Gene was am positive impact on my life. I met him briefly in my junior year in High School (my father was dating his wife's sister). After he died, I assisted his widow with numerous house repairs while I was in College in Houston. I ended up joining the Honolulu Police Department and later a Department in Colorado.

I have since visited the Texas Fallen Officers Memorial in Austin to get an etching of his name.
