So very sorry to hear of Gene’s passing. Although I never met him in person, he was a terrific long-distance work colleague who always took the time from his busy day to explain technical matters to me that were over my head. His keen insight was invaluable when developing our project schedules. There were many times I would call him just to seek his opinion - - and I’m sure I was not the only one. Gene was highly regarded and will be greatly, greatly missed by all. Please accept my sincerest condolences.

I saw and loved Gene as my second father, my mentor, and bowling coach. I have so many memories of Gene always coaching me thru bowling and if I had only listened then I would have been a much better bowler now. I am sorry for your families loss and will always be here if you need anything.
