Very sorry to hear about the passing of Gene. I worked with him for many years up at the Lockheed facility. I have not seen Gene in many years but will always remember him as a very special man. I remember we had just purchased our home in 1991. We were talking at lunch time about planter boxes. He invited me up to his house and pointed at a bunch of leftover redwood pieces that were left over from his barn. He then handed me a saw, some nails, a hammer and said help yourself. That's the kind of man Gene was. I built three planter boxes and brought them home. My wife was so happy.
I still have them!
Thoughts and prayers are with all of you!
