Not sure what to say?

He had a great sense of humor and was always caring about our family. He will be deeply missed. We love you Gene!

May GOD bless you all in this time of sorrow.

Our condolences to Gene Drellishak's large family. We remember him as always a gentleman, the few times we visited his and Marilyn's large house. These were fun visits, and especially for Al's mom, Marcella Abel. RIP Gene.

I love you and I will miss you Gene. I thank God for the blessing of your path crossing mine. I very much enjoyed listening to your stories about your family whom you loved so dearly. You were so proud of each and every one of your family members. May God's eternal love surround you and may you be happy and joyful for eternity.

I pray to God to ease the sorrow of your loved ones, wipe their tears, and bring them peace, secure knowing that we will meet again.
