  3. To the family and relatives of Gene.

    Please accept our sincere condolences for your loss of a wonderful man.

    Gene was my Neighbour behind my house. Upon moving into the neighbourhood Gene was the first to welcome us. He was always wanting to chat about the projects I had on the go. It was very easy to become friend with him. I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations and would look very forward to seeing his smiling face perched over the fence as he stood on his stool so we could chat about the simple things in life. He always brought a smile to our faces. Our dogs loved him too!
    Its not often that someone comes accross ones life and leaves a lasting impression…but Gene did!
    He will be missed…but never forgotten!
