About twelve years ago I met Gene for the first time while I was tuning up my Eskimo roll at Walden Pond. Gene was there in a sea kayak. Because he had never paddled in the ocean, I convinced him to meet me at a popular ocean launching place a few days later and our friendship began.

Within a few months Gene had mastered a reliable roll. Gene, several others and I met weekly to paddle from various locations on the north shore. Several years later Gene started to slow down. We both assumed it was due to normal aging.

But about seven years ago Gene was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma. For sure that accounted for his slowdown.

In many ways Gene is a hero. Through many years of chemo, blood transfers, broken bones, two complete hip replacements, etc., he kept paddling whenever he could and made the best of it. What more can a sea kayaking hero do? He clung to life as long as he could. Unfortunately, the cancer finally beat him.

RIP good buddy
