My father (Harold) worked with Gene and always had the nicest things to say about him, as well as some pretty funny stories!
Gene will be missed greatly. Prayers and sympathies for the family.

As a youngster working summers at Gouverneur Talc, I had the chance to work with Gene. He was a good guy and one that i looked up to. RIP old friend.

Saddened to learn of Gene's death. I first met Gene in 1955 when he wrestled at 165 pounds for Gouverneur High School. During those years wrestling was a very important sport and the gyms were full to capacity especially between Canton, Gouverneur ,Massena and Watertown. Gene was a formidable opponent known for his skills and humble demeanor. He was always gracious in victory and was well liked as a competitor and colleague. Many years later I met him at a diner in Massena where his wife worked. We reminisced about the good old 1950's where it was a great time to be a kid and school spirit was paramount and life much simpler. He was a great ambassador of that generation. My deepest condolences to his dear wife and family. Dick Johnston, former wrestling team manager Massena Red Raiders. Now retired in Maryville, Tennessee
