Preceded in death by his beloved son-in-law, David R. Azose. Gene enjoyed traveling to all fifty states and visiting family in Great Britain and Israel. He loved reading, classical music, fast cars, long driving trips, barbequing a fine brisket, and telling war stories, legal and actual. But, most of all, he loved his family, his Jewish faith, and his many dogs, especially his beloved Red, with whom we trust he is reunited.
