I would like to remember Gene as a man who made Astrid a very happy person. I came to know Gene through my Mother, Joan Neubert. I recall Gene assisting Mom one time with her taxes. It was through the Boxborough Council on Aging that we shared good times. He is a person that will be missed.

Very good man, husband, father, grandfather and friend to many. I'm thankful I've had him as my step dad these past 11 years. Rest in peace Gene.
