I cant think of anyone that made me laugh as a kid, like Gene could..his laugh alone could make you laugh at jokes that may not have been very funny. He made everything fun when he was around.Some of my fondest memories as a kid were with him.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Carole, Brian and Scotty and family. I love you guys!
So sorry for the loss of Eugene. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the families and friends. Peace be with you in these times of sorrow. Love Karole and Kayla Cherne.
Carole and family,
We shall miss our bike rider of the neighborhood, Gene, always waving, stopping to talk and share some thoughts and will miss Gene's wit. We share your sorrow, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

This man started me on my way to a business career by letting young boys take responsibility for inventory, collections and payments, while working for Jack Frost Delight. His caring and guiding nature put you at ease to learn and start the work ethic I still have today at 59 years old.I have thought of him often and am always reminded of him when I a young person is polite and is peddling something.He was a God send for a kid who lost his father at 5 years old.Thanks Gene John Thompson Hartland Wis
Dear Carole, Brian, Scott and family;
I want to extend my sincerest condolences to all of the Campbell family.
I spent many hours with Gene doing so many fun things. I remember the first time I saw Gene, he was building the house on Kirkwood all by himself. Right then and there I knew that this was a special kind of guy. I even helped him pour the concrete for the garage at that house. I rode one of his ice cream bikes for a short time, but I have to admit, that wasn't my thing.
Many beautiful summer days were spent swimming at one of the local inland lakes where Gene would take a bunch of us kids. Just about a week ago I recorded a movie that I wanted to watch again. As soon as I saw the title, I immediately thought of Gene. He took me into Milwaukee one day to see "Sunrise at Campobello". I don't remember but Gene probably bought my ticket and popcorn - that's the kind of guy he was.
I spent many days and many evenings at the house on Kirkwood and the one on Rosewood babysitting Brian and Scotty or just hanging out.
Many times I have missed seeing him in the past and I will miss him in the future.
Thank you for the many wonderful times and wonderful memories Gene...
