  1. Hi Jerry. Just found out about Gene from my brother there. I am so very sorry. Have some great memories from many years ago there in Amarillo. May you find peace in all your memories. My deepest sympathy to you and yours!

  2. Gene was a good friend for 70 years.
    We were neighbors growing up and had so much fun playing baseball with the neighbor hood kids. We remained friends all through our lives. Gene had a tender heart and helped so many people during his life. So blessed to have known him.
    Praying God’s comfort for his family.
