Gene was a hardworking man, he spent most of his time keeping his equipment and business running, He had many things he also loved to do, boating, traveling, motorcycling and socializing were his favorites.  He was very much a dedicated animal lover, and would stop frequently to help turtles and other animals get across the road. After my mother passed, my father would frequently visit the bark park where him and Cody received a lot of comfort and joy!

Gene will be missed by his family and friends and has now joined our mother, the love of his life.
