It has been eleven months since Gene's passing, and he will forever be my "Endless Love".
Our hearts go out to the family.
Gene was an era... .
No one could arm wrestle like he could.
Our good times were so so numerous to mention that I have been thinking of them one by one over the past week.
He was a unique, brilliant and funny man. Most of all he was kind and gentle. Any one who could put his face up to a Rottweiler with ease is someone you don't want to mess with.
We loved him very much and hold him close to our hearts. We are glad we were able to see you both a few weeks ago.
We are so very sorry for your loss,
Tony, Kathie and Pal..
Centavo personally greeted him as did Muscles ( Tommy's Rottweiler!).Lets not forget the blow up doll at the LA Athletic Club for one of his birthdays!
Gene is someone I will always remember...if not for marrying my sister 25 years ago, I would not have experienced his "Famous meatloaf, chilly and spaghetti recipes", wow what a cook. Because of Gene he made me aware of the extreme USC, UCLA, and ND rivalries. Gene loved his Dodger baseball and Laker basketball games and always had an opinion on how the games should be played. I truly enjoyed watching the games with him over the years. But, most of all he loved my sister Sandy as much as she loved him. We will all truly miss you Gene as I know I always will!!! Party on Gene!!! Love Steve
"Gino" as I fondly called him over the years, was a wonderful son-in-law and a true gentleman. When my husband past away in 1998, I stayed with him and my daughter Sandy at their San Dimas home. He would make breakfast and dinner for me to insure I was well taken care of during that difficult time as well as during the many years to follow. I remember well the many songs we sang together and he had a very lovely voice. One of our favorite songs was "I Will Remember You" and that will always be the case in my heart.
