Monday, July 1, 2019I had the pleasure to coach high school football with Gene at PaulVI for the 1988 season. Despite our multiple starting injuries before the season began Gene remained positive and upbeat for the entire 0-8-1 season. He remained a gentleman on the sidelines to all coaches and officials . Our team never quit on us and it was a result of the high respect the players had for Gene, the head coach and the examples he had set for all of our team. He was a role model for the players and a mentor to us coaches. To Gene’s family and friends please accept my sincere condolences for a man who touched many people in the most positive ways.

Monday, July 1, 2019With a 15 year age differential, My brother, Gene, was more a mentor to me. When it came to baseball, I know of none better than him in explaining the fundamentals of how to play the game. Many others growing up in the original Summerdale Boys Club learned the how to play the game of baseball and basketball. My education started as a 7 oe 8 year old when he would take me (under orders from our Mom) to his Pen-Del League games, where he played throughout the 60's. I became the batboy and learned ow to keep score. I'll miss the stories which often seemed like screenplays from the Young Rascals TV Show. He spoke of our late brother, Frank, with great respect. They were best friends and seemed to be in the middle of all of those great stories from Agusta Street. Frank had the speed to get away, but Gene, easily recognizable with the red hair, always seemed to be the one that got in the most trouble. He always told me that Frank was the best athlete in the neighborhood. I'd need way-more-time. I will miss Gene, as I miss Frank and Mom and Dad. Gerry

Monday, July 1, 2019So sorry to hear of Gene's passing. To his family my sincere condolences. Gene and I were members of NJBUA Camden Chapter for many years. Gene was one of our top baseball umpires while I officiated in that chapter. I officiated more softball than baseball, however in an emergency I was called to umpire a baseball game with him. I was assigned the plate position for this game. Gene was an outstanding official. At the conclusion of the game he came to me and told me I umpired a great game. That meant a lot to me hearing that from Gene. He was always requested to umpire the top scheduled games. I have many good memories sharing baseball stories with him. Once again, my sincere condolences. Bob Mannino President, West Chapter 5 Softball Association

Saturday, June 29, 2019My Uncle Gene, an incredible man who loved his family beyond measure, will be so terribly missed. I’m hoping for solace in his being reunited with Grandmom, Grandpop, and my dad. Uncle Gene, thank you for the countless childhood memories that bring me such joy. I’ll forever cherish the time we spent together, our walks with Buttons, and how you cared for me when I was young. My daughters adoration of you is immeasurable, they so loved sharing stories with you and hearing about growing up with their Pop. We love you so very much. I’m praying for peace, comfort and healing for my Aunt Nancy, all of my cousins, my aunts and uncle, and our family. Uncle Gene, give Pop and big bear hug for us. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Saturday, June 29, 2019My pop made his way to heaven and is finally free of the grasp that cancer had on him. From the day I was born, I was so much more to him than his granddaughter. He was the first man I ever loved and the only one to never break my heart or let me down. He taught me how to tie my shoes, hit nasty line drives and that there’s always room for ice cream. Most importantly, he taught me what truly unconditional love really feels like. He was the strongest man I ever knew and the definition of what a good man should be. He never complained while his life was stricken with illness after illness from such a young age. If you weren’t told, you’d never know he wasn’t well. He just kept going and kept loving and laughing. They don’t make them like that anymore. He loved baseball, God, body surfing and black jelly beans. Most of all, he loved his family. I would say I could never fill the void his passing has left in my soul but he loved me enough to last me the rest of my life. I’ve been praying for his peace for so long and part of me is thankful he has finally found it and he is back home with his mother, brother and our buddy Harry Kalas. I will always love you, every time I dance I will be standing on your feet and if I ever get married, you will walk me down the aisle, just like I always dreamed you would. Don’t worry pop, my car is running fine... “love ya and leave ya”

Saturday, June 29, 2019My grandfather taught me how to ride a bike, how to ride a wave, how to forgive. We both loved black jelly beans, he’d always tease me when I’d take some out of his stash. He was always so proud, even when I didn’t do anything. But when I gave birth to averi, I couldn’t do anything better. That little girl kept him going as long as he did, and he lit up anytime she walked in the room. I will forever miss and always cherish our Wednesday’s together, and every other moment we shared together. I love and miss you so much Pop, thank you for just being you. Because you were the best.
