It was a shock to hear of Gene's passing.
The picture in the Photo Gallery was of our Doctoral Fellows at UofM in Homecoming. L to R George Urch, myself,Gene,and Harvey Jahn. We've lost both Gene and Harvey. Room 4124 was where we did our final work with Prof. Claude Eggertsen. I now live in Port Huron and Gene and I would meet for lunch sometimes at the Big Boy on the east side of Flint to split the drive. On one memorable occasion my neighbor, Marv Kirchoff and I drove over to help Gene install the deck on his house on Elmwood Dr. Gene finished the job later. The four of us were also know as the "Blue Brothers World Council". That tag wag was from Harvey Jahn[West Point Class,1958]. I should add that Gene was also at Michael Moore's wedding and we even ran into him and his wife one time at Big Boy--small world. Gene lives on with his contributions to education, the U of M Notes & Abstracts publications and now joins Harvey in continuing to call "GO BLUE"!!! They'll need their help!
