We absolutely LOVE brother Gene!! There was a time he would monitor the church foyer & hallway to "strongly encourage" all of us yappers to go to Sunday School & keep quiet. One Sunday, I suggested he say that with a smile & then I may consider going to class. He responded with the cheeziest smile & ushered us to class. From that point forward, he was our favorite "smiling" hall monitor. I know he loved his sweet wife by watching him care for her even when he wasn't feeling well himself. He also spoke so fondly of his children & their kids. One particular granddaughter(?) Was a beautiful singer & he spoke fondly of her angelic voice. He may have given the back row families "the evil eye look to take your noisey kids out" but he loved us still the same. Sure love him. I won't be the same without my dear friend & brother. He brought me my favorite southern delicacy (boiled peanuts) and nicknamed me "peanut" as well. My heart is broken with his passing. I love you & Catherine. Rest in paradise until we meet again.

Gene was one of my classmates in 1953 at Leitchfield High School. We have kept in touch over the years since our graduation and I've thoroughly enjoyed his emails. I will miss him. Rest in peace Gene.

Bro. Hockenberry was a great soul and a blessing to our family and our church family. He always made me smile over the years! He will be very missed. Prayers for the family and his sweet wife.
