My deepest sympathy. When I first came to Springfield as a newly married and newly licensed pharmacist in 1977 Gene made me feel welcome. He always had encouraging words of advice. The last time I worked with him he was doing relief work at Jordan Valley pharmacy. He was still going strong and still giving me encouragement. He seemed like he was the Energizer Rabbit. Jim Weissler (PayRite / Petty’s Drug Alumni).

I'm so sad to know Gene has passed. I worked with him at PayRite pharmacy for several years. He taught me a lot. My husband and I got to visit with him and Wilma a while ago in Florida. He really enjoyed Florida. Prayers for the whole family. Rita (Tate) Barnes
