To Gene's children and grandchildren: Vicki and I would like to extend our sympathies. We're sorry for your loss. Gene was a valuable member of our community and church.

CandleI grew up directly across the road from Gene and Gail. Fairview Road was the farmers road. My heart hurts knowing our small community has lost yet another. God speed.

Jill Lewandowski on May 5, 2020

CandleIt was our honor & privilege to have worked with Gene. We thank Julie Librande for allowing our team to assist and Helen and Jeff Schultz for showing each of us such hospitality and warmth while we were in your home. It is with the love and support of a family such as you all, during this journey, that allowed Gene to pass with dignity, comfort & peace while surrounded daily by those who loved him dearly!
