    I was sad to read this. Brings back many memories of my brothers and I walking beans for Gene for several years. We called ourselves "Larsen's Loonies" He was a great first boss for us "youngsters". My condolences to his family.
  2. Marv & Sandy Marin
    There was not a nicer guy in the world than Gene. Always upbeat and honest. We were blessed and honored to be his friends. The world was always a better place when he was in it. Sending our deepest sympathy to Mike, Steve, Dave and their families.
