Gene worked for the Natchitoches Parish Police Jury until he was unable to work due to an accident. He enjoyed working in his yard and he possessed a green thumb and could make anything he planted grow to be impressive. He loved animals and was especially fond of his dogs Patches and Daisy. He truly loved his family and in turn they deeply loved him. His favorite times were when he was surrounded by his family at social gatherings. Gene will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
