Gene has lived over a century of extraordinary change and remarkable historical events.
“Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly on those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirit young and full in vigour. With such people the grey head is but the old fellow’s hand giving the blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well spent life.” – Charles Dickens
