I was first introduced to Gene by my husband Brian Ochs. They had worked together at Adrian Carriers and became good friends. After the passing of my husband, I kept in contact with Gene. He will be greatly missed! He had a great sense of humor and I enjoyed our talks over the years about anything and everything. RIP Gene and tell Brian Hi for me.
