So sad to hear of Gene's passing. My condolences to him and his family. I really miss him and I'm sure his family definitely feels the loss. I worked with Gene for several years in electronics servicing and got to know him very well. He was an incredibly hard worker; always upbeat with a great sense of humor. We worked as team always knowing what each other's next step needed to be. He was extremely efficient at timing and coordinating our work. He was kind, practical and humble. I will always remember Gene, and miss him.
