I knew Gene since grade school and all through high school. I played football with him, sang in choir with him and experienced what life threw at all of us during our high school days. I remember he invited me to his parents house one afternoon for some deer burgers, I'd never had a deer burger before that day lol. Its odd but I thought of him a few days ago, remembering those high school days. You will truly be missed my friend. My condolences to the González family. May you rest in peace.
