Memories Timeline


  1. Marilyn and Family, Terry and I often read Weirton news via the internet. This evening we were saddened to read about Gene’s passing. We surely enjoyed many years of his love and friendship when we pastored in Weirton. Terry and Gene shared early years in New Castle and loved to talk about it. Take Care and we will certainly keep you all in our thoughts and prayers, Blessings, Janet and Terry

  2. Jim and Marci and daughters, So sorry to hear of the passing of your father, my thoughts and prayers are with you, the Lord takes care of things, as they should be. Take care….I am the lady from the pizza shop, who asked about your father.

  3. Marilyn, Jimmy, Janet, Judi, & Families We are very sorry to hear of your huband and father’s passing away. Gene was a very good friend and neighbor. We will miss him very much. George & Judi Billcheck

  4. Dear Marilyn, Bob and I are sorry for your loss. We always enjoyed visiting with you and Gene when you were at Phyllis and Paul’s home. You and the family are in our prayers. The Vintons

  5. Dear Judy, David, Janet and family, Cindy & I are very sad to hear of your loss. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

  6. Marilyn, So sorry to hear about the passing of Gene. I truly enjoyed his friendship at Cove. He always brightened my Sunday mornings. Bill

  7. To the Altobell Family, Please accept our deepest sympathy in your loss of Gene. I will always cherish the memories of the good times we had together over so many years. Yours Affectionately, Bill and Charlene McIltrot

  8. Gene was Dave’s best friend as a young man — they shared the Armed Services together, their undergraduate years at Penn State, and Dave met his first wife at Gene’s mother’s house. Gene & Marilyn became among our best friends after I joined Dave in New Castle. We shared many wonderful times together, including a mini-reunion at Penn State right after Gene & Marilyn got married. Because Dave just got out of the hospital yesterday (May 18), we were unable to attend the funeral today. But we have been thinking about it and him & all of you all day long. When Dave gets all his strength back (he’s doing quite well), we’ll drive down to see Marilyn in Weirton. We love you, Libby & Dave
