He was a kind man who enjoyed listening and talking with anyone on any topic. This Spring he celebrated 11 years of sobriety. As an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous, he opened he mind and heart to other members, encouraged those who were struggling and assumed the responsibility of treasurer and setting up the weekly meetings. He was respected and appreciated by other members. Gene's sincerity, quick wit, sense of humor and knowledge will be missed by all who knew him.
