I had the pleasure of attending school with Gene. He was a great guy and a lot of fun in class. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. God speed, buddy!

Rest easy Eugene, I didn´t know you very long, but it was long enough to know you we´re a hell of a good man. You can tell a lot about a person by meeting his wife and children and by the way I saw it , you we´re second to none! And one more thing! Thanks for your service sir!
