  1. Gene was a distinguished looking gentlemen with a keen smile. He shared his knowledge and love of life (especially tennis) with all. You will be missed Gene. Jeanette

  2. Always appreciated Gene in providing a place for me for a few days when I got out
    of the Navy until I got my Single Apt. in 1963 & then stood up as my Best man when
    Marlene & I were married in 1964. During the following years we had seen each other
    when living in Texas, Houston and California, Santa Monica, San Jose & Bakersfield.
    We would get together on weekends when we could and do things together. I never could
    give him a good game in tennis but bowling I could give him a great game for me. It seems like he was kept busy with his insurance business and doing electronics with
    phones, computers & working on his movie collection. The last year we did allot of
    communications with each other via phone and emails. He will always be remembered.
