My best memories of Gene are as a bus driver at Stamford School. He was always pleasant to all of us and so good to the kids. He was the kind of person you end up proud to say you worked with. May peace be with you all. He will be missed.

Dennis and Diane and family,
I was so sorry to see Gene had passed away. I'm going to miss the little chats we always had when I came to the Spa Shoppe to buy for my pool supplies. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. We are all going to miss him.
