“Gene was a "giver" in a world of takers. He gave encouragement, shared knowledge,moral support, and his time/ effort to help. His impact could never be found in any report. His passion to lift 4-H and staff to a higher plane enabled and reached the entire state and beyond. We are all better to having known and worked with him.
“To the family of Gene I am so sorry for your loss if there is anything I can do for you please don't hesitate to let me know.
“Pat, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your husband. Although it has been many, many years since High School days, I have never forgotten you and our friendship back then. May God bless and comfort you as only He can. Our prayers are with you.
“I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Gene. He was truly a wonderful man who had a major impact on so many of our lives. I first met him in 1971 when I started the Norfolk Extension unit. He was a great mentor for me as Unit Director since he held this position in Chesapeake. I have many fond memories of him.
My thoughts and prayers are with you (Pat and "kids").
