Deepest condolences Luisa, Anna, & Mario. I'm so sorry to hear that Gene passed. Although it's been many years, I remember him shooting hoops with Anna & Mario to help them practice for a game, how he'd make everyone laugh at party, & that his family was the most important thing to him. Love & Prayers to your family. Rest in Paradise Gene

This goes back some years but I went to high school with Gene- I remember him as a very nice guy, involved in and dedicated to student government. Reading his story, sounds like he deepened his belief in public service and built a life by giving and living his ideals. Very sorry to hear of his passing.

I first met Gene when he came onto the Monterey County DA's Office, and I was a police officer with the City of Salinas. We established a friendship that saw me become a detective, and Gene become a great defense attorney. If a friendship can survive that, it can survive anything. After I retired, the friendship continued, and we'd get together for dinner on occasion when I was in Salinas. We never let being on opposites sides come between us on a personal level. With Gene gone, there will forever be something missing from my life in Salinas. Fair winds and following seas, my friend. I will miss you.
