He will be missed at our 50th Reunion. I remember his smiles from our last reunion.

I first knew Gene at Allison.   He was always a gentleman; there was a sweetness to him, even as a junior high boy.  He enjoyed singing and being in the large groups/choirs.  It was wonderful to see him at our 45th reunion and to meet his wife.  I'm so glad he was able to be with us then.   Ella Lehl Frederick
