    Gene had a terrific voice & delivery. He is sadly missed but his legacy continues on his recordings. Many fond memories from the 'baby boomer' generation of the 60s & 70s. Go to www.findagrave.com to see his Biography & burial details ~~ just click on Famous Grave Search. Rest In PEACE. God bless~!
