Col. Herbert (Gene) Neilson passed away on April 11, and left us after a brave fight against heart disease.
Gene was born on May 27, 1933 in Chicago, Ill., to Howard and Lenora Neilson. He was raised in Aiken, South Carolina and attended Aiken High School.
After graduating from the University of North Carolina, Gene had a fulfilling 30 year career in the United States Air Force.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in his name to Salvation Army, 40 Eldridge, Vacaville 95683 or VFW National Headquarters, 406 West 34th St., Kansas City, Mo., 64111.
