Gene lived a beautiful life to the fullest. Those who knew him loved his bright light and enjoyed his loving spirit.

His talents blessed so many people-his nieces especially loved receiving gift packages of his artistic talent in the form of artwork and jewelry. Gene knew how to make beauty with his hands. He was a gifted seamstress, chef, home decorator, gardener, painter, and jewelry maker up until the last few days of his life. He will be greatly missed by us all.
