Uncle Gene. A legend to those that knew him and a myth to those that didn't. If you knew him you loved him. If you didn't know him you wished you had a guy like him in your life.

You will be missed!

Word from Corey is that he was slumped over the wheel of the car. Sure wish that was stated in the report.

He could of had a heart attack or a stroke. Some people need to quit jumping to conclutions of a DWI. He was a good man. I understand that you may of been one of those who was almost hit, but sometimes, have a brain and think about the possibilities of what his situation was. Why do people automatically think negatively on things? Don't be so quick to judge.

I was driving one of the vehicles he almost hit, it's like he was purposely driving in the wrong lane. (Even though I know he probably wasn't doing so puposely.) He wasn't swerving or anything, just in the wrong lane. He must have left the road just a second or two after we turned on M and lost sight of him. Turns out he was friends with people I know. My sympathy goes out to his family.

If I could hit you with all my power I have I would hurt you so bad I loved this man more than a big brother he was not a DRUNK and to say something like that when you do not even know the situation makes you lower than a worm. Only people like you are what makes this world so bad I was just diagnosed with cancer and if Gene would have to crawl threw fire he would do it to help me if he even knew someone elses life was in jeopardy he would of taken his own instead so shame on you and shame on anyone else who has taken this atitude I hope God see's fit to make you feel the pain we all do that loved Gene with all our hearts.

Charlie,
Not the right forum to finally choose to snap on grammar. Friends and family are grieving, public is showing concern...and you pick this place to make shallow-minded grammar corrections? Start a grammar blog; you don't have to use correct grammar to show you care.

My prayers are with the family.

It is so sad and hard to lose a family member.
God will take care of him.
