Was very sad to hear of Eugene’s passing, In the time we knew him, it was always nice to be around him. He had a good sense of humor and was fun to go with on the hunting trips during squirrel season. Rest in Peace dear friend….
So sad to hear of Gene’s passing! My heart, thoughts and prayers go out to Norma and family. Tom worked with Gene for years in the Slag Dump and he was a friend to everyone. One of the things Tom and I are going to miss most is our breakfasts with Gene & Norma at Bob Evans. This was a bi-monthly date, every payday. You will be missed dear friend! May your Spirit Soar and your Memory be Eternal! R.I.P. Gene!
Our condolences to your family. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. God Bless, Bill & Paulette Galiotos Minnie Bogdan
Dear Norma, Genie was my big brother during my childhood when I lived with Aunt Elsie and Uncle Mike. Although we have been separated by time and distance, I look back at that time, (now as an old adult) with sweet and loving memories. Please accept my sincere condolences, I am so sorry for your loss. God bless your family.
Our sympathy and prayers Eric and your entire family.
