Gene is my cousin. I live in the north he lives in the south. If you had the good fortune to know this man consider yourself a very lucky person. He never ran out of jokes or funny stories to make people laugh. He was definitely one of a kind. I wish there were millions more like him this earth would be a much better place. There was never a dull moment with Gene around. He was funny, talented, honest (except when he told those outrageous stories) and entertaining. A kind, caring and unique man who never saw a stranger or lacked for words. You will be greatly missed Gene!

My family thought the world of Uncle Gene!!! He was one of a kind. If you were in a bad or sad mood he was the person to getting you to smile. The world will not be the same with out him, but at least he is no longer suffering. My thoughts and prayers are with Mama Dean and the rest of the family. Love you Uncle Gene.
