‘Sunny skies, and open roads is all he sees. Motorcycle exhaust pipes and wind in his ears is all he hears. But, most of all; peace for his loved ones is all he feels!’ -KF

Sixty-two years we were lucky to have him, some great memories, some learning moments, but all were ‘Gene’ moments! You always knew where you stood with him, and you were probably annoyed at some point too. He loved, lost, lived, and was truly his own person! May we all gain the confidence in not caring what others think and just being you like he did!
