My sincere condolences. Gene was such a kind man. He would visit with us daily at PCC for years. This past year we have missed him! But he had been on our minds often. Rest In Peace Gene. You are missed. I’m sorry I missed the service I just found out in a meeting at PCC. That’s how much he was loved on our campus so many of us were saddened by the news.
My sincerest condolences to you all..we all have such precious memories of our days out on the Colorado range…BLESSINGS to you all
