Dear family, we are so sad to hear of the loss of Gene. He and Anne were great friends of our parents, Tom and Carol Peck. They were at our wedding 29 years ago and all of our lake parties in Lake Geneva. Tom passed last June and Carol passed 5 years ago. Anne stood up for them in their wedding in 1954. Such a sad loss and we send our heartfelt condolences. Best to you all, Jim and Vickie Peck, Lake Geneva
