    Gene touched so many of our lives with his frequent visits to walmart, always stopping to sy hello to everyone and even joining us during our breaks. He knew us all by name and was so much a part of my walmart family in Glasgow. I will miss him but know in my heart that he is in a much better place. All of you are in my prayers and thoughts during this difficult time. God Bless.

    Gene was a very loving and caring person. While employed at walmart gene always made a point to come and look for me to get a hug. I was known to him as “Brown sugar” and it touched my heart to hear him call me that. If I wasn’t there he would always ask about me. When I was leaving to move back to philadelphia he told me he would miss me and it wouldn’t be the same without me. He will be greatly missed by me and my family. I know he isn’t suffering no longer and he is in a beter place. I now look at it as I have another angel looking down on me. Your family is in my prayers and may god bless you and your family at this difficult time.
