I am sorry to learn of Eugene's passing. We were not friends in our adulthood, but we were childhood friends growing up on Wawona in Oakland. Our mother Dorothy was one of Peg's best friends, and Eugene and Jane were a fixture at our neighborhood parties and we at their's. Many fond memories of shared family times in the redwoods of Santa Cruz and Felton. My condolences to immediate and extended family. As a kid he was a ray of sunshine. Fondly Nancy Arcelona, (formerly Sparrowe).

Eugene was a wonderful family friend and I enjoyed getting to know even better during my time in Ithaca. He routinely became a part of family dinners when my parents visited me at college. I looked forward to his many stories, ranging from intriguing to inspiring (as a biology major, we shared many interests) to hilariously wacky. But no matter the subject, he always wore his contagious smile and spoke with passion. His love for life and work will always be an inspiration and something he has taught me to strive for in my life, as well.

I received a call just now from a Cornell colleague who informed me of Gene's death on 9 August. Gene and I overlapped in Martin Alexander's lab back in the 80s. We kept in touch via email on such subjects as the hoops we had to jump through in academia in order to get grant money. I was going to contact Gene in a week or two to see if we could get together since I'm speaking at a symposium at Cornell the end of next month, and we haven't seen each other in years, now sadly not to be; you never know.

My deepest sympathy to Jane, Cecelia, Sidney, family and friends.

P.S. You know, although I tried, I never could quite figure-out his New Year's postcards, but I saved them all in my desk drawer.

Gene was a great guy. He was very generous, modest, and passionate. I will miss him.
