in this time of sorrow. Cousin Scott & Brenda

Steve and all Gene’s family; Deepest condolences in the loss of your father, grandfather and great grandfather. Dad worked with Gene at Badger and was in awe and admiration of Gene’s talents with anything electronic. It’s easy to recall the satellite dish antenna he constructed in his front yard. May the Lord sooth you with the comfort only He can offer. May Gene Rest In Peace. May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace.

Gene gave me the name “ Blondie “ and every time I entered his room he would say , “ there’s my girl or there’s my blondie “ and proceed to always tell me a few jokes , even if it was one he had already told me before I would still set a listen to it over again and he made me laugh every single time I’m glad I got the opportunity to help care for him , this one is hard for me and he was loved , I won’t ever forget him but sure will miss him
