Gene has been a friend of ours for many years. He enjoyed being around people so much he chose to live downtown rather than in a home. He has a sister that I know of who is currently battling cancer which is why no funeral services have been planned yet. He will be missed. RIP Gene.

Sound like a well-liked chap.
For some reason, this post made me think of the dude that used to ride around Pleasanton on his bicyle clothed only in a pair of shorts and no shoes. I haven't seen him in 3-4 years, or so. Does anyone know what happened to him?

I am very sorry to hear this news. Gene greeted me by name every time I went to Tully's, and we would talk for a little while. He was very nice to me after my father died and we talked about life & death and family matters.
I knew he had some medical problems and was in the hospital last year but was not aware it was serious.
If anyone knows the circumstances of his passing or how to contact his family to express condolences, please post here.
