We are both so sorry to hear about the passing of Gene. Gene was the most honorable man I have ever known. He always had a good strong handshake whenever he would see you. What Connie has lost God has gained in Heaven. Gene is now in the arms of the lord walking beside Kevin. God Bless Connie and keep her safe. We are both so very sorry. Our deepest sympathy at this time goes out to Connie at this time. God Bless you, Tammy and Darren

Kathy and I extend our deepest condolences to the Stump Family. Gene and I graduated together from Lockwood High School in 1964. What I remember most about Gene was his gentle, trustworthy demeanor. Never heard him say a bad word about anyone. RIP Eugene you fought a good fight and now enjoy Heaven. God, please help Connie and the family cope with a huge loss!

So sorry for your loss. A fond memory that I have of Eugene, was at one December meeting of the Exchange Board. He brought a batch of peanut brittle to share. I made a commit that he needed to tell Connie that this was a supreme batch. He told me that he made it and it was his recipe, Uncle Ralph Duncan got a real chuckle from that. I don't think he took him serious. but I did!!!
