Uncle Gene was a kind interesting man. I remember him best smiling driving his Jaguar wearing his tweed flat driving cap.
He visited us at Sparta while my sister Linda and I were in high school. We felt pretty special when he gave us a ride through town. He always had interesting stories about his travels. His eyes twinkled when he grinned! My mom, his sister Hulda really enjoyed his company. Miss you Uncle Gene
