To Lois and all of the Turner family, I was so sorry to hear of your loss. He was such a fine man, and it was my privilege to work with him for nearly ten years at Dealers. He was a consummate professional, and more importantly, a warm, generous, and genuine human being. We all loved Gene, customers and coworkers alike. Please accept my deepest condolences on the passing of one so dear. Royal Morse
