Gene loved to make people laugh and smile and he had a way of making everyone he came into contact with feel special and loved. Gene loved to cook, he was a pancake master and always made the best breakfast. He was always willing to help anyone out and was very generous with his time. Gene loved his family and had a very close and special relationship with his mom.
