    Gene was my brother Gary's age. Even though he was 3 years older then me I felt like he was my friend, not my brothers. That is who Gene was. I agree with Eric, every time I saw him it felt like is was yesterday since I saw him last. Condolences to his family. RIP my friend until we meet another day.

    Tara, Jenn and the rest of your family my condolences to you all. Your dad was a great man. He was always kind to me when I was younger, and as I got older, I'd run into him at the mall or when I worked at Bugaboo, and he'd always asked how my parents were and we talked for a few minutes and catch up. He always lit up when he talked about you and Jenn. Hugs to you both. Christine Marshall

    I remember looking out over the water with you when you shared the love you felt for Maria and how happy you were that you were expecting a child. Your smile would light up a room. So many great hugs when I was I having a hard go of it. My deepest respect to your family.

    I knew Gene when he worked for my father, Nate, driving big oil trucks and smashing home runs on the soft ball team down at Cy Tenny Park in West Peabody. I'll never forget when he almost took out the light pole rounding 3rd base. Sure it was big, but Gene was bigger. At least to me he was because I was just a kid. He was always nice to me. Once in a while, I would call him Bluto after the character on Popeye and he'd pretend to growl like Bluto to make me laugh. I have 25 years sobriety now thanks to people like Gene. He was very helpful and always willing to talk and took my questions seriously when I'd run into him down at the gas station on Lowell St. I ran into him a couple years back and we caught up. With Gene, it was like no time had passed. I really like that guy and I'm really gonna miss him. My heartfelt condolences to his family. No one's perfect but he was a good guy.
