One of my favorite uncles, Gene would come to babysit us when my parents would go to the class reunion or a funeral of a loved one. We played some wicked rounds of Trouble while he was there! When he was in the Navy, I remember making him an Easter basket of woven construction paper. He kept it, I found out many years later, when it was discovered as he emptied out his room in his parents' house. And the book on origami he sent to me from Japan that I used so many times that pages started falling out. And the Orchid Society meetings he took me to, and the organ he played for me whenever I'd ask . . . so many wonderful memories. I asked him to drive the bride's car in my wedding. No one else could compare to Uncle Gene. He will be missed.

Thank you so much, Joanne, for sharing these priceless memories with us! It’s really cool to learn about things about my dad from before I was born! That’s so awesome that he took you to the orchid society meetings with him and I love that he sent you an origami book! ❤️
