Deneen, siblings and extended family,
My deepest condolences for your loss.  Your dad is finally in
peace to be with your mom, such special, loving and
adorable couple.  I recall seeing your dad on several flights
to Chicago for business, such a busy man.  May your hearts
heal as he is no longer suffering!  He will have my dad
showing him around, probably talking about car shows and
etc.  Wish I could be there for you, Deneen.
From:  With love, Nanette Roebuck-Walker, Deneen’s
childhood friend.

Before he retired, Gene would make it to California fairly
often and I always appreciated the opportunity to reminisce
about our high school days.  I like to think that I was the
inspiration for his “D” kids, but it was probably his sister
Donna, who incidentally phoned me this morning with the
sad news of his passing.  Rest in peace, Gene.
