Gene served on our board of directors for many years as Training Director of our non-profit group, the Okla Predictive Maint. User's Group, which is group of about 50 manufacturers & 500 people. As president of OPMUG, I just wanted to express our gratitude for Gene. Gene's enthusiasm and energy was unmatched. He was always challanging us to do our best. He increased our training schedule 300% when he took over! Gene was always so-o-o kind in words and in heart. He was just a delight to be with and one of those people you truly enjoyed being around. I can't imagine how much a better place Gene made the world. In our little part of the world, Gene made life wonderful just by being here with us. We will truly, truly miss him.
Very sorry for your loss. We will miss Gene at the gym with the rest of us regular "oldies".
