“I think with his death, Gene took a little bit of all of us with him. Gene's ability to work with people was his greatest asset,” Dennis Ernst, Service Department Supervisor, said. “Gene would travel anywhere, anytime and do a job that made GOMACO proud, and the customer completely satisfied. Gene’s reputation and ability to get the job done right, both overseas and domestically, spoke the loudest and will always be a tribute to him. Gene will be missed by everyone that ever met him and he will always be known as the ‘Gentle Giant’ to me.”
