My brother-in-law Gene was handsome, charming, and a true raconteur. I loved listening to his stories! It seemed as though he could fix anything, and he liked to stay busy. A warm and generous friend, wonderful husband and father, we were fortunate to have you in our lives. You will be missed by everyone who had the pleasure to know you.
