GENE,
WAS A GREAT PERSON. HE WAS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT A TRUE LEADER AND CONTRIBUTOR OF HIS COMMUNITY CAN DO. HE IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF WHAT THE JAYCEE MOVEMENT COULD DO IN THE SIXTIES. THE LEADERSHIP TRAINING OF THAT ORGANIZATION PLANTED THE SEED FOR WHAT HE BECAME.
GENE YOUR LEGACY WILL LIVE FOR GENERATIONS TO COME IN THE FUTURE.

A real example of what America is all about. Gene came from poor. Yet accomplished so much, in business, politics, and his true love hunting and conservation. I remember his son invited me on a dove and quail hunt at one of his plantations near Albany. We were still in high school then. After hunting we went to dinner somewhere. Gene ordered a steak, and the waitress ask him how he wanted it. He said "knock the horns off it, drag it's ass over the grill one good time on each side, and put it on a plate!". I'll never forget that! He and my dad came up together, and were in the local Rotary I believe. A staunch conservative republican and doting father. He will be sorely missed. God bless him and those he left behind!
